Wheel alignment is the process of adjusting the different angles of your wheels as recommended by the vehicles manufacture specifications. Wheel alignment changes the angles of each wheel to ensure perfect tyre contact with the road; as well as pointing all wheels in the same direction.
In order to achieve correct wheel alignment, adjustments are made to the front toe, rear toe, thrust angle, camber and castor, not all of these alterations are necessary for all vehicles. Ensuring that all the wheels on your vehicle are in exact alignment with the road as well as pointing in the same direction.
