Recommended by over 5o top car dealers and tyre manufactures, including, Rolls Royce, Jaguar, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Firestone, Kumho, Michelin and many more.

So what are the benefits?   Reduces tyre wear – Improves fuel consumption, cutting running costs – Kinder to the environment - Improved handling which will mean Safer driving.

How do I know if my car wheels are out of alignment?  Look for uneven wear on the front or rear tyres – The car pulls to the left and right – The steering wheel is not straight even when driving in a straight line. Misalignment will make the car less stable when taking emergency or evasive action.

How often should the alignment be checked?  Every 12,000 – 15,000 miles or at least once a year.  It is also recommended when – You hit a kerb or pothole – New tyres are fitted – Steering and suspension components are replaced – If the vehicle has been involved in any form of collision.
