Tyre and Wheel Alignment
Wheel alignment issues can cause premature or uneven tyre wear, excessive fuel consumption and cause your vehicle to pull left or right. At Goodyear Auto Care Timaru we have the latest, state-of-the-art wheel alignment diagnostic equipment and scanners to make sure your vehicle is driving at its best.
Our comprehensive wheel alignments start with a pre-check – a mechanical check of all steering and suspension components. This enables us to make sure there are no separate issues causing the vehicle to have problems.
Then once any additional problems are eliminated, we can make the necessary toe, camber and caster adjustments as per the vehicle specifications.
Our new top of the line wheel balancing machine is the best available. It’s technology ensures a precision wheel balance, not only checking the balance of the tyre, but also checking the balance of the rim separately.
This means that any imperfections in the rim such as buckles will be identified. The machine will also pick up impact fractures and separation issues in the tyre.
Whether balancing new tyres or rebalancing existing tyres, our machine will ensure that you get the best job possible.
Regular wheel alignments along with correct tyre tread and pressures are essential for safe driving
Running the wrong tyre pressures can cause your tyres to wear prematurely. It can also increase fuel consumption, can make steering more difficult and be hazardous in the wet.
