Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment is equal and proper distribution of car’s weight over the tyre.

We must check wheel alignment every 5000 kms or 6 months or when the alignment setting are changed.

a) When suspension work is done.
b) When suspension parts are worn out.
c) When the suspension gets a jolt, which is beyond its capacity to handle (every car will have different capacity to handle jolts and loads)

What will happen if alignment settings changes, and we do not check wheel alignment?
The weight of the car will not be correctly distributed on the tyres, which will result in uneven wear of the tyres.

Sometimes tyre wear happens or seem to happen even after checking wheel alignment, why?
a) Always remember wheel alignment settings can change any time, if the suspension is jolted beyond the capacity of the car to handle. If it happens, please check wheel alignment again. Otherwise improper tyre wear will happen. This is why free checkups are offered by alignment centres.
b) Always remember rubber once lost is lost for ever. Once irregular wear happen in a tyre, it will continue to be irregular worn through that tyre’s life.

There is a common misconception that Alloy wheels bring down the fuel efficiency of your car, this is a far from reality. An alloy wheel is a lot lighter than your ordinary steel rim. Since it is lighter it has the following advantages: -

3. It cools the tyres, the break pad and the drive shaft assembly more efficiently.
4. Increases your comfort.
