Tread and tyre pressure are the two critical factors to tyre safety. Tyre tread will help your vehicle to grip the road surface when braking and cornering.
Driving on under-inflated tyres will use more fuel, while driving on over-inflated tyres can affect vehicle handling and overall wear.
Tyres are a routine check with all vehicle services.
Did you know
Legally, treads must be at least 1.5mm deep across three quarters of the tread pattern around the entire tyre. However, if you have tread depth indicators in the principal grooves then you must have at least 1.5mm tread depth in these areas.
Wheel Alignments are important to the handling of your car; they also improve fuel economy and extend tyre life.
What We Do
We adjust all four wheels so they are parallel to each other. This is done using the latest laser technology which produces a sensor zone around the vehicle and highlights any steering or suspension faults.
The results include:
- Improved Driver Safety
- Improved Handling
- Increased Fuel Efficiency
- Extended Suspension Life
- Minimized Tyre Wear
- Improved Steering.
Why We Do It
Some common problems encountered when your wheels are out of alignment include:
- Wheel is difficult to turn
- Pulls to the left or right
Tyre wear shows signs of:
- Uneven wear on one side
- Flat Spotting
