What is Wheel Alignment?
Here at TyrePlus, we provide a wheel alignment service, which can be incorporated into a routine checkup or vehicle repair. Car alignment ensures that the wheels are perpendicular to the ground and are parallel to each other. When wheels are aligned perfectly, the car should drive straight even when your hands aren't holding onto the steering wheel. If you find that when driving your vehicle tends to veer off to the right or left, you are definitely due for a wheel alignment servicing by one of our professional auto mechanics.
The Importance of Wheel Alignment
Maintaining a properly aligned car will ensure safe driving, with optimal performance and efficiency. Our technicians will gladly answer any questions you may have regarding car alignment, as well as explain the importance of an accurately aligned vehicle. Faulty alignment results in uneven air pressure in the tyres and increased friction resistance from the road leading to higher fuel consumption. Improper wheel alignment also causes uneven wear and tear on the car tyres, which will then need to be repaired and even replaced more frequently.
A faulty aligned wheel creates uneven pressure on the tyre and as a result they push against each other. This will cause your vehicle to have to work much harder to drive properly, caused by uneven friction and more resistance from the road surface. When your car has to put out more energy than normal, the vehicle will have to use more fuel to keep it going. Wheel alignment provided by us will allow your car much less resistance when driving and will save you from a hefty petrol bill.
As a result of your car's proper wheel alignment and lowered petrol consumption, your car will emit less toxic greenhouse gases into the air. We all want a cleaner environment and by increasing the efficiency of your vehicle with wheel and car alignment, you will be helping everyone with the decrease in carbon monoxide emissions.
Save Money With Less Tyre Replacements
The cost of replacing your tyres with new ones can be pretty significant. More resistance on the road from your vehicle equals more pressure on the rubber of your tyres. This will lead to more wear and tear on the tyres, quicker. You will need to repair and possibly replace your tyres more often and thus spend more money than necessary. Decrease your trips to the tyre shop and save yourself tons of money in the future as well as the petrol and time it takes to get there.
Not only does proper wheel alignment ensure your vehicle runs accurately but it also ensures the driver's safety behind the wheel and the safety of other drivers on the road. When you have to constantly hold a tight grip on the wheel in order to prevent veering from side to side, driving will become tiresome and can cause fatigue. Improper car alignment also creates a riskier and more stressful experience when driving in harsh weather conditions and slippery roads. Retain your peace of mind knowing that you and your family are safe on the road with a wheel alignment at TyrePlus.
When is the Right Time to Get a Wheel Alignment?
If you ever find yourself veering from one side of the road to the other when the steering wheel is pointing straight forward, then you need to take a trip to TyrePlus for a wheel alignment. Also, if you look at your tyres and you can see that one side is more worn looking than the other. This means that your tyres are suffering from uneven wear and tear from uneven pressure. A good rule of thumb to go by is to get your wheels aligned once every 6,000 miles or so, or about every 6 months. Another reason for a trip to TyrePlus is right after you have hit something significant on the road, such as a large pothole or a big stone. This can put your alignment off balance.
