Wheel Alignment

Wheel Alignment

Wheel Alignment Kettering

Wheel alignment also known as tracking is the way inwhcih the wheel point and sit in relation to the car and the road. It is measured in toe, camber and castor. If the wheel alignment or tracking of your wheels is not to manufacturers specs there can be a  detrimental effect on both handling and tyre wear. The following are all benefits to having the tracking done on your car:

Reduced Tyre Wear
Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tyre wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tyre life.

Better Fuel Mileage
Fuel mileage increases as rolling resistance decreases. Total alignment sets all four wheel parallel which, along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance.

Improved Handling
Does your car pull to one side? Does the steering wheel vibrate? Many handling problems can be corrected by total alignment.

Safer Driving
A suspension system inspection is part of our alignment procedure. This allows us to spot worn parts before they cause costly problems.

Wheel Alignment Kettering

Toe looks at how parallel the wheels are in relation to one another when viewed from above, toe in/out causes excessive tyre wear.


Wheel Alignment Kettering

Camber is the angle of the wheel in comparison to the road, when viewed from the front. Correcting the camber ensures your tyres are vertical to the road, to optimise the handling of your car.


Wheel Alignment Kettering

Caster looks at the angle of steering pivot when viewed from the side of the vehicle. Although adjustment on some cars is limited and caster settings don’t cause excessive wear on your tyres, it’s important to ensure the caster is equal on both sides of the car to avoid any problems with straight line stability and reduce the pressure on steering.

 

Sure signs your tracking may be out are as follows

  • When on a straight road your steering wheel isnt straight
  • Excessive tyre wear on the edges of the tyres
  • Unexpected understeer or oversteer
  • A higher MPG than normal
