2 Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment is an important part of car care. It determines the angle and direction of which your tyres are set.

Your wheels need to be aligned to the recommended position as outlined in your vehicle's manufacturer specification.

Hitting kerbs or driving at speed through a pothole can result in wheel misalignment. Tyres which are poorly aligned may quickly deteriorate due to wear and tear.

Signs that you need to get your wheel alignments checked:

  1. Uneven tread wear.
  2. Vehicle pulling to the left or right.
  3. Your steering wheel is off centre when driving straight.
  4. Steering wheel vibration.

Not sure if your vehicle requires alignment, call into Grande Tyres Ltd in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and speak to one of our trained technicians

Questions and Answers

Do I need a 2- or 4-wheel alignment?

A 2-wheel alignment is also known as a front-end alignment. As suggested in its name, a Grande Tyres Ltd technician performs alignment on only the front wheels. This may include a camber, toe, and caster adjustment. Your car will typically require a 4-wheel alignment if it's an all-wheel-drive model with independent suspensions.

How do you check wheel alignment?

If you've noticed one or more of these indicators, you should have your alignment checked by a licensed service technician immediately.

  1. Uneven tread wear.
  2. Vehicle pulling to the left or right.
  3. Your steering wheel is off centre when driving straight.
  4. Steering wheel vibration.

What causes tyre misalignment?

There are three main causes of wheel misalignment, these are:

  • The sudden jarring or heavy impact caused by hitting something, such as a pothole, bumping a curb, or a road accident.
  • Worn parts caused by wear and tear
  • Height modification, when the suspension has not been changed to suit.

Can a pothole cause misalignment?

Yes, potholes, minor collisions can throw off wheel alignment. Hitting a large pothole head-on may cause more than a loud thud. It could throw off your car's wheel alignment. Tyres that are abnormally worn could be a sign your car's alignment is off track.
