At Alignment Centre, our professional technicians are experts in wheel alignment. This can be offered to both cars and vans. Often, problems occur on a vehicle’s front two wheels as these are the two which control the direction of the vehicle when driving. However, it’s not uncommon for all four wheels to become misaligned. This can be caused by general wear and tear of the vehicle, or uneven surfaces such as potholes and speed bumps.
At our garage in Greenford, we’re fully equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology which will allow us to provide you with an effective and reliable wheel alignment service. These services are carried out by highly-qualified professional technicians with a lot of experience in the industry. It’s important to ensure that you get your vehicle’s wheel alignment inspected at regular intervals as it could have a negative effect on your vehicle in the long run. It’s a big part of vehicle maintenance, and having this inspection will ensure that all four wheels are able to drive your vehicle properly with no issues. If not seen to, it can cause tyre damage, tyre wear and shorten the overall life of your tyres.
Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tire wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tire life.
Gas mileage increases as rolling resistance decreases. Total alignment sets all four wheel parallel which, along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance.
Does your car pull to one side? Does the steering wheel vibrate? Do you constantly have to move the steering wheel to keep your car traveling straight ahead? Many handling problems can be corrected by total alignment. With all the system components aligned properly, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a smoother ride.
A suspension system inspection is part of our alignment procedure. This allows us to spot worn parts before they cause costly problems.
If you’re unsure whether your vehicle needs a wheel alignment service, there are a few ways in which you can inspect for yourself:
Q. How important is wheel alignment?
A. Think of it this way. Research indicates that the average car is driven about 12,000 miles per year. A car with toe alignment just 0.34 degrees (Just 0.17 inches) out of specification has dragged its tires sideways for more than 68 miles by the end of the year!
Q. What are the “symptoms” of a car that’s out of alignment?
A. Have your car checked if you notice:
Q. How often should I have my car aligned?
A. Follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation noted in your owner’s manual. But, as a general rule, have your vehicle’s tires checked every 10,000 miles or at least once a year.
Not having your wheels properly aligned can also put a strain on other parts of your vehicle. Things such as your vehicle’s suspension, steering and many other components can be affected.
