Benefits of Aligning Your Wheels

At 5 Star Tyres, we understand the critical role that wheel alignment plays in vehicle maintenance. Proper alignment not only extends the lifespan of your tyres by ensuring even wear across the tread but also enhances the handling of your vehicle. This means a smoother, more controlled driving experience that can help prevent accidents, especially in challenging driving conditions. 

Moreover, well-aligned wheels reduce rolling resistance, which in turn optimises fuel consumption, saving you money at the petrol station. It also decreases the strain on other car components, such as the suspension, leading to reduced maintenance costs over time. By ensuring that your vehicle’s wheels are precisely aligned, you benefit from a safer, more economical, and enjoyable driving experience.

When Should You Get A
Wheel Alignment?

You should consider getting a wheel alignment under the following circumstances:

  1. After Purchasing New Tyres: It’s advisable to align your wheels after fitting new tyres to ensure they wear evenly from the start.
  2. If You Notice Uneven Tyre Wear: This could indicate that the wheels are out of alignment.
  3. After an Impact: If you’ve hit a pothole, curb, or road debris, it’s wise to check the alignment to prevent any long-term damage.
  4. When There Are Handling Issues: If your vehicle pulls to one side or the steering wheel vibrates or isn’t centred when driving straight, these are signs that the alignment may be off.
  5. As Part of Regular Maintenance: Many manufacturers recommend having a wheel alignment checked every 15,000 Kilometres or once a year as part of your vehicle’s regular maintenance schedule.
Make the Right Choice for You!

What are the risks of not
having your wheels aligned?

Neglecting wheel alignment can lead to several risks, including:

  1. Increased Tyre Wear: Misaligned wheels cause uneven and accelerated tyre wear, which means you’ll need to replace your tyres more frequently than you would with regular alignments.

  2. Poor Handling: A vehicle with misaligned wheels may not handle properly, which can make it harder to steer, especially in challenging conditions like wet or icy roads. This can increase the likelihood of accidents.

  3. Reduced Fuel Efficiency: When wheels aren’t aligned, your vehicle’s engine has to work harder to propel you forward, which can lead to decreased fuel efficiency.

  4. Extra Strain on Car Components: Misalignment can also put unnecessary stress on other parts of your car, such as brakes and suspension systems, leading to potentially costly repairs down the line.

  5. Compromised Safety: Overall, the safety of your vehicle is compromised because the stability and predictability of its handling are diminished, which can be particularly dangerous in emergency manoeuvring situations.

I couldn't be happier with the service provided by Jakub and his coworkers. Despite the late afternoon hour on a Saturday and the fact that they were closing up shop for the day, they went above and beyond to fix my punctured tyre. Their speedy and efficient service was truly impressive. I'm grateful for their service and professionalism I will definitely be returning for any future tyre needs.
