The steering system on every car is very important and requires regular maintenance to keep it at an optimum standard. The steering rack on all motor vehicles is easily knocked out of alignment by all the speed humps and potholes in the road. When the wheel alignment becomes out of tolerance the tyres will wear unevenly on either edge of the side walls.
Noticeable signs of displaced geometry or alignment are:
- Steering wheel is off-set when the vehicle is travelling in a straight line
- The vehicle may drift/pull to the left or right
- The front tyres will wear bald or show signs of uneven wear on either edge
If any of these faults are present on your vehicle we strongly recommend you have your wheel alignment and steering geometry checked and adjusted if necessary. We advise checking wheel alignment and steering geometry no less than at least once a year though possibly more if there has been noticable impact or trauma identified. Our highly trained technicians can be of assistance to advise you of the best solution for any steering geometry problems.
