Wheel alignment, or tracking, is the process of ensuring a vehicle’s wheels are set to the optimum position, as per the car manufacturer’s specifications. Checking wheel alignment annually can prolong the life of tyres by up to 12,000 miles, as well as improving overall fuel efficiency by reducing the rolling resistance of the tyres.
Incorrect alignment can result in uneven tyre wear and affect the vehicle’s handling, which could compromise safety, particularly in adverse weather conditions. This can happen as a result of driving through potholes or hitting a kerb.
BRC offers four-wheel alignment using laser sensors, which measure all primary tyre angles on your vehicle. These include Camber, Caster, Thrust Line, Toe-in and Toe-out. The position and orientation of the wheels are compared against the vehicle manufacturers’ data, ensuring the vehicle is set up perfectly.
Customers receive a detailed print-out, showing the vehicle’s wheel alignment both ‘BEFORE’ and ‘AFTER’.
