The steering system on every car is very important and requires regular maintenance to keep it at an optimum standard.
The steering rack on all motor vehicles is easily knocked out of alignment by all the speed humps and potholes in the road. When the wheel alignment becomes out of tolerance the tyres will wear unevenly on either edge of the side walls.
Noticeable signs of wheel imbalance to look out for are:
Steering wheel is off-set when the vehicle is travelling in a straight line
The vehicle may drift/pull to the left or right
The front tyres will wear bald or show signs of uneven wear on either edge
If any of these faults are present on your vehicle we strongly recommend you have your wheel alignment checked and adjusted if necessary, as soon as possible.
At Peter James Motor Group we can prolong the life of your tyres with a wheel alignment check and regular servicing. Our highly trained technicians can be of assistance to advise you of the best solution for any steering problems.
