Why four wheel alignment

Having a four wheel alignment check should be part of any responsible motorists servicing procedure. By having your vehicle checked annually or every 15,000 miles you can:

Reduce Tyre Wear

Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tyre wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tyre life.

Reduce Fuel Consumption

Fuel consumption decreases as rolling resistance decreases. Four wheel alignment sets all four wheels parallel, which along with proper tyre pressures minimises the rolling resistance.

Improve Handling

Does your car pull to one side? Does the steering wheel vibrate? Do you constantly have to move the steering wheel to keep your car travelling straight ahead? Many handling problems can be corrected by four wheel alignment. With all the system components aligned properly, road shock is more efficiently absorbed for a smoother ride.


Ensure Safer Driving

A suspension system inspection is part of our alignment procedure. This allows us to spot worn parts before they cause costly problems.

What to expect from a four wheel alignment service from College Tyres

The Hunter wheel alignment system measures 14 different angles such as camber, caster, thrust line, set back and of course toe in or toe out of each wheel measured against the vehicle centre line for all four wheels. Comparisons are then made with the vehicle manufacturers’ data. The initial measurement should take no more than 15 – 30 minutes. The alignment technician will then be able to discuss the findings with you and which adjustments should or can be made.

When the alignment adjustments are complete, you will be presented with your personalised printout, showing the ‘before and after’ measurements, which should be kept with your vehicle servicing records. It is your guarantee that the work has been carried out to your satisfaction.

Thanks to Pro-Align Ltd and Hunter Engineering Co for alignment pictures and information.
