Mechanic & Wheel Alignment FAQs
What Is Wheel Alignment?
Wheel alignment is a mechanical service whereby we make sure your cars wheels are correctly aligned. We do this by adjusting the steering and suspension of a vehicle back to its original manufacturers settings. The extent to which your vehicle requires wheel alignment will depend on factors such as the driving history of the car as well as the type of vehicle you drive.
At O’Neills Tyres in Maitland, we are equipped with the latest wheel alignment and balancing technology to ensure your vehicle receives the most accurate service possible.
What Are The Signs My Wheel Needs Alignment?
There are a few common signs that your wheels need aligning. These include:
- Your vehicle is pulling to either the left or right when driving
- Increase tyre wear, particularly on one side
- When you’re driving straight, your steering wheel is crooked
While the issue may seem small, even slightly misaligned wheels will result in your tyres performance wearing out faster. And this can happen easily. Road hazards like potholes and minor bumps of curbs can knock them out of alignment. If you notice any of these warning signs, come into O’Neills Tyres for expert wheel alignment.
How Often Should You Get Your Car Serviced By a Mechanic?
As a general rule, it’s recommended to have your car serviced once every 6 months or once every 10,000 km. Every car is different though and some manufacturers require servicing more often.
To check your vehicle’s servicing requirements, inspect the log book or owners manual. If in doubt, it’s always safest to bring your car in for a service to prevent small issues becoming major problems over time.
