Wheel alignment is adjusting the angles of wheels to the car manufacturer specifications. Depending on the driving conditions, wheels deviate from their specific position in the chassis and therefore, wheel alignment is required. The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tyre wear and tear, and also to ensure that vehicle is moving in the exact direction the driver wants it to be. This has to be straight and true without pulling to one side.
However, alignment angles can also be slightly changed from the specifications to obtain a specific handling characteristic. Motorsport and off-road applications often call for angles to be adjusted beyond normal for a variety of reasons. Nonetheless, experts at Sundar Tyres suggest to replace your tyre every 10,000 km and keep checking the alignment at every 1,000 km.
Majority of modern vehicles have Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that are there to solve a number of purposes. Electronic wheel alignment systems and mechanical wheel alignment systems are one of these. In addition, a number of tools are used to determine the precision of such systems. At Sundar Tyres, we employ specific industry standard tools and techniques with the help of trained technicians for best quality services.
Being cost effective is another aspect that vehicle owners should consider. With the rising costs of fuel, having your wheels properly aligned can save you a decent amount of money. It minimizes rolling resistance, meaning your car will burn less fuel.
It is of utmost importance that vehicle owners keep their wheels aligned to maximize the lives of their tyres and extract the best performance from their vehicles as well. Tyres that are not properly aligned are prone to excessive wear and will certainly cost you frequent tyre replacements and repairs. This can become a serious issue as the vehicle will not move straight when the steering wheel is not being held. Improper wheel alignment will also result in poor cornering and be handing that will make it dangerous both for the driver and the passengers, especially in icy and wet conditions. Additionally, such a problem will also cause in with your vehicle’s suspension system.
While considering all these reasons, it seems that keeping a check on your vehicle is your best bet to get the most out of it. In addition, owners who think that such regular checkups may feel heavy on their pocket should also consider that it is better to spend a smaller amount on such issues and keep your vehicle in a great shape rather than getting stuck in the midst of nowhere or facing a road accident.
