Wheel Alignment Cornwall
Hunter 3D Wheel Alignment
Xpress is Cornwall's only Hunter Wheel Alignment Centre. Incorrect wheel alignment can result in rapid tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.
Wheel alignment can be affected by driving against a kerb, hitting a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. Alignment of wheels and tyres to the specification required by your vehicle is an important way to guarantee a smooth ride and to get the most out of your tyres. Other wheel alignment systems offer laser beams that hang over the wheel. These are not as efficient as the accuracy is poor and not suitable for modern vehicles
The direction and angle at which tyres are set are both important. Wheel alignment or 'tracking' involves checking the direction and angle against vehicle manufacturers' specifications. These are often described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.
What is Wheel Alignment?
"Toe" refers to whether the front of the tyres are closer or further apart than the rear of the tyres. Different types of vehicles need different toe settings to allow for the way that wheels pull either towards each other or apart.
"Camber" is the inward or outward tilt of a tyre. The camber is set by the vehicle manufacturer, and can be affected by potholes in the road and may need to be adjusted periodically.
It's worth keeping an eye out for unusual wear on your tyres, such as premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder, which could be caused by an incorrect camber setting.
By having your car properly aligned, you will benefit in a number of ways. Please contact Xpress Garage today to find out more information about our Hunter Wheel Alignment service...
