Wheel alignment or tracking is important for good road holding and to maximise the life of the tyres. Hitting a kerb or driving at speed through a pot hole can result in misalignment. To have your wheels alligned by us simply book an appointment by calling us on 01405 960321


For most cars alligning the front wheels will resolve many of the uneven tyre wear problems. However there will be some cases where all 4 wheels will need to be alligned. On checking your vehicle our staff can advise on requirements, and if adjustments can be made will advise of the additional cost.


The direction and angle at which the tyres are set are both important. Wheel allignment involves checking the direction and angle against manufacturers specifications and are both equally important. You may hear these described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.


  • The "toe" refers to whether the front of the tyres across an axle are closer or further apart than the rear of the tyres. Different types of vehicles need different toe settings to allow for the way that wheels pull either towards each other or apart


  • The "Camber" is the inward or outward tilt of a tyre and is specified by the vehicle manufacturer. It can be affected by potholes in the road and needs to be checked regularly to see if any adjustment is required.


  • Incorrect wheel allignment can result in rapid wearing on the edges of the tyre and could affect the handling on the vehicle and certainly mean a replacement earlier than would otherwise be required.
