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 company ! I've used many tyre outlets over the years and Tyre-Smart are without doubt the best by far ! I first went to have my steering alignment checked on my Porsche Boxster, and was really impressed with the whole operation and low prices. From my first enquiry, their knowledge, advice and Honesty were brilliant. The whole crew are happy and cheerful, the waiting room, and overall efficiency make it a pleasure to be there ! I've had the suspension aligned and 4 Michelin Pilot Sport tyres on my Porsche and just had 2 OEM Dunlops on my Audi. I strongly recommend Tyre-Smart and would urge anyone to use them.
