Wheel alignment is one of the most overlooked areas of car maintenance, when it comes to keeping your car in good condition, quite often there is nothing more important than the wheel alignment. While it’s not something that you might immediately think of when it comes to the health of your car, it is one of the key elements. Failure to align the wheels of your car correctly could result in irregular tyre wear, which will affect the handling and subsequent safety of the vehicle. Here at Britannia Tyres, Derby, we do everything we can to deal with your wheel alignment problems. If you notice any issues with the handling or performance of your car, bring it to our garage in Derby for a FREE wheel alignment check.

As well as better fuel economy and smoother handling, correct wheel alignment will reduce the wear and tear on your vehicle and extend the life of your tyres. With all four wheels correctly aligned, your car will be safer on the road and easier on your pocket.

What are the symptoms of incorrect wheel alignment?

Some noticeable signs could indicate a misalignment. Here are some common signs that you are dealing with poor alignment:

  • Tyres will wear more unevenly and faster than normal
  • Decreased fuel economy
  • Steering wheel doesn’t centralise when you are driving straight
  • Squealing tyres
  • Uneven or excessive tyre wear
  • Poor handling
  • Heavy steering
  • Vibration through the steering wheel

Hitting a kerb or driving over a pothole too quickly can often cause wheel misalignment. Wheel alignments are a critical part of your vehicle. While you might think it's ok if the alignment is a little bit off, what you might not realise is that the longer you let it go, the worse it will get and the more damage you’ll cause. Don’t put off getting your wheels aligned until it’s too late.

Driving in Derby

Work on a new road link from Derby to the A50 is now expected to start in 2023 following the Government’s allocation of Levelling Up Fund money to the tune of almost £50 million. The new road junction will create access to fields where hundreds of new homes will be built and space provided for businesses, creating 1000s of new jobs. The area will also see one of the very few new UK garden villages being created.
