What is Wheel Alignment?

Wheel alignment is a process by which small adjustments are made to ensure all four wheels on your car are aligned correctly in relation to one another, meaning they are perpendicular to the ground and sitting parallel to one another. Your car's manual should contain information on the correct alignment angles for your vehicle.

What is Wheel Balancing?

Wheel balancing is a process undertaken to balance the weight of a tyre and wheel assembly so that it travels evenly.
Generally confused with wheel alignment, wheel balancing's purpose is to ensure a smooth ride by correctly adjusting the tyre and wheel weight distribution.
The tyre and wheel combination can have slightly more or less weight in one area, and vibrations are caused by the slightest difference in weight distribution, so it’s essential to have your wheels balanced systematically.

Do you have to get a Wheel Alignment when you get new tyres?

A wheel alignment isn't necessary when you have new tires installed, but it's a really good idea. An alignment ensures that all four tires are correctly angled with each other and the road for safe and comfortable driving.

How often do I require a Wheel Alignment?

For virtually all vehicles, it’s necessary to get your wheels aligned periodically. Most car experts recommend scheduling an alignment every other oil change, or approximately every 10,000 kms. Since alignment needs can vary depending on your vehicle type, typical road conditions, and tire style, however, refer to your owner’s manual or consult with your mechanic to learn what’s best for your car.
