Wheel alignment costs

Posted on June 28, 2016 at 9:27 am

If you find that your car is pulling to one side when you drive it, there is a vibration coming from the steering or your tyres are wearing unevenly, then you may need to get your tracking checked by having a wheel alignment.

Wheel alignment is also sometimes referred to as wheel tracking and should be part of standard vehicle maintenance. This involves adjusting the angles of the wheels to the recommended position as detailed in the vehicle’s manufacturer specification. It helps reduction tyre wear and ensures the optimum performance and handling of the vehicle on the road.

It’s not just tyre wear that can suffer by incorrect wheel alignments. You may also find that your braking distance increases and your drive quality and fuel economy are also affected.

Only some garages will be able to do a wheel alignment and it you have recently had a bump, even if its just clipping the curb slightly then I would recommend getting your wheel alignment done. It usually costs about £30 but there may be a charge if it needs adjusting.
