Wheel alignment service using

Any accident you are involved in or issues you have with your suspension can cause your wheels to be aligned incorrectly. This can lead to your steering feeling off and cause uneven tyre wear. To avoid these further costs down the line, we recommend having wheel alignment carried out by our technicians. The equipment we have available to us in our Biggin Hill workshop allows us to carry out front and rear wheel tracking and alignment, the Supertracker we use guarantees complete accuracy. Any time you have new tyres fitted, it is recommended that you have your wheels realigned so you can get maximum use out of this new set.

How to tell when your

When assessing your vehicle for whether it requires wheel realignment, there are a few indicators that you should look for, these include:

If you notice one or two of your tyres are significantly more worn than the others, this may be a sign that your vehicle is leaning to one side and wheel realignment is required.

Whilst driving straight, if your steering wheel is crooked or your steering is pulling to one side, this is a clear signal that the angles of your wheels are not quite right and need adjusting.

If your steering wheel or the car itself is shaking when driving, you may feel some resistance when steering and this is often caused by wheels that are not properly aligned.

As well as tyre wear, your tyres may make a loud squealing sound, which is another indicator that your vehicle is leaning to one side, and you should arrange realignment as soon as possible.

Low cost ADAS

The majority of modern vehicles utilise the latest radar and camera technology for emergency braking, traffic recognition or when parking. When having your wheels realigned, it is important to have all of this technology properly recalibrated to ensure they function correctly. Our technicians can carry out ADAS calibration in addition to our wheel alignment services, in order to ensure the safety of vehicle occupants and other road users. When booking in your vehicle for wheel realignment with us, it would be worthwhile to have your ADAS reset at the same time. This is an important step to ensuring all the technology your vehicle is equipped with is operating correctly.

Replace your tyres after

One of the most common results of wheel misalignment is uneven wear on your tyres. If your wheels have been incorrectly aligned for a long period of time and you notice your steering is pulling to one side, the impact on your tyres can be significant. Some tyres may be more worn than others and there may even be bald spots. If this turns out to be the case, we can carry out car rear wheel alignment and front alignment whilst also fitting new tyres so that your vehicle leaves our garage in top working condition.
