In the Calderdale district of North England, we experience a high incidence of vehicle owners needing Wheel Alignment. The main causes for this is driving over

Holes in the road. This is because the local council are reluctant to carry out Repairs. This includes safety humps. This can change the car’s steering and suspension geometries. Potholes can also  break key parts such as suspension and steering components. This effect can reduce the vehicle’s safety or add expensive extra costs. The effect can also damage the cars structure permanently. But by ensuring the wheels are precisely aligned, will be avoided. Motorists can eliminate the effects of any pothole or speed bump injury and make sure they stay as safe as possible.

The latest bad frosts will, without the doubt, multiply the quantity of potholes that cause the destruction. Because mud and snow could hide the potholes. Then it can cause some serious safety issues for motorists. If a driver knows that they have hit a pothole they must get their  Wheel Alignment

Most garages will give you a free of a charge tracking (alignment) check, and you will only pay for the job if the wheel alignment is out, and it needs adjusting(except for Four-Wheel Alignment).

Wheel alignment should be carried out at regular intervalsRoad Potholes

Furthermore, to sum up, have your wheel alignment was done at regular periods, especially if you think that you have hit a deep hole or run over a safety hump at speed. Continually have the wheel alignment corrected if you are having new tyres mounted on your wheels. Your tyre centre may ask you to come back afterwards. Then a few days motoring will not effect the wear on your tyres. Have your pressures and tyre wear checked methodically. If you have any doubt which tyres to buy, then go for a mid-range make, this will mean that you get good quality tyres, and the tyres will be at a better price than a leading make. Once again a good garage or tyre depot will be happy to help and check your tyres free of charge.Also your wheel alignment of course.
