Tyres and Wheel Alignment

  • Barrowford MOT Centre

What is wheel alignment?

Wheel alignment (or tracking) is an important part of car maintenance. It refers to the angle and direction at which your tyres are set.

Wheel alignment involves adjusting the angles of the wheels to the recommended position as outlined in your vehicle’s manufacturer specification. Hitting kerbs or driving at speed through a pothole can result in wheel misalignment. Poorly aligned tyres can affect road holding, increase fuel consumption and decrease the life of your tyres, so it’s really important to check your wheels regularly.

How do I know if my wheels need to be aligned?

Watch out for these classic signs of wheel misalignment:

  • Uneven tyre wear
  • Drag or pulling
  • Steering wheel vibration
