Wheel Alignments

Is your vehicle pulling to the side when driving? Are one of your tires worn out more than the others? If so, this means you need a wheel alignment on your vehicle. It is recommended that you get a wheel alignment every 6 months or every 10,000km. Getting regular wheel alignments can help keep your vehicle in proper working order and avoid costly repairs.

You may need an alignment if:

  • In order to drive straight you need to hold onto the steering wheel
  • You’ve just changed the tires
  • You’ve been involved in a collision
  • If you have had any steering or suspension parts changed like tie rods, control arms, bushings, etc.
  • You’ve driven the first 3,000km in a new car

A typical wheel alignment takes around 30 minutes. During that time our service technician will inspect the pressure of your tires, your vehicle’s steering and suspension.

Wheels are adjusted through their three main parts:

  • The castor
  • The camber
  • The toe

Each part is returned to its original manufacturers specifications during the service.

Checking Sensors

We will also check the steering angle sensor – which lots of late model vehicle have. This sensor can tell where you are holding the steering wheel in relation to the wheels. The sensor works with the stability control systems, and needs to be reset after a wheel alignment is completed.

Did you know?

  • That most alignment work does not require new parts? Although all tires should be the same size, style and be properly inflated
  • Front wheel drive cars can always get four-wheel alignment services while rear-wheel drive vehicles typically can’t be adjusted
