Wheel Alignment

Does your car tend to drift off to one side on a straight road? Have you noticed your vehicle vibrating or making unusual squeaking noises? These anomalies may indicate that your wheels need to be realigned. Fortunately, the team at Canterbury Tyre & Mag Supamart can provide wheel alignment services for vehicles of all makes and models.

Our highly trained specialists can correct wheel alignment issues by adjusting their angles. We have access to a machine that utilises laser guided measurements to make sure the wheels are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground. This not only stops the vehicle from veering to one side of the road, but also increases the life span of wheels over time.

How Wheel Alignment Can Affect Your Vehicle

The performance of your car can be affected by many different factors, but the alignment of your wheels play a particularly important role. Misaligned wheels reduce fuel efficiency, speed up wear and tear, interfere with handling, compromise manoeuvrability, influence steering response, and more. All of these factors make your vehicle less safe to drive and more prone to accidents.

Before aligning your wheels, we conduct a thorough inspection of tyres, suspension and steering components to stop changes from happening shortly after. After aligning your wheels, we take your vehicle for a test drive to ensure everything is functioning as it should. We’ll know if the wheels have been realigned or if additional work is still required.

When to Get Your Wheels Aligned

People often ask when and how often they should get their wheels aligned. We suggest getting them checked every six months or 10,000km to prevent excessive degradation. We also recommend an alignment if your car has recently hit a pothole, as there’s a strong possibility the suspension and steering has been damaged.
