Wheel Alignment in Cardiff

ETB Autocentres in Cardiff specialises in wheel alignment, our trained technicians work with the latest technology to ensure your wheels are aligned to the best accuracy so that you can enjoy smooth, economical, and safe driving. The wheels on your car must be correctly positioned, enabling the tyres to wear at an even rate. Hitting a kerb or driving over a pothole too quickly can often cause wheel misalignment. Failure to align the wheels of your car correctly could result in irregular tyre wear and affect the handling and safety of your vehicle.

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

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.
