In emergency situations where you may need to make abrupt manoeuvres, misaligned wheels can pose a risk.
Experts typically advise getting your wheels aligned every 10,000 to 12,000 miles, or sooner if you observe any indications of misalignment such as your vehicle veering to one side or uneven tyre wear.

We recognise the significance of ensuring that your vehicle's wheels are correctly aligned, as it is critical for your car's safety, handling and overall performance.
What is 4 Wheel Alignment?
4 Wheel alignment refers to the adjustment of the angles of the wheels relative to each other and the vehicle's frame. The purpose of this adjustment is to ensure that the wheels are set at right angles to the ground and in a parallel orientation to each other, as specified by the manufacturer's specifications. Proper 4 wheel alignment helps to ensure that the tyres wear evenly and that the vehicle handles well while driving, improving safety, ride comfort, and fuel efficiency.
Warning Signs Of Misaligned Wheels
- If your car tends to pull to one side or drifts off course while driving on a straight, level road, it could be a sign of misaligned wheels.
- Misaligned wheels can cause uneven tyre wear, meaning that one side of the tyre wears out faster than the other. If you notice that your tyres are wearing out unevenly, it could be due to misaligned wheels.
- If you feel a vibration in the steering wheel while driving, it could also be a sign of misaligned wheels.
If you notice any of these signs while driving, we recommend booking an appointment with us - Adams Tyre Specialists for a 4 wheel alignment service. You can conveniently schedule an appointment via this website or over the phone.

Our 4 Wheel Alignment Process
Here is how we conduct 4 wheel alignment:
Our experts conduct a comprehensive inspection of your vehicle's suspension, steering, and wheels to assess the extent of any misalignment and detect any underlying issues that may be contributing to it.
Alignment Adjustment using Primary Angles:
To correct wheel misalignment, we use specialised equipment to measure the angles of the wheels and adjust them accordingly. The three primary 4 wheel alignment angles are camber, toe, and caster.
Camber is the vertical tilt of the wheels when viewed from the front or rear of the vehicle. A positive camber angle means that the tops of the wheels tilt outward, a negative camber angle means that the tops of the wheels tilt inward, and a neutral camber angle means that the wheels are perfectly vertical. Proper camber alignment ensures even tyre wear and improves handling.
Caster is the angle of the steering axis when viewed from the side of the vehicle. It is the angle between the vertical line from the centre of the wheel and the steering axis. A positive caster angle means that the steering axis tilts backward, while a negative caster angle means that the steering axis tilts forward. Proper caster alignment promotes stability, steering, and handling.
Toe is the horizontal angle of the wheels when viewed from above. It refers to the difference in distance between the front and rear of the wheels. A positive toe angle means that the wheels are closer at the front than the rear, while a negative toe angle means that the wheels are closer at the rear than the front. Proper toe alignment ensures that the wheels roll parallel to each other and promotes even tyre wear, handling, and stability.
If we identify any suspension or steering issues during the inspection, we will offer expert advice and recommendations for further repairs or maintenance to ensure the long-term dependability and performance of your car.
