Wheel alignment Necessary

STAFF at a car care and motorcycle maintenance centre in Somerset are asking motorists to check their vehicles’ wheel alignment to help save them money on fuel costs (March, 2015).  Autoserv…

wheel alignment is something that the tyre trade are always harping on about.

To be truthful drivers usually do have the cars alignment checked. Of course, when they have new tyres fitted. The thing is that it really does save you money. In the long run. If your wheels are not aligned correctly. Consequently, then it firstly it means that your nice new, probably expensive tyres will scrub off.

This happens on the inside or the outside edges of the tyres. Therefore,  could cost you half the life of your tyres. I love showing the images of tyres that we have removed here in Halifax Yorkshire UK.

One of the problems that we have is when we are very busy. Hence, such as this week with a bank holiday coming up for Easter. Motorists want their new tyres fitting at once. Because of this we do not have time to carry out the free wheel alignment checks that we normally do.

We always point out to the customers that the car is out of alignment , but they forget and fail to return to get the work carried out.

Another problem that the motorists get with out of alignment cars is the the steering wheel is not straight and the car pulls to one side. in this case as well as doing the alignment, we have to also straighten their steering wheel. Depending which model the car is then we may have to charge a little extra, especially if the car is fitted with steering sensors, like some of the BMW’s and Mercedes cars.

This means that when the job is complete then we have to reset the warning light with a special computer the we had to buy(although the computer does other functions, besides that).

Bringing this post to 2022, we now use the latest computer based four wheel tracking equipment. So, this modern machine will be capable of adjusting camber and caster as well as the tracking.
