Why You Should Have Your Wheel Alignment Checked
Wheel alignment is one of the major reasons a vehicle will wear tyres and also suffer with bad fuel economy. It is estimated that 1 in 3 cars are driving with the incorrect wheel alignment on the roads in the UK! Swansea Tyre, Clutch & MOT Centre have the very latest Hunter Hawkeye Laser Alignment Equipment. You are able to sit in our comfortable reception area and watch your vehicle have its tracking/wheel alignment adjusted on our big screen. The process only takes a few minutes but can save you hundreds of pounds in badly worn tyres.
Having bad wheel alignment is also very dangerous as your vehicle will not have the correct grip on the road, especially in wet or slippery conditions.
Our Technicians are fully trained and qualified to adjust your wheel alignment. There are many forms of wheel alignment (commonly known as tracking). The most common adjustment is TOE this is the directional pull of the wheel and the most common to be out of adjustment. This is normally due to kerb parking, constant clipping of kerbs can damage the steering arms and knock the TOE out of alignment. This will normally cause the car to pull to the left or the right and can also wear your tyres on the outer or inner edges.
Camber adjustment is the horizontal adjustment of the wheels. This is where the vehicle will run on the outer edge of the tyre (positive camber) or the inner edge of the tyre (negative camber) most lowered vehicles will experience negative camber which will normally wear tyres on the inner edge.
We are able to adjust both TOE & CAMBER on our wheel alignment machine. We can also adjust THRUST ANGLE. This is the forward motion of the steering alignment (imagine looking at the wheel and thrust would be the way a pendulum swings).
Our equipment is the very best money can buy and we are able to work with “custom” set up vehicles too! Should you feel your car pulling to the left or the right or experience worn tyres then we can fix this issue in no time at all!
