Got a problem with your wheel alignment and want it fixed fast? Call us!

Are you noticing uneven tyre wear or struggling with vehicle handling? You may be experiencing problems with your wheel alignment. Our fully trained specialists will be happy to carry out a comprehensive wheel alignment check - completely free of charge!

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. Although undetectable to the driver, 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.

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.

What people are saying about us...

  • Even though the issues with my car ended up needing a specialist the staff helped me the best they could to source what I needed and have said they will do everything they can to help in the future if needed. I have our second vehicle booked in with them for work and MOT next week. Thanks

  • Exceptionally good service, the delay was due to my car needing further work so I was not bothered about the extra time needed. I highly recommend F1,and will use again in the future.
