If your wheels are not correctly aligned, your car's handling and maintenance may deteriorate, putting you, your vehicle, and passengers in danger. That is why wheel alignment, also known as wheel tracking, is critical. It guarantees that all of your wheels are pointing forward, allowing you to drive comfortably, effectively, and safely. So book a wheel alignment for your car or van in South Woodham Ferrers with Tyre Smart today.

What is the wheel alignment process?

An alignment is a technique performed by our mechanic to restore appropriate suspension function to your car. By adjusting the vehicle's tyres and axles, the wheels are aligned and can make good contact with the road. Our mechanic will most likely hoist your vehicle and utilise an alignment machine with clamping mechanisms for the wheels. Our mechanic connects the device to a computer and makes exact changes to a series of measurements to ensure that everything is perfectly aligned.

Signs of poor wheel alignment

The majority of cases of inadequate alignment can be identified by how your steering wheel feels and behaves. Because poor alignment affects the wheels, and the wheels are what you control with the steering wheel, paying attention to your steering wheel is the greatest way to detect poor alignment. However, there are other deciding variables that indicate a lack of alignment:
  • Uneven steering wheel – Keep your steering wheel straight and balanced to the dash when driving down a straight road. If your steering wheel is not centred and you have to turn it to one side or the other to maintain your vehicle straight on the road, it is most likely misaligned. The direction the steering wheel faces indicates the overcompensation you use to keep the car straight on the road.
  • Uneven tyre wear – Uneven tyre wear directly results from your tyres failing to hit the correct pressure settings. When your car is misaligned, your tyres bear the brunt of the wear. Misalignment might also result in some tyres wearing out faster than others.
  • Uncomfortable ride – The smoothness of the ride is another sign that your vehicle is out of alignment. If you have a bumpy ride, your wheel may be unevenly worn, indicating that it's time for a re-alignment.

What happens if I leave it?

Improper wheel alignment on your car can endanger you and other drivers. If you feel your vehicle has a bad alignment, have it checked out and don't overlook the warning indications. Otherwise, an expensive repair or tyre replacement may be required.

Excellent & Friendly Service. They ended up saving me over £100 by repairing the issue rather than replacing the tire

I wanted to get a 4 wheel alignment check done on my DB11 as I'm going on a trip across Europe in a couple of weeks and will be covering quite a few miles. The first two local places I booked in said they could do it, but once it was up on the ramp changed their mind and said I should take it to my main dealer. I called the main dealer who wanted £250 to do it, they needed to keep the car all day and couldn't fit me in for a couple of weeks. Someone recommended TyresSmart to me and I couldn't have been more impressed. No appt necessary, the kit they used looked really top rate, they did the alignment for me and give me a full report inside an hour - and all for less than £80. Thanks guys.
