WHEEL ALIGNMENT SERVICES IN NORTH SHIELDS

If your wheels are out of alignment - even slightly - you could experience your vehicle pulling to the left or right while you are driving straight ahead. Misalignment of your wheels can also result in uneven wearing of your tyres, loss in traction, increased fuel consumption and could indicate a more serious fault. Fortunately wheel alignment problems are usually straightforward to correct.

 

WHAT'S INVOLVED IN WHEEL ALIGNMENT?

Wheel alignment involves checking the precise toe angle of your tyres.

 

The "toe" refers to the degree at which the front of the tyre points inwards or outwards compared to the rear of the tyre.

 

The toe is extremely exact and will be specific to the exact make and model of your vehicle.
