Common symptoms of misalignments
- Tread is partially sharp and partially smooth, out of uneven tyre wear due to improper alignment of the toe.
- Another type of uneven tyre wear is camber wear caused by positive or negative camber. The tread is more damaged inside or outside than in the centre.
- Misaligned wheels also strain the tread to cause wear that resembles saw teeth. It is a sign of underinflation and lack of rotation.
- Car wheel steering going off-centred can often be due to inaccurate wheel alignment.
- Misaligned wheels often squeal while taking turns or accelerating.
What causes misaligned wheels?
Three major causes of misaligned wheels comprise:
Sudden heavy blow: It is common for the wheels to go off-centre due to a road accident, hitting a curb or bumping into something like a pothole.
Height modification: Suspension works at a particular height. Adjusting vehicle height to re-style a car without correcting the suspension can result in misaligned wheels.
Wearing vehicular components: With constant use, components like suspension springs can wear out over time, resulting in wheel misalignment.
Not just tyre wear, other areas of the car which suffer due to a misaligned wheel are braking distance, fuel consumption and drive quality. Car experts at Mr Tyres Andover understand the criticality of misaligned wheels. Hence, we offer excellent wheel alignment service and other car repairs under one roof.
How do we perform Wheel Alignment?
It comprises the following five steps:
Step 1: Our experts thoroughly inspect tyre pressure and the condition of your car.
Step 2: They place your car on the wheel alignment machine to gauge sensors.
Step 3: Next, they scrutinise the three wheel angles- caster, camber and toe.
Step 4: Once done, our technicians equate the wheel angles per manufacturer specifications.
Step 5: Lastly, they perform a road test to assure accuracy.
