Wheel Alignment & Balancing

A proper alignment means less wear and tear on steering/suspension components. When a vehicle’s alignment is out of manufacturer recommended specification, it can cause the vehicle to drift/float or pull in different directions. This can prove to be unsafe for you and the vehicle.

Improper wheel alignment creates excessive friction on the road surface leading to uneven tire wear and unnecessary stress on steering/suspension components. This excessive drag will also reduce fuel economy.

We have an on site, state of the art Fasep Machine.

With this piece of machinery, we are capable of a simple front end adjustment or a complete full four wheel alignment. We always recommend an alignment when new tyres are fitted, to ensure proper performance of your purchase. If one of our techs feels that your vehicles alignment is not within its proper specification we will alert you of this and explain the necessary steps required, to get you safely back on the road.

Some vehicles are not equipped from the factory with the necessary hardware to make all the required alignment adjustments.

 
In these instances, modified bolts and/or eccentric bolt kits/spacers need to be installed before proper adjustments can be made. Some repair shops will not take the extra time needed to install these kits and therefore will not complete all the required adjustments. This results in improper alignment & premature tire wear. Do not be fooled by the “Advertised Low-price Alignment” of most tyre shops. If they are not informing you of any additional adjustments, ask to see a printout of the vehicle specifications & current adjustments.

Service kits usually require additional labor to install them and the cost of each kit varies per vehicle. One of our service professionals will be able to answer all of your questions at the time of your appointment.

Wheel balancing

 
Rotating tyres every 10,000km will keep your tyres wearing properly. Front tyres always wear a little faster than rears because you are constantly turning them which causes more stress/wear. Rotating these tyres to the rear, and moving the rears to the front will keep all fours of your tyres wearing evenly.

Tyre balancing is done in house with our state of the art wheel balancer. Rims and tyres need to be evenly balanced due to the fact that they are a completely equal circle spinning in one constant direction. If the weight is off on any given part of the rotating rim and tire it can cause a wobble/vibration while driving. Most commonly this happens at certain speeds where the wheel starts to shake from having unbalanced weight in motion. Sometimes this will occur at one speed say 90km/h, and then fade once you reach 100km/h. It causes a discomfort for the vehicle occupants, but can also cause wear on steering/suspension components since it is stressing the parts that the actual wheel bolts on to. Wheel balance can be thrown off by many variants including: Tyre Wear, Rust/Corrosion, Pot Holes, Weights Coming Off. Having a set of four tyres balanced while they are off the vehicle for a rotation is never a bad idea.
