Wheel alignment

Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment is important for many reasons including: driving safely, Fuel efficiency, the environment and tyre efficiency.

The steering and suspension should always be adjusted to the manufacturer’s specifications and this can only be done through measuring all wheels and having full four wheel alignment measurement. 

You should always make sure you have your tyres checked every 12000 - 15000 kilometres or at least once a year.
