WHEEL ALIGNMENT at MP MOTORSPORTZ
Wheel alignment is important for good road holding and to maximise the lifespan of your tyres. Hitting a kerb or driving at speed through a pot hole can result in your wheels becoming misaligned.
Incorrect wheel alignment can result in rapid wearing on the edges of the tyre and could affect the handling on the vehicle and certainly mean a replacement earlier than would otherwise be required.
Correct wheel alignment ensures that the tyres are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other so that on a level and straight road your car will travel in a straight line.
Our Hofmann wheel alignment machine can accurately give us reading on various reading from your car such as Camber, Caster, Thrust Line, Toe in and Toe out. The position and orientation of your wheels are compared against the vehicle manufacturers data for your vehicle, ensuring the vehicle is set up perfectly for you to drive.
Regular wheel alignment can reduce uneven tyre wear, improve the handling of your vehicle and save you money by lowering fuel consumption. Wheel alignment involves checking the direction and angle of the wheels. The misalignment positions are often described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.
"Toe" refers to whether the front of the tyres are closer or further apart than the rear of the tyres. Different types of vehicles need different toe settings to allow for the way that wheels pull either towards each other or apart.
"Camber" is the inward or outward tilt of a tyre. The camber is set by the vehicle manufacturer, and can be affected by potholes in the road and may need to be adjusted periodically.
Our high-quality computerised alignment equipment ensures your wheel alignment is adjusted to the manufacturer's original specification with the highest degree of accuracy. We will show you the current alignment readings on your car and advise you if it requires aligning or not.
