About Wheel Alignments
Alignments aren’t different per se, but vehicles are more advanced and precise now than ever before. A lot has changed not only mechanicaly but with the common use of electronics in vehicles nowadays everything has become far more sophisticated. As a result, maintaining the handling and performance that modern vehicles are capable of, a proper alignment must be done to take account where all the wheels are pointed.
There’s more vehicle variety on the road these days, too. Vehicles have different purposes. Some have rear steering capabilities. Some have stability controls or dynamic stability controls or active stability management . Many modern vehicles need their SAS (Steering Angle Sensors) to be reset in the cars computer. Every car manufacturer is different and requires different methods to adjust each unique system.
Alignment is a really complex topic. Simply put - when your wheels are out of alignment, your tyres aren’t pointing in the right direction. Being out the smallest amount at speed will cause excessive tyre wear and could affect you safety.
Vibrations no longer a problem
Vibrations are a thing of the past with the latest balancer we use. Unlike others it does a static (up and down) and dyanamic (side to side) balance then it calibrates the best placement of weights to give the best combination elimating vibrations.
More than just Wheel Balance
At 100kph the average tyre rotates 850times per minute. At this speed any problem with the tyre or rim can literally cause the tyre to hammer the road at 14 times a second. We can now simulate that on our new Road Force Balancer and diagnose the fault.
