If you're wondering, do I need a wheel alignment? The answer is almost certainly yes. Alignments keep your wheels pointed in the appropriate direction. If they're out of alignment, you can notice some unpleasant and potentially dangerous symptoms.

Wheel alignments are a crucial element of vehicle maintenance for various reasons, including poor fuel economy, earlier tyre wear, and difficulties steering. However, you will want to find a local service to you so that you don’t have to drive a long distance, potentially at risk. So if you're wondering where the best wheel alignment service in Chelmsford is, you have come to the right place!

Signs of poor wheel alignment

There are a few tell-tale signs that mean misalignment is present, such as:
  • Tyre wear that is uneven or occurs quickly
  • Your vehicle starts to sway to one side
  • Tyres that squeal
  • When driving straight, your steering wheel is crooked

What happens if I leave it?

Think again if you believe you can put up with a misaligned steering wheel or a lot of vibration without suffering long-term consequences. Poor wheel alignment accelerates tyre wear. It also reduces fuel efficiency, causes wheels to work against each other, strains suspension components, and makes braking difficult. When your car is out of alignment, it impacts the entire vehicle and may jeopardise your safety.

What is the wheel alignment process?

The geometry of the suspension system, which is made up of various components that work together to support and turn the vehicle, is known as alignment. Control arms, struts, shocks, mounting points, and steering components are built to fit into specific regions in suspension systems. Wheels must be aligned correctly for all four tyres to go in the same direction and rotate simultaneously. Even a slight deviation in geometry might affect the vehicle's suspension.

An alignment is a method our mechanics use at Tyre Smart to restore the proper alignment of your vehicle's suspension. After making changes to the vehicle's tyres and axles, the wheels are aligned with each other and can make good contact with the road. Our mechanics will most likely use a hoist to lift your automobile and utilise a piece of alignment equipment with clamping devices on the wheels. The equipment is connected to a computer. Our mechanics adjusts a series of measurements to ensure everything is in perfect alignment.

Great place! Friendly, approachable staff and a range of price options for new tyres. Don't think you have to have a flash car/wheels, they sort all cars - including standard family cars like mine. They have a waiting room with toilet - always handy. Tyre Smart is easily reached in Witham...long opening hours to suit you. I have never had a less than good experience.
