Driving over potholes, speed bumps or kerbs can knock your wheel alignment out. This can lead to uneven wear on your tyres and it could feel like you car is 'pulling' to one side. This in turn can lead to an increase in fuel consumption and premature wear on your tyres.
ATS Euromaster offer a FREE Wheel Alignment check to make sure your tyres are running on the correct path.
Correct wheel alignment ensures that the tyres are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other and that on a level straight road your car will travel in a true straight line.
Wheel alignment or tracking is one of the key tyre maintenance factors to ensure optimum performance, even tyre wear and a maximised tyre life.
An accurate alignment also provides safe and predictable vehicle control and road holding alongside a smoother and more comfortable ride.
The process of wheel alignment encompasses THREE elements which require monitoring and adjustment to ensure correct alignment on your vehicle.
Camber misalignment may not be adjustable on all cars. If the camber alignment is out on these vehicles it may indicate that something is worn or bent and should be inspected more closely
Caster Alignment Caster alignment is the angle of the steering pivot when viewed from the side of the vehicle
ATS Euromaster recommend that you get your alignment checked regularly and every time after any violent shocks to your tyres, for example hitting a kerb, pothole or speed bump at speed.
