Wheel alignment – what is this and how would I know this needs looking at?
In a nut shell wheel alignment ensures your wheels run parallel with one another! The cause of mis-aligned wheels is mainly down to road conditions, pot holes and speed bumps. But general wear and tear is also a factor.
A couple of popular indications of mis-aligned wheels.
- Cause wear on the inside or outside of your tyres, preventing you from getting 100% wear from your tyres.
- Cause your vehicle to drift to the right or left when driving in a straight line.
Having said the above, this can also be caused by warn bushed on the tie rods & control arms.
