Tracking and 4 Wheel alignment
Wheel alignment or tracking is a critical part of a vehicles set up. Poor alignment can lead to premature tyre wear and bad handling characteristics. The alignment process involves measuring the angles and specific directions of your vehicles’ wheels, and comparing the results against the manufacturers recommended road use settings. Modern vehicles have wheels which are adjustable in multiple directions, allowing for a highly accurate approach to adjustments.
This allows for the possibility of achieving very precise settings. These may be varied to suit a variety of specialised set ups, including for racing and off road activities. We provide the very latest in wheel alignment systems. These utilise both lasers and wheel pad weighing sensors. This allows us to handle the most demanding of 4 wheel set ups for all situations from general road use to competitions.
