Wheel alignment refers to the angle at which your wheels sit against the vehicle. Misaligned wheels can have several causes like hitting a curb, minor collisions or simply the gradual wear on regular use. This can all have an impact on your vehicle's wheel alignment.
What are the benefits of correct wheel alignment?
- Reduced tyre wear - Misalignment is a major cause of premature tyre wear as more weight is being placed on one part of the tyre causing that area of the tread to wear faster. Over the years, a properly aligned car can add thousands of miles to tyre life.
- Improved fuel consumption - Misalignment results in increased drag, otherwise known as rolling resistance, on the tyres which lead to an increase in fuel consumption. Correct wheel alignment along with the right tyre pressures minimises rolling resistance which improves fuel consumption.
- Improved handling - Many handling problems can be corrected by four-wheel alignment, giving you the driver a better and enjoyable driving experience.
- Safer driving - Correct wheel alignment maximises your car's handling and stability which is essential when taking emergency or evasive action. Also, uneven tyre wear caused by misalignment will negatively affect your braking distance.
