What is wheel alignment?

  • Wheel alignment dictates the angles at which your car makes contact with the road. For the best performance, you ideally want to have as much of the surface area of the tyre to be in contact with the ground as possible. When our technicians have compleated this process will save your tyres from wearing. Wheel alignment will also see fuel consumption drop dramatically.

Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.

Wheel alignment problems can be caused by a number of factoring issues including parts been changed such as suspension, track rod ends or even anti-roll bar linkages. this can be caused by mechanical wear or by accidental damage such as hitting a kerb, driving into a pothole in the road or by excessive wear on steering or suspension components. It is important to get your wheel alignment checked annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres.

Checking your wheel alignment on your car, van or Truck regularly can prolong the life of your tyres by up to 12, 000 miles and increase fuel efficiency due to the reduced rolling resistance with the road.

Keep an eye out for unusual wear on your tyres, such as premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder, which could be a sign of incorrect alignment. The FastFit Centre offers a free tyre check at our Merseyside service centre. So stop in if you need any help.

Alignment Terminology

  • Wheel alignment involves checking the direction and angle of the wheels. The misalignment positions are often described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.

Toe Alignment

  • Toe is measured how much a pair of wheels are turned in or out from a straight-ahead position.
  • Toe alignment can be carried out on the front wheels alone or the front and rear wheels.
  • You will feel your car ‘pulling’ to one side if the toe alignment is out.

Toe In

Toe Out

Wheel Alignment Merseyside Vehicle Tracking

"Toe" refers to whether the front of the tyre is closer or further apart than the rear of the tyre. Different types of vehicles need different toe settings to allow for the way that wheels pull either towards each other or apart. Incorrect toe alignment can result in your car or van steering to one side.

Negative Camber

Positive Camber

"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.

Camber Alignment

  • Toe is measured how much a pair of wheels are turned in or out from a straight-ahead position.
  • Toe alignment can be carried out on the front wheels alone or the front and rear wheels.
  • You will feel your car ‘pulling’ to one side if the toe alignment is out.

Caster Alignment

  • Caster alignment is the angle of the steering pivot when viewed from the side of the vehicle
  • Caster has little effect on tyre wear, but it affects steering stability
  • If the caster is out of adjustment, it can cause problems in straight line tracking
  • If the caster is equal but too negative, the steering will be light and the vehicle will wander
  • If the caster is equal but too positive, the steering will be heavy and the steering wheel may kick when going over a bump
