What is Wheel Alignment?
Wheel Alignment - or Tracking - refers to how your tyres sit on the ground and the angle of which they point down the road ahead
Correct wheel alignment ensures that your vehicle's wheel are set to the manufacturers specification, keeping you on the straight and narrow.
Effects of poor wheel alignment
Poor wheel alignment is one of the major causes of premature wear in tyres. Having incorrectly aligned wheels will accelarate the rate your tyres wear. If you are buying new tyres it is very important to have your vehicles wheel alignment checked to get the most out of them in terms of durability, safety and performance.
Wheel alignement problems are usually caused by hitting kerbs, speed bumps, driving through pot-holes in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. At Bold Tyres, we would recommend checking your wheel alignment at least two to three times a year (based on 12000 miles per year usage) to ensure you get the most out of your tyres.
