What is Wheel Alignment?

Wheel alignment is the process of ensuring your vehicle’s wheels
set to the optimum position, as per the car manufacturer’s specifications. Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.The Hunter system uses a series of high-definition imaging sensors which measure 14 primary alignment angles on your vehicle.  These include Camber, Caster, Thrust Line, Toe in and Toe out. The position and orientation of your wheels are compared against the vehicle manufacturers data for your vehicle, ensuring the vehicle is set up perfectly for you to drive.

Is Wheel Alignment important?

Yes - it's important to get your wheel alignment checked annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres. Regular wheel alignment can prolong the life of tyres by up to 12,000 miles and increase fuel efficiency (due to the reduced rolling resistance with the road). Not only will this save you pounds at the pump and when replacing tyres, but will actively improve the handling of the vehicle.

Catching wheel alignment problems early is importantWhat can cause Wheel Alignment Problems?

Wheel alignment problems can be caused by hitting a kerb, driving into a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. Keep an eye out for unusual wear on your tyres or any change in steering following impacts - this may inlcude signs of premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder, both of which can be a sign of incorrect alignment.

Does putting it off put me at risk?

While wheel alignment is not likely to directly cause an accident, it will affect steering, handling, suspension, fuel economy and may cause further issues if left to get worse.
