Your car’s wheel alignment refers to the angle and direction at which the tyres are set, which plays a vital role in providing optimum vehicle handling and to maximise the life of the tyres. Incorrect alignment can result in poor road handling, irregular tyre wear and an increase in fuel consumption, all problems that can be easily rectified with a quick and easy alignment test.
Here at The TyreShop we have invested in the very latest state-of-the-art Wheel alignment equipment by Hunter the industry leader in alignment and we are the ONLY tyre shop in Europe to have 2 Hunter Wheel Alignment ramps! Should you have an issue with your vehicle’s alignment, rest assured our expert technicians will be able to diagnose and and reset your alignment as per the manufacturer’s original specifications.
