    When should I check my wheel alignment?

    There are a number of signs to look out for that suggest you need to get your tyres checked by a professional, including:

    Even if you don’t seem to be experiencing any problems with your wheel alignment, we still recommend that you have it checked annually to help prevent future issues with your car.


    Front-wheel alignment should be done after new wheels are installed. This helps to ensure a long life span by preventing premature wear and lowering fuel consumption, saving you money.

    In some cases, misalignment can also put you in danger while driving, so if you notice any issues, a professional inspection is vital.

    If the wheels on your car are not aligned properly, you are compromising your safety on the road. Worn tyres are dangerous and can hinder your vehicle’s ability to brake and steer correctly. This can result in serious accidents, therefore it is extremely important to correct this immediately.

    Wheel alignment does improve fuel economy as it helps to make the whole drive smoother. If the engine does not have to work as hard on a smooth journey, less fuel is being burned.

    This is just one of many reasons to ensure your vehicle’s wheels are in the optimum position with wheel alignment.

    Tyres wearing unevenly can happen for several reasons. Most often, this is caused by tyres that are over or underinflated or suspension that is worn out.

    However, incorrect toe alignment can cause your tyres to wear unevenly and decrease their life span. Avoid this from happening by making alignment checks a part of your regular car maintenance routine.

    Yes. Getting your car’s misalignment positions corrected will give you a much smoother drive. This is due to your car and steering wheel no longer pulling to one side, making your drive much easier and less stressful.
