What is Wheel Alignment?
This is quite simply the direction your wheels face. It’s also often called “tracking”. It might sound simple, but over time your wheels can gradually fall out of alignment and end up facing either slightly too far outwards or inwards – otherwise known as “toe out” and “toe in”.
How to Spot The Problem
At Calder Road Garage, we provide wheel alignment Bellshill motorists have been counting for over thirty years. As a part of that, we’ve noticed that customers whose vehicles need our wheel alignment service often complain of the same sorts of symptoms.
One you may recognise, when the alignment is quite far out, is that your vehicle might pull to one side when you’re trying to drive straight. The vehicle may also become somewhat unstable, and not inspire much confidence in terms of its handling – if you’re experiencing this it’s highly important you get in touch as soon as possible. If your vehicle is not tracking straight, it’s not safe to drive because not only is it more difficult to control, but your brakes will not work as effectively.
Alignment is rarely that far out of adjustment though. More common symptoms you might encounter would be a sudden increase in your vehicle’s fuel consumption, or your tyres wearing both more quickly and unevenly. These are both highly common symptoms of wheels needing an alignment. Keep a listen out for any squealing or scrubbing when you’re driving at low speeds, and be mindful of vibrations through the steering wheel – this might also signal your wheels are out of alignment.
If you have any doubts, it’s always best to make sure – simply pop into Calder Road Garage and we’d be more than happy to check your wheels for you.
