At TyreZone, you safety is of utmost importance to us. That is why offer a comprehensive wheel alignment service to ensure your vehicle is safe on the road and also to ensure there is no premature tyre wear.
Wheel alignment, sometimes also referred to as tracking, is part of standard vehicle maintenance that consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the car manufacturers specification. The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tyre wear, and to ensure that vehicle travel is straight and true (without “pulling” to one side). Alignment angles can also be altered beyond the vehicle manufacturers specifications to obtain a specific handling characteristic. Motorsport and off-road applications may call for angles to be adjusted well beyond “normal” for a variety of reasons.
Wheel alignment should be checked whenever new tyres are installed, suspension components installed, when the vehicle has encountered a major road hazard or curb and any time unusual tyre wear patterns appear. Wheel Alignment is the Measurement of complex suspension angles and the adjustment of a variety of suspension components. It is a suspension-tuning tool which greatly influences the vehicle’s handling and tyre wear. Wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground, thus maximizing tyre life and ensures straight and true tracking along a straight and level road. The primary static suspension angles that need to be measured and adjusted are caster, camber, toe and thrust angle. The following are definitions Conditions and Possible Causes of each angle and its influence on a vehicle and its tires.
