The answer is yes, it could well be. In an ideal world car steering and wheels would stay aligned forever, but in the real world this is rarely the case. Over time parts of your suspension can wear and cause the factory alignment of your wheels to come out of true. This can also be caused by hitting curbs or potholes.
Why should I worry? We hear you ask. Well, when your wheels become misaligned, even by a tiny amount, it can cause the tyres to wear unevenly. The most common indication of this is when the tyres wear down one edge. If you leave this unchecked, the tyre will continue to wear in that place until it is below the legal limit, usually leaving the rest of the tyre well above the legal limit. This is what costs you money. You either have to replace the tyre, or you get stopped by the police and risk a possible fine of £1000 and 3 points on your licence PER TYRE. This is an extreme scenario, but it can and has happened. Getting your laser wheel alignment checked by Staysure Tyres in Wokingham means that we spot any potential problems before major tyre wear occurs, fix the alignment issue and ultimately save you money. Of course this means you buy less tyres from us! But customer satisfaction and loyalty is important to Staysure, and a happy customer who saves money, is one who comes back in the future.
At Staysure, we don’t just offer tracking alignment (the angle of your front wheels) we offer 4 wheel alignment. Modern cars have complicated suspension systems with several adjustment points which allows us to keep all 4 wheels pointing the way they should.
We use a John Bean system, which uses lasers to read the angles of your wheels. It then tells us if any adjustments need to be made and where. We’ve invested a lot of money in this equipment, and it is widely regarded in the automotive industry as the best.
So next time you get new tyres, ask us about checking your laser wheel alignment Wokingham. We’ll be more than happy to help.
