Unaligned wheels can cause premature tyre and suspension wear
As a Tyre and Wheel specialist The Tyre Factory is well positioned to maximise the "Life of your Tyres" and when you speak to our specialists, they will advise you as to whats best for your vehicle.
If your vehicle's wheels are not aligned correctly, they could be causing premature wear on your tyres and suspension components. This will cause problems with your vehicle's handling, performance and the overall safety of the vehicle.
Simple things like bumping into a kerb or driving over a pothole can throw your wheel alignment out of place. It's important to get this fixed quickly before it leads to larger problems.
How does a wheel alignment work?
Wheel alignment describes the measurement, analysis and adjustment of your vehicle's steering and suspension angles to ensure the wheels are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other.
Wheel alignment is often confused with wheel balancing. The two really have nothing to do with each other except that they both affect ride and handling. Our technicians have been trained in the practice of wheel alignment and use the latest vehicle alignment equipment.
When to get a wheel alignment
If your vehicle's wheels are misaligned, you could notice a slight steering wheel shimmy where the vehicle feels as if it's pulling to one side. Your tyres may squeal when turning and you could experience poor steering control.
Even if your car appears to be running well, we recommend having your wheel alignment checked every 10,000km for maximum tyre life.
Many handling problems can be corrected by an alignment - with all the system components properly aligned, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a much smoother ride.
The The Tyre Factory Ace Alignment System offers two kinds of alignment:
Front and Rear Wheel Alignment
For vehicles with adjustable rear suspension, all four wheels are aligned to the geometric centre of the vehicle, ensuring that the vehicle tracks straight ahead and the steering wheel is centred.
Standard wheel alignment
Our technicians can offer you a two and four-wheel alignment service (dependent on your vehicle requirement) that is fast, efficient and competitively priced.
