Your car comprises of thousands of parts, many of which wear down over time due to the constant loads and demands exerted on them. Many moving parts are held to the car body by rubber mountings. These elements wear out with time, causing specific components to deviate significantly from the factory settings.

When the steering, suspension, and wheels become out of alignment, the outcome is generally unequal and premature tyre wear. Tyres aren't cheap, and no one wants to incur the costs of replacing them, so making sure they last as long as possible safely is an essential element of car maintenance. That’s where we at Tyre Smart can help you. We have been helping the drivers of Tiptree and the surrounding areas keep their vehicles safely on the road.

Why choose Tyre Smart?

Tyre Smart is one of the few companies that provides professional wheel alignment services in Tiptree and the surrounding areas. This is not due to the process being impossible. It is simply because the other companies have not invested in the necessary equipment and training. At Tyre Smart, we understand that you are using our professional services to both save time and protect your vehicle in the long run. The ability to not only fit your tyres but also ensure that they do not wear out prematurely due to alignment faults is, in our opinion, the only method to provide a quality alignment tyre service!

What is the wheel alignment process?

A wheel alignment is also known as a 'tyre alignment,' however, the terms are interchangeable. You're restoring your suspension to its factory settings. These options boil down to modifying three variables: toe, caster, and camber. Toe refers to how far in or out your tyres point horizontally. Camber is similar to toe but is positioned vertically. And caster is the angle formed by your steering's higher and lower pivot points with your tyres' contact patches. Technicians modify the various suspension components during a wheel alignment until the toe, camber, and caster are back where they should be.

Causes of poor wheel alignment

Driving affects your vehicle in ways other than paint chipping and scratches. Your tyres wear down over time due to friction, and they eventually need to be replaced. Usually, tens of thousands of miles are required, especially with regular rotation. However, if you're replacing your tyres every few months, you could need a wheel alignment. You will most likely encounter potholes, bumps, and other irregularities while driving or riding your motorcycle. Your suspension and tyres will naturally help to soften the impact. However, these impacts jar the suspension components out of their optimal settings. When this occurs, your wheels are out of alignment.

What happens if I leave it?

Uneven wear can drastically hinder a tyre's performance and even endanger lives because an unevenly worn tyre is more likely to blow out. Misaligned wheels also have lower fuel economy since they have more resistance with the road, resulting in higher gas mileage. We discovered that preventative wheel alignment could increase average tyre life by up to 20%.

We encourage you to visit the Tyre Smart centre for a tyre alignment if you notice any symptoms. The sooner you have your alignment checked, the less damage you will cause to the rest of your vehicle. So don't hesitate to contact us on 01376 511177 or visit us today!

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.
