Four wheel alignment sets the wheels straight/parallel, which along with the correct tyre pressures (see Nitrogen inflation), minimises the rolling resistance. Fuel consumption reduces as the drag on the tyres (rolling resistance) decreases.
Optimised tyre mileage
Incorrect alignment is a major cause of premature tyre wear.
Saves money and environment
By preventing premature tyre wear and improving fuel economy, it not only reduces the cost of motoring, but it also helps CO2 emssions and the environment around us.
Many handling problems can be corrected by four wheel alignment, giving the driver a better and more enjoyable driving experience.
Reduced mechanical wear
When wheels or axles are not aligned, mechanical parts are subject to increased stress and premature wear. Suspension components and bearings are two areas that can be affected leading to increased vehicle costs and downtime.
Misalignment will make the car less stable when taking emergency or evasive action. A suspension system inspection is part of an alignment procedure, therefore potentially allows worn parts to be spotted before they cause a more costly problem.
