What is a wheel alignment?

Put simply, the term "wheel alignment" refers to how well the wheels on your vehicle are aligned relative to each other, as well as to the centre line of the vehicle. While alignment settings can differ between manufacturers and models, all vehicles are designed to deliver precise steering and braking responses - but only if the wheel alignment angles are correct for that vehicle.

Benefits of wheel alignment:

  • Increased fuel economy.
  • Prolonged tyre life.
  • Braking and steering response is improved.
  • Straight-line tracking is improved.
  • Driver fatigue is reduced as the overall driving experience is improved.

Signs you need a wheel alignment

Maintaining the wheel alignment on your car is an integral aspect of its overall maintenance and upkeep. However, this very important step is often ignored or skipped until the first symptoms of poor wheel alignment show up in the form of ruined tyres. Here are some common signs to look out for:

  • Uneven or accelerated wear on the edges of your tyres.
  • The steering has a “mushy” feel or has become less responsive.
  • If your car's steering wheel pulls to one side.

When should you get a wheel alignment?

Obviously, the best time to get a wheel alignment is when noticeable symptoms of poor alignment are present, but there are also other “best” times:

  • When you rotate the tyres.
  • When you replace one or more tyres.
  • When you replace standard steel rims with lightweight alloy rims.
  • After any maintenance or repairs on steering or suspension systems - both front and rear.
  • When you perform any modification that alters the vehicle ride height or weight distribution.
