Contact us today to book your vehicle in for a wheel alignment service in Toowoomba.
Your wheel can come out of alignment for many reasons. You could have hit a large pothole or bumped into the gutter when parking. A typical area that needs adjustment is the toe angle, which is the angle your wheel points. The ideal toe angle should be parallel with the other wheels to keep your car from veering when you’re travelling straight.
What’s important is not how they were misaligned, but if they are misaligned; if you experience shuddering or vibrating from your steering wheel, or worse, your vehicle pulls to one side of the road when you keep your steering wheel straight, your wheels are misaligned and we recommend you get to us at your earliest convenience to keep your car safe. Please give us a call on 07 4632 5566 or 07 4659 8699 if you’re worried about the state of your wheel alignment.
Why Do I Need a Wheel Alignment?
Failing to get your wheels aligned when they are out of alignment will cause your tyres to wear in uneven patterns, making your vehicle less safe to drive due to deteriorated handling, as well as forcing you to buy new tyres prematurely. When we perform our logbook and general servicing, we perform wheel alignment checks to see if your wheels need adjustment.
Balancing vs Alignment:
You might have also heard of wheel balancing. Wheel balancing is where we check that the wheel rotates evenly (i.e. doesn’t shake side to side) when travelling. Sometimes weights are fitted to counter-act any imbalances. Wheel balancing is free when we fit new tyres, but if you experience your steering wheel shake, you may need to consider getting your wheels re-balanced.
We use cutting-edge equipment to accurately measure your wheel alignment before adjusting, and our work is triple-checked to make sure you roll out on safe alignment that isn’t going to prematurely wear your tyres.
