What is Wheel Alignment?
In essence, wheel alignment is the checking and adjustment of your wheels’ angles and direction against your vehicle manufacturer’s specifications to ensure:
- The wheels are parallel to one another
- The wheels are perpendicular (at a right angle) to the ground
- Your vehicle runs true and straight while driving along a level, straight road
- You get maximum life out of your tyres
Misalignment of the wheel angle and direction are frequently described as positive or negative camber and toe in or out respectively.
Camber and Toe
Set by vehicle manufacturers, the camber is the angle of the wheel to the ground. Misalignment would be indicated by an excessive outward or inward tilt of the wheel. The camber of your wheels may require adjustment periodically. The term ‘toe’ refers to the direction of the wheel and indicates whether the front of the wheels is closer together or further apart than the rear of the wheels. Wheel alignment can be affected by driving through a pothole or hitting a kerb, for instance. Excessive wear to suspension or steering components may also cause misalignment.
