What is Wheel Alignment?
Wheel alignment (or tracking) is the process of adjusting the angles of the wheels so they meet the manufacturer’s specifications. Properly aligned wheels are essential to ensure your Skoda does not pull to one side when driving, resulting in the correct and safe operation of your car. Poorly aligned wheels will cause irregular tyre wear, and can negatively affect handling and safety.
It’s important to note that a wheel alignment issue is not a wheel or tyre problem. It’s a problem with the vehicle’s suspension. Wheel alignment is gradually lost as parts of the suspension wear out.
Dack Motor Group is fully equipped with the latest alignment technology that allows us to identify any problems with your tracking and resolve it as quickly as we can.
Do I Need Skoda Front Wheel Alignment?
If your car is pulling to one side when driving or if you have to hold the steering off centre to keep going straight, you probably have a wheel alignment issue. This means that your wheels are not making the right contact with the road or you have imbalanced steering.
Your tracking could be incorrect if you feel that your Skoda:
- Has uneven or abnormal tyre wear
- Is dragging or pulling one side
- Has a steering wheel vibration
- Has a scrubbing or squealing noise at low speeds
What Causes Misalignment?
It is surprisingly easy for the wheels on your car to become misaligned. Commonly, misalignment is caused by hitting the kerb whilst driving or parking. Accidents, road conditions and potholes are also all high contributors to knocking the tracking off your car.
Why Is Wheel Alignment Important?
If the wheel alignment on your vehicle isn’t checked, it can cause even bigger and more expensive issues for your car in the future.
For example, if your wheels aren’t aligned properly, your tyres will likely wear down unevenly, causing you to replace them more often than necessary. With the price of new tyres, this can end up being very expensive.
Another thing to consider is fuel savings, as any extra drag will limit the efficiency of your car.
Furthermore, if your car is drifting then it will not be as safe to drive, not only when you aren’t paying attention, but it’s also less safe when road conditions aren’t the best as your car isn’t as easy to steer.
How Often Does Wheel Alignment need to be checked?
Tyre manufacturers recommend alignment to prolong the life of your tyres when they are first fitted. If you feel your steering or tyres don't feel right, or you have uneven tyre wear, this is the time to get your alignment checked.
What Is The Skoda Wheel Alignment Cost?
The Wheel Alignment cost will vary depending on which model you have. For example, a Skoda Fabia front wheel alignment will cost less than a much larger model, like the Skoda Octavia. Feel free to speak to a member of our team to discuss this in more detail.
