Do I need a wheel alignment and tyre balance when I have new tyres fitted?
If your old tyres were wearing unevenly it’s recommended to have a wheel alignment. This will ensure you do not prematurely wear the new tyres.
What is the difference between a wheel alignment and wheel balancing?
A wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels whereas a wheel balance adjusts the weight of the tyre and wheel.
How do I know if my car needs a wheel alignment?
Often your car will pull to one side, your steering wheel will be off-centre or your tyres will squeal.
What are the signs of unbalanced wheels?
You may notice uneven or accelerated tyre wear, impaired traction or steering control and/or increased fuel consumption.
