wheel alignment

Wheel alignment is a crucial part of any vehicle maintenance schedule. At Terry Elsey Tyres, we perform wheel alignment with utmost precision and rapidity with the most advanced equipment available today.

A recent survey has disclosed that 8 out of every 10 cars have wheel alignment concerns. We have found that the problem is amplified by the lack of awareness about the issue on the part of our customers. At our garage, we try to educate our customers about the importance of proper wheel alignment in Malton and how to spot misaligned wheels.

Wheel alignment basics

Wheel alignment is an adjustment to the suspension system aimed at correcting the wheel’s angular direction. A perfectly aligned wheel should be perpendicular to the road and at a right angle to the axle. That’s how every car’s wheels are adjusted when they are new. Unfortunately, the constant pressure and adverse road conditions throw this alignment out of sync.

Misaligned wheels are one of the primary safety hazards that your car can face. If the wheels are not facing straight ahead, your steering capabilities will be severely curtailed, and the car will pull to one side. It can be highly inconvenient, especially in the heavy Malton traffic.

Therefore, at Terry Elsey Tyres, we give utmost importance to wheel alignment. We have brought cutting-edge machinery to execute this crucial and complex task. While most garages in the area still use conventional wheel alignment machines, we perform it with the revolutionary Supertracker Alignment System.

However, before we do that, you should familiarise yourself with how your wheels can be misaligned so that you can bring it to our wheel alignment garage in Malton as soon as you notice the problem.

How to diagnose misaligned wheels

Misaligned wheels can be gauged by the following 3 parameters:

  • Camber
  • Caster
  • Toe

Camber is the angle of the wheel when viewed from the front. If the wheel is angled inwards towards the car, our mechanics call it negative camber. Conversely, if it’s angled outwards, we call it positive camber.

Caster is the angle of the pivot point of the wheel in relation to the vehicle while Toe is the angle of the wheels when viewed from the top. The proper maintenance of all three angles is important for the best steering response of your car.
