At JJ's AutoCare we use specialist equipment to make quick and accurate adjustments to the front wheels of your vehicle and with a front wheel alignment cost of only £39 why not add this to your next safety inspection?
Wheel alignment is also sometimes referred to as wheel tracking and should be part of the standard vehicle maintenance undertaken on your car. This involves adjusting the angles of the wheels to the recommended position as outlined in a vehicle's manufacturer specification. It contributes to the reduction of tyre wear and to ensure the optimum performance and handling of the vehicle on the road.
All new vehicles are sold with their wheels correctly aligned and adjusted, drivers should undertake initial checks on their new vehicle within the first 3 months; this will minimise the possibility of the tyre specifications drifting outside of the manufacturer's guidelines. Failure to check this may lead to unnecessary pulling or wear on the tyre. Drivers may not notice potential defects at first but after time it can cause lasting damage. Typical side effects are steering vibration which can cause driver fatigue through constant pressure or the vehicle pulling to one side.
Tyre wear is not the only area of the vehicle that can suffer if correct wheel alignment is not set, The braking distance, driving quality and even fuel economy are also affected.
Typical signs of incorrect wheel tracking:
Uneven or feathered tyre wear
Steering wheel vibration
Drag or pulling
Audible distress while turning corners
Incorrect wheel alignment, can also apply undue pressure to tyres which can cause them to lean into one another. When that happens your vehicle faces resistance on the road surface making the car work much harder to drive along in a straight line therefore burning up more fuel than normal which is bad for your wallet and the environment.
At JJ;s AutoCare we use Supertracker Wheel Alignment equipment, which offers a fast and accurate system for your front wheels, and is considered the most trusted equipment in the UK... We also have the correct wheel alignment systems for customers who require four wheel (front and rear) alignment. This system differs from standard front wheel alignment so prices may vary if this is required.
