Wheel alignments keep your car in alignment with the roads to avoid premature tyre wear and fatigue. It’s the best way to get bang for buck for your tyre purchase and keep you feeling safe on the road!
We recommend checking wheel alignments every 10,000 to 20,000km depending on the vehicle or your driving habits. Generally, completing a wheel alignment twice a year is more than sufficient if you’re driving on highway roads, regularly servicing your vehicle and don’t tow or go off road often.
However – listen to your vehicle! There are critical times to get a wheel alignment. This can be if:
If you have the niggling feeling something might be up with your wheel alignment or vehicle in general, we encourage you to come into our stores and speak to one of our friendly and professional staff. We’re here to help, and happily give free advice and checks to keep you feeling safe and confident on the road.
When we do a wheel alignment we go the Full Enchilada – not just a “toe and go.” Adjusting the toe on any vehicle can take 5-10 minutes and will 99.9% of the time result in your car driving perfectly straight but it is not going to prevent uneven tyre and mechanical wear as it’s adjusting the vehicle’s alignment properly. Think of it as the shortcut with poor results.
We use high quality machines that measure and adjust camber, caster and toe to ensure any issues are ironed out in the hour that your vehicle is under our care. We also take every single vehicle for a test drive to ensure the alignment is correct and if it’s not – you bet, we are putting it up again.
In the short term this may take a bit longer than other stores to do a wheel alignment at ALPHA Tyres but you are guaranteed to have the job done completely and properly the first time, and save time returning later with other issues
We love offering the most value possible to our customers, but you’ll rarely see us provide free wheel alignments. Why? A wheel alignment is an exceptionally technical service, one we value in the highest regard. Our wheel aligners are highly trained and certified in the practice – it’s not just something anyone can do. We proudly own top of the range wheel alignment machines in our Cohuna and Moama store, and the process of completing an accurate wheel alignment takes up to an hour with full adjustments and test driving. We value this service and its importance and this is why we charge accordingly.
