wheel alignment

Welcome to our Drive Ryte Luton information page about wheel alignment.

Potholes, kerbs, road damage: the chassis mechanics are subjected to constant stress in everyday life. The partly violent shocks and impacts on the wheel suspension inevitably cause the track and the Camber, that is, the inclination of the wheel plane to the vertical.

The consequences for the safety are dangerous because a wrong track setting leads to under-steering or over-steering in curves. During the lower steering, the car pushes almost over the front wheels to the corner exterior. In the case of oversteering, it is reversed, the rear can break out.

Another warning signal for a dangerously altered axle geometry is a stepped steering wheel or tyres that are worn out on one side. They no longer roll with the entire tread on the road, lose profile and liability - it also costs extra fuel.

The only solution is to measure the wheel alignment in the workshop Luton. The axis geometry is precisely measured at our Drive Ryte workshop in Luton using computers and modern electronic devices such as lasers and sensors or by using reflectors on the wheels.

Wheel alignment (toe-in, camber and castor) should always follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations.

By these values, toe in, camber and castor will then correctly set again by our experts. The caster has an influence on steerability and sprinting. If the lane and camber correspond to the specifications of the vehicle manufacturer, safety is also ensured. The car does no longer pull to the left or right, the tyres roll much better, the steering wheel is straight, and the fuel consumption drops.

The correctly adjusted track, camber and caster values ​​are decisive for the driving behaviour and characteristics of your car and therefore for your safety.

With an optical-electronic measuring and adjustment method, we can not only check and adjust the values ​​during wheel alignment but also check the entire axle geometry of the chassis and detect any deviations (for example, after start-up damage).

When should a wheel alignment be carried out?

A regular check is always useful. It is necessary if you notice problems with your car's driving behaviour, especially after hitting a kerb etc. or after a minor accident.

Signs of a defective wheel suspension and miss-alignment are:

  • Roaring noises from "underneath."
  • Squeaking noises in the curve
  • Oblique steering wheel angle
  • Pulling to the left or right
  • Spongy steering behaviour
  • Unevenly worn tyres
