How do I know if my car wheels are out of alignment?

A good question! it is not always obvious, especially if the misalignment is slight, but there are signs to look out for:

  • Uneven tyre wear on the fronts or the rears
    If you can’t visibly see the wear, run your hands over the tyre and you can soon feel where the rubber has worn excessively, on the inside or outside edges. Warning – Be careful, in extreme cases of excessive wear fine wire may be protruding from the rubber.
  • The car pulls to the left and right
    When driving along a straight flat road and you either need to compensate through the steering to keep the car driving straight the car drifts to the left or right under braking.
  • A crooked steering wheel
    The steering wheel is not straight, even when driving straight.
