Tyre Care, Alignment

Vehicle suspension misalignment can result in rapid, irregular tyre wear, which is bad news for your pocket and can affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.

Vehicle suspension misalignment can result in rapid, irregular tyre wear, which is bad news for your pocket and can affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.

  • If your suspension is misaligned by 4mm (just 2mm per wheel), then for every mile you travel the tyre is being forced sideways by 8.4m (24ft) on a car with 15” wheels.
  • With 13” or 14” wheels, 2mm misalignment per wheel will result in even greater tyre scrub. No wonder incorrect alignment results in excessive shoulder wear. Watch out for this when you visually check your tyres.
