The importance of correct wheel alignment

Ensuring your wheels are accurately aligned improves both the performance and longevity of your tyres.

Wheels often become misaligned by hitting potholes, bumps, kerbs, driving on uneven surfaces and through general wear and tear. It is therefore essential to maintain accurate alignment of your wheels, to ensure their
quality and performance remains optimal.

What is a Wheel Alignment?

Wheel alignment refers to the angle of your wheels in comparison to each other and the body of your vehicle.

Wheel alignment is adjusted by altering the vehicle’s suspension. Using state of the art technology, TyreAware can accurately determine exactly how much adjustment is required and apply accordingly. We recommend that you get your wheel alignment checked at least every 10000km as well as any time you experience a change in the driving or handling of your vehicle.

What are the Warning Signs of Misaligned Wheels?

The angle of your wheels can become skewed over time causing various changes to your driving experience.

Warning signs that it is time to get your wheel alignment checked:

  • Uneven tread wear
  • A steering wheel that is off-centre when driving straight
  • Vehicle pulling off to the left or right

Why is Wheel Alignment Important?

Maintaining proper wheel alignment is essential to avoid unnecessary wear on your tyres, steering, suspension, and brakes.

Accurate wheel alignment optimises driving stability, maximises tyre life and improves
your vehicle’s overall handling performance.
