This misalignment leads to speedy tread wear and can potentially jeopardise your vehicle safety as well. Worn-out tyres affect the ability of the car to come to a complete stop, especially during harsh weather conditions.
How can we help?
Technicians use state-of-the-art aligners to adjust car alignment per manufacturer specifications at our facility.
At our garage for wheel alignment Stevenage, we focus on re-aligning these three angles:
Camber refers to the outward or inward tilt of your car wheels when viewed from the front of the vehicle. While a slight inward tilt indicates negative camber, positive camber refers to the outward tilt of the wheels. Proper camber angle is crucial for an extended tyre service life and improved handling precision.
The slope of the steering axis viewed from a side is the caster angle. Most vehicles have a slightly positive caster angle that improves steering responsiveness and car handling stability.
The outward or inward tilt of your car wheels when observed from the top is the toe angle. If the wheels tilt inwards, it indicates a toe-in position, while an outward tilt refers to a toe-out. This angle must be per manufacturer specifications for maximum driving comfort and safety.
