Why do I need Tracking?

Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.

Tracking at Priorslee Motors

Wheel alignment, or tracking, is the process of ensuring your vehicle’s wheels are set to the optimum position, as per the car manufacturer’s specifications, so that tyres wear evenly. Incorrect wheel alignment can be caused by hitting a kerb, driving into a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. It is important to get your wheel alignment checked annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres.

Tracking Terminology

Wheel alignment involves checking the direction and angle of the wheels. The misalignment positions are often described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.

  • Toe refers to whether the front of the tyres are closer or further apart than the rear of the tyres. Different types of vehicles need different toe settings to allow for the way that wheels pull either towards each other or apart.
  • Camber is the inward or outward tilt of a tyre. The camber is set by the vehicle manufacturer, and can be affected by potholes in the road and may need to be adjusted periodically.

When do I need tracking?

Priorslee Motor Services recommend that you get your wheel alignment checked regularly and every time after any violent shock to your tyres such as hitting a kerb, speed bump or pothole at speed.
