A major cause of rapid tread wear is improper wheel alignment.
Listed below are some factors that indicate improper wheel alignment.
Abnormal harshness of steering is a signal that alignment may be incorrect.
Scrubbing or squealing noises at low speeds
Steering wheel vibration
Uneven or abnormal tyre wear
Wheel alignment (or tracking) is an important part of car maintenance. It refers to the angle and direction at which your tyres are set.
Your alignment may be incorrect due to the hitting of kerbs or driving at speed through a pothole. Poorly aligned vehicles will decrease the life of your tyres, so it's really important to check your wheels regularly.
At UK Tyres, we use specialist equipment to accurately adjust the front wheels of your vehicle. Your wheels need to be aligned to the recommended position as outlined in your vehicle's manufacturer specification. We advise to have your car realigned when fitting a set of new tyres on your vehicle. This will help prolong the lifetime of your tyres and prevent uneven wear of the tyres.
