Why does my vehicle need alignment?
Wheel Alignment and Tracking
Wheel alignment, or tracking, is the process of ensuring your vehicle’s wheels are set to the optimum position, as per your cars manufacturer’s specifications.
Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.
Wheel alignment problems can be caused by hitting a kerb, driving into a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. It is important to get your wheel alignment checked annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres.
Checking your wheel alignment on your car or van regularly can help possibly prolong the life of your tyres by up to 12,000 miles and increase fuel efficiency due to the reduced rolling resistance with the road – saving you money at the fuel pump.
Keep an eye out for unusual wear on your tyres, such as premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder, which could be a sign of incorrect alignment. DGT offers a free wheel alignment check at all of our customers (where conditions allow.) so stop by if you need any help.
