How to know if you need a wheel realignment

If your wheel tracking is misaligned, you could notice a change in the handling and safety of your vehicle, which could lead to uneven tyre wear.

However, it’s hard to notice any change in wheel tracking - you will almost certainly not detect it through driving alone. A small amount of misalignment (1mm) means your tyre is being forced sideways approximately 1 metre every mile you travel. This is why it is essential to have your car’s wheel alignment regularly checked.

Find out more about our comprehensive FREE wheel alignment check or book an appointment at your local Formula One Autocentre. You can also add a FREE wheel alignment check to your tyre order in the basket.

Why is wheel alignment important?

Incorrect wheel alignment can cause uneven tyre wear and can affect your vehicle’s handling and safety. Wheel alignment issues can be caused by common occurrences like hitting a kerb or pothole, or general wear and tear on the steering or suspension components.

It is critical to have your wheel alignment checked once a year to ensure you get the most out of your tyres.

Could your wheel tracking be misaligned?

It is recommended that a car’s wheels should have a wheel alignment check once every 10,000 miles or at least once a year, depending on how often the vehicle is driven. Having your car wheel alignment checked at Formula One Autocentres will have many benefits to your overall driving experience and annual expenditure, including:

  • Gain a more secure handling and grip of your car by eliminating drifts to the left/right.
  • Improve tyre longevity through a reduction of tyre wear and friction.
  • Improve fuel economy due to the decreased tyre resistance that results from misaligned tyres.

  • Louis and his team are a credit to you. Two front tyres purchased after a couple of options talked through with Louis. I booked everything on-line, arrived at my specified date/time, car was started on time and my car was treated with care. I took advantage of the free wheel alignment check, all fours wheels were out, quote received and all four wheels re-aligned. Such great service, I've been here before with a previous car, two new front tyres and and puncture repair on another occasion. I can't fault the team, I'll be back.
