At PMC of Pinner we are capable of handling the most robust steering systems on today’s modern cars, as we have the most advanced technology in wheel alignment.
Driving against a kerb, hitting a pothole in the road or excessive wear to steering or suspension components can affect wheel alignment. It is important to have the correct alignment of wheels according to your vehicles’ manufacturer’s specifications, to ensure a safe and smooth ride. Wheel alignment or ‘tracking’ involves checking the direction and angle against these specifications. These are often described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber. “Camber” is the inward or outward tilt of a tyre. The camber is set by the vehicle manufacturer, and can be affected by potholes in the road and may need to be adjusted periodically.
If you notice unusual wear on your tyres, such as premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder, get this looked at as soon as you can as this could be caused by an incorrect camber setting.
There are numerous advantages to having precise four wheel alignment. For example:
- improve the wear of your tyres
- increase their lifespan and performance
- save on fuel consumption
- improved handling
- improve safety by reducing steering and stability problems
