Wheel alignment refers to the angle and direction that your tyres are set to. It is an important part of vehicle maintenance as poor alignment (also referred to as tracking) can have severely adverse implications to your tyres. Poor alignment will wear tyres down much quicker, it can also cause a pulling or dragging sensation whilst driving and diminish your vehicles handling.
Potholes, hitting a curb and collisions can all be cause for misaligned wheels. If you notice excessive vibration in the steering wheel or a squealing noise at low speeds it is vital that you get the wheel alignment tested.
