Wheel Alignment – Don’t Neglect it

Blue Tyres - Kara

It’s not uncommon to have misaligned wheels, but it’s easy to check, and quick to fix. Left unattended it could be costing you money, and affecting the performance of your car.

Wheel misalignment is often gradual and occurs over time from hitting potholes, kerbs, driving on uneven surfaces, as well as general wear and tear. You may not notice the gradual shift over time.

What are the signs of wheel misalignment?

  • Uneven wear on your tyres
  • Off centre steering wheel when driving straight
  • Vehicle pulling off the left or right

Misalignment can affect the performance of your car, but it also costs you money. Instead of even wear over the tyre and a normal lifespan, wear is focused onto a smaller part of the tyre, shortening its lifespan.

Wheel realignment is a relatively cheap and easy to fix, ranging from $50 – $150+ (depending on the size of the car and the number of affected tyres), immediately increases the lifespan of your tyres – and it’s a lot cheaper than getting another set!

Look out for the signs for misalignment, and the more you delay, the more it could be costing you money.
