In order to ensure complete car safety you need to make sure you have your car tyres both correctly balanced and aligned. This will give you greater comfort, longer tyre life and better safety. Whenever your tyres are fitted they should be balanced and aligned and repeated again whenever necessary.
Car Tyre Balancing When your car tyres have been correctly balanced the tyres rotate on the axis without vibrations, this is due to the proper distribution of weight. When tyres are balanced the mechanic places counterweights at certain parts of the rim. The mechanic uses specialist measurement equipment to determine the ideal weighting. Good balancing enables:
- Increased tyre life.
- Greater driving comfort.
- Less stress on parts of the vehicle.
Car Tyre Alignment This involves the optimisation of the angles and alignments adjustable on your vehicle; such as the camber, castor and alignment, taking into consideration the tyre wear and manufacturer’s data. With every vehicle having its own specific geometry settings laid out by the manufacturer. These must be adhered to in order to meet the criteria of stability, road holding, steering precision and to avoid abnormal tyre wear and steering wear. Every set of tyres fitted in Tyreland receive full balancing and alignment by professionals. Call into one of our depots where we also offer a 3D Laser Alignment service.
