WHY DOES MY CAR NEED

HUNTER WHEEL ALIGNMENT 

An alignment service is important to do when:

  • You get new tyres.
  • You lower or lift your vehicle.
  • Suspension parts that affect the tyre angles are replaced or adjusted.
  • You’ve had some form of hard impact with a curb, road debris or pothole.
  • It’s been a year since your last one.
  • You notice uneven tyre wear, steering pull, or an off-centre steering wheel.

We recommend an alignment after the installation of new tyres. This helps you get the most life from your new tyres. Wheel alignment checks are always advised after a significant impact or uneven tyre wear is detected.

Also, get a check annually, or twice yearly if you typically travel on rough roads. Regular checks are important because alignment issues aren’t always obvious. The wrong toe angle can go unnoticed and so can atypical wear. 

The most common signs of misalignment are pulling to one side while you’re driving, unusual tyre wear and/or a steering wheel that’s off-centre even though your vehicle is pointed straight. But these symptoms can have other causes, sometimes simpler and sometimes not.

Steering pull can be caused by road conditions. If the asphalt has grooves that are slightly farther apart than your car’s axles, you may feel a pull as the tyres on one side ride slightly higher. If the road is noticeably higher in the centre, the vehicle may veer as the tyres try to find a level surface.

Poor alignment may not be the issue if your steering wheel sometimes tugs in one direction and then the other. A bent or worn suspension part — ball joints, strut bearings or tie rods — could be to blame.

Atypical tyre wear may be the result of worn shocks or struts, bushings, or springs, or from carrying heavy loads (all of which can also put your vehicle out of alignment). Uneven wear can also be caused by driving on over-, underinflated, or imbalanced tyres.

An off-centre steering wheel can be caused by worn steering or suspension parts. Just getting an alignment won’t fix the root cause.

Replacement of suspension and steering parts — struts, shocks, ball joints, tie rods, bushings, or control arms. If one of these components is damaged, it’s a pretty good bet your vehicle’s alignment is out of spec. If you don’t fix them before your vehicle is aligned, you’ll soon have the problem recur.
