Is your car uncomfortable to drive? Does it pull in one direction or another? These problems and more could be the result of poorly aligned wheels. Incorrect wheel alignment can result in rapid, irregular tyre wear and can negatively affect the handling and safety of your vehicle. Wheels can edge out of alignment for many reasons, including unavoidable driving occurrences like hitting potholes and speed bumps.
At Elite Wheels & Tyres in Reading, Berkshire, we can put your vehicle back on the straight and narrow by analysing the current wheel alignment and working to correct it. During the alignment check, the car’s suspension geometry settings will be measured against the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. Any adjustments are then made to prolong your tyre’s lifespan and protect your safety.

We use top-of-the-range wheel alignment technology, with four precision cameras to measure the position and orientation of targets mounted on each wheel of your car. The aligner computer uses this information to accurately calculate your car’s current alignment.
With the geometry out of alignment, the vehicle can be unsteady on evasive or emergency actions. During alignment, we can spot worn parts or defective tyres.
Often the problems blamed on wheel alignments are simply the fault of old, out-of-condition tyres. We offer a free wheel and tyre inspection which can help us identify the true culprit.
With the wheels straight and parallel with each other, and tyres at the correct pressure, there is a reduction in the tyres’ rolling resistance. Fuel consumption is reduced by less drag on the tyres, whereas misalignment increases drag and therefore fuel consumption.
Misalignment is a major cause of premature wear. Correct alignment adds miles to the life of tyre.
Many handling problems can be corrected by four wheel alignment, giving you a safer, better and more improved drive.
