Frequently Asked Questions:
Wheel alignment, or tracking, is the process by which all four wheels are aligned according to manufacturers specs. This helps the car to drive “true”, preserve the tyres and conserve fuel.
If you find your car pulling to the right or left even though you’re on a perfectly flat road, with no crosswinds, or you find your steering is a bit shaky, you might need wheel alignment. You should make sure your tyre pressures are optimal first, to eliminate this issue.
Another symptom of unaligned tyres is if they squeal when you’re making turns – they don’t have to be sharp turns.
Noticeably uneven wear on your tyres is also a sign that you need a front wheel alignment service.
This process needs special equipment. Each wheel has a clamp placed on it and, with the steering wheel dead centre, a computer “reads” the reflections from each clamp to work out how the wheels need to be adjusted to be “true”
Most garages can perform a wheel alignment in 30 minutes.
Front wheels-only can cost around £25 and all four wheels is around £40. Lots of garages include wheel alignment as part of a full service.

More about wheel alignment
If your front wheels are unaligned, they’re not pointing in the same direction and so your car can become harder to steer and other problems may develop.
Considering that front wheel alignment is cheap and doesn’t take long, but it can save wear and tear on your steering and suspension, as well as make your fuel consumption more efficient.
Your front wheels are more likely to be pushed out of alignment because they’re more likely to hit curbs and they hit speedbumps first, which involves more impact.
How to avoid wheel alignment issues
While misalignment will creep in gradually no matter what you do, you can slow this process down by:
- Avoiding potholes and driving into curbs at speed
- Not driving with excessive loads in or on your car
- Maintaining the correct tyre pressure, and
- Driving sensibly.
Driving safely is always vital
Of course, you should be driving safely for the protection of you, your passengers and other road users, but good driving habits also help to maintain the condition of your car. By “promoting” misalignment, you’re shortening the life of your tyres, as well as potentially causing damage to your steering and suspension.
