Wheel alignment , or tracking, ensures that your vehicle handles correctly while reducing the wear on your tyres. We are an approved Supertracker Alignment Centre, able to carry out front and four wheel laser alignment on all vehicles (even if they're lowered).
We offer a FREE WHEEL ALIGNMENT CHECK and adjustment starting from £30.00. An appointment may be necessary for some vehicles. Call for more details.
The correct tyre pressure is vital for both safety and for extending the life of your tyre.
It is recommended, you should check your tyre pressures monthly
Call in anytime for a free tyre pressure check.
It is important that the weight of your wheel and tyre is evenly distributed around the axle. This is achieved by adding offset weights at specific points around your wheel. If you notice a “wobble” when driving in excess of 40-50mph it is likely your wheels need rebalancing.
We have the facilities to balance wire wheels and closed centre wheel balance.
Please note: if you are purchasing new tyres from us then a full wheel balance check and re-balancing of the wheel is included in the price.
Most cars now are fitted with locking wheel nuts as a security measure to deter thieves.
These nuts need a key also known as a locking wheel nut key to remove them. When it comes to fitting new tyres, brakes etc... if this key is lost, stolen or damaged the locking nuts will need to be removed using specialist tools and techniques. This can be carried out on site.
