Every vehicle has a different combination of camber, castor and toe measurements. These must be correctly measured, interpreted and adjusted by an expert. Our state of the art system will have your vehicle’s specifications, as recommended by the manufacturer, available for reference to ensure the best possible results.
In its most basic form, a wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. The purpose of these adjustments is maximum tyre life and a vehicle that tracks straight and true when driving along a straight and level road.
Wheel Alignment is often confused with Wheel Balancing. The two really have nothing to do with each other except for the fact that they affect ride and handling. If a wheel is out of balance, it will cause a vibration at highway speeds that can be felt in the steering wheel and/or the seat. If the alignment is out, it can cause excessive tyre wear and steering or tracking problems.
If you have any questions on this process or would like help booking, send us a message or call (087) 38 74 992.
