What Causes Wheel Misalignment?
Mentioned below are some of the primary causes of misaligned wheels:
Worn out vehicle parts
Certain parts of your vehicle, such as the suspension system, can cause wheel alignment issues. For example, loose or worn bearings can cause the tyres to tilt. Additionally, a damaged steering gearbox can also lead to a vehicle pulling to one side.
Increased pressure on wheels
Vehicles sustaining heavy impacts caused due to potholes, road bumps, or accidents will often suffer from wheel misalignment. So, if you are someone who has to drive under such conditions, ensure timely checks by visiting a reliable car workshop.
Modifications in height
Note that your car's suspension is designed in a specific way that works at a certain height. If you alter your vehicle's height, it may directly affect the suspension. This will, in turn, impact your car's wheel alignment.
How Can We Help?
To restore the alignment of your vehicle's front wheels, our experts will inspect the following vehicle angles:
Camber is the wheel's angle in relation to the vehicle's verticals. Depending upon the tilt of this angle, it is either considered positive or negative. When the top part of the tyres tilts away from the vehicle's centre, it is a positive camber. Similarly, when the top part tilts inwards, it is negative camber. Depending upon the type of vehicle, some positive or negative camber might be helpful for you.
Our in-house experts will follow your vehicle manufacturer's recommendations to align the camber angle.
Caster is the axis of the steering wheel when viewed from the side. An inappropriate caster may hamper your vehicle's steering control. Caster angles are also defined as negative and positive. A line sloping towards the rear of a vehicle is a positive caster. At the same time, a front sloping line is a negative caster.
Typically, changes in caster angle apply to racing cars. So, if you drive a streetcar, we will adjust this angle as per the manufacturer's settings.
Toe is the angle when we view a vehicle's tyres from a birds-eye position. Unlike caster and camber, toe angles are determined as either toe-in or toe-out. Wheels pointing towards the vehicle are toe-in, whereas those pointing outwards are at a toe-out angle.
You may have seen race cars with a toe-out angle. This promotes increased turning efficiency in such vehicles. However, streetcars are better off with toe-in, providing better stability.
Besides checking these angles, our technicians will also align your vehicle's thrust angle.
Note - Thrust angle alignment is suitable for vehicles with independent rear suspension. So, if you drive an all-wheel-drive model, you will have to opt for a 4 wheel alignment.
