What is a wheel alignment?
When we align your tyres, we measure, analyse, and adjust your vehicle’s steering and suspension angles to make
sure your wheels are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Our tyre technicians use state
of the art aligning equipment to give you the most precise alignment possible.
There are five factors involved in determining the correct alignment:
Tyre & wheel balance
What is a wheel balance?
One of the easiest ways to tell when something is not right with your tyres is from behind the wheel. Most of us would have encountered steering wheel wobble or vibration when we are driving at high speeds, and this can mean that a wheel is out of balance.
Your car contains tiny, but important, weights to counterbalance the heaviest part of the tyre and wheel assembly. If these weights become loose, the wheel will wobble — and the faster you are travelling, the more the wobbling intensifies. This wobbling increases steering component and tyre wear, and is potentially unsafe.
Your Bridgestone Select tyre technician can easily fix the problem. The system allows your mechanic to attach the wheel to a balancer which replicates the exact position the wheel would be in when attached to your vehicle. This way the imbalance can easily be identified and corrected.
