Wheel alignment is also sometimes referred to as wheel tracking and should be part of standard vehicle maintenance undertaken by your local service centre. This involves adjusting the angles of the road wheels to the recommended position as outlined in a vehicle’s manufacturer specification. It contributes to the reduction of tyre wear and to ensure the optimum performance and handling of the vehicle on the road. Drivers may not notice potential defects at first but after time it can cause lasting uneven tyre wear. Tyre wear is not the only area of the vehicle that can suffer if correct wheel alignment is not set, braking distance, driving quality and even fuel economy are all affected.
Incorrect wheel alignment, can also apply undue pressure to tyres which can cause them to lean into one another. When that happens, your vehicle faces resistance on the road surface making the car work much harder to drive along in a straight line therefore burning up more fuel than normal which is bad for your wallet and the environment.
