Why is wheel alignment so important?

Correct wheel alignment makes sure your car drives and handles safely without unduly stressing the tyres or other suspension components.

Other advantages:

  • less wear of the tyres,
  • less fuel consumption,
  • more safety, particularly in cornering.

How often should I have my wheel alignment checked?

  • when you have new tyres fitted,
  • when some parts in the front or rear suspension have been replaced,
  • when your car has hit something or you notice irregular tyre wear,
  • in normal conditions, once a year.

Our First Stop experts can easily evaluate the need for an alignment.

How do I know if my wheel alignment is out?

  • Steering is less responsive or noisy
  • Steering pulling to the left or right
  • Uneven or rapid wear on one or more tyres
  • Squealing tyres

Wheel Alignment FAQ's

Is wheel alignment the same as wheel balancing?

Wheel alignment and wheel balancing are two different services.

Wheel alignment keeps your vehicle aligned. Wheel balancing ensures weight is distributed equally and tyres are rotating evenly.
