Wheel alignment or tracking, is part of standard vehicle maintenance that consists of adjusting the angles of wheels so that they are set to the manufacturers specification. The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tyre wear, and to ensure that vehicle drives straight and true (without “pulling” to one side).
Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.
Wheel alignment problems can be caused by hitting a kerb, driving into a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. It is important to get your wheel alignment checked annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres.
