Does my car require wheel alignment check?
The signs to look out for are:
- Uneven wear on tyre treads.
- The vehicle pulls to one side when driving.
- You are driving straight, but your driving wheel isn’t centred.
- One side of the tyre treads is completely worn, and the rest is still in good condition.
- Any of these conditions above could be caused by poor wheel alignment, it also could be a case of worn-out steering or suspension joints.
Wheel Alignment is the Measurement of complex suspension angles and the adjustment of a variety of steering/suspension components. It is a suspension-tuning tool which greatly influences the vehicle’s handling and tyre wear.
Wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground, thus maximising tyre life and ensures straight and true tracking along a straight and level road.
The primary static suspension angles that need to be measured and adjusted are caster, camber, toe and thrust angle. The following are definitions Conditions and Possible Causes of each angle and its influence on a vehicle and its tyres.
The camber angle is defined as the angle of the wheel viewed from the front of the car. We express camber in degrees; Negative camber tells us that the top of the tyre leans towards the vehicle and positive when it leans away from the car.
Caster is the angel, which the steering pivot makes when the vehicle is viewed from the side. Angled towards the front of the car is negative caster and angled towards the back of the car is positive camber. It is usually measured as a line between the steering systems upper and lower pivot points.
If you are not too sure about your vehicle’s tyre conditions or wheel alignment, then, please don’t hesitate to contact us, we would be delighted to assist further.
