What is a Wheel Alignment?
Wheel alignment is the process of adjusting the angles of a vehicle’s wheels so that they meet the specifications of the manufacturer. This, in turn, makes the vehicle easier to steer and safer to drive. For many years, we’ve been providing wheel alignments to dealers through Leicester, Market Harborough and the surrounding areas.
How long does a wheel alignment take?
Getting wheel alignment is an effective way to ensure you keep your tyres in good condition and get the best life expectancy out of them as possible. But did you know how long an alignment takes?
Generally, a normal car wheel alignment will take up to an average time between 30 – 60 minutes. This will depend on several factors; the drivetrain system of the car, if there is any damage on the track rod, suspensions, brakes or steering, then it could take significantly longer as various other components may need to be replaced in the process of this.
How to know when you need wheel alignment?
Even though an actual inspection is needed to confirm if your vehicle is misaligned, there are several tell-tale signs that let you know that your wheels are likely to be misaligned and need to be fixed ASAP!
- Drifting or car pulling to one side
- Loose steering wheel
- Steering wheel doesn’t go back in centralised position
- Steering wheel being crooked when you are driving straight
- Noisy vibrating steering
- Pulling to the right or left
- Squealing tyres
- Uneven or rapid tyre wear
