Check Your Wheel Alignment!
Looking after your tyres is essential in your car servicing plan. Damaged Tyres are at a high risk of losing traction in poor weather conditions and can potentially cause a crash, you can never predict the weather, so make sure your tyres fit the required standard for your car.
Damaged tyres may also affect your vehicle’s wheel alignment.
Your vehicle’s wheels will become unaligned over time with the standard wear and tear of the road. Problems such as potholes and kerbs can damage your wheels and position them out of alignment.
The most obvious sign that your wheels need aligning is when your tyres will show signs of wear unevenly. If you notice that your car pulls to the left or right whilst driving this can also be an early indication that your wheels have become unaligned.
