What is Wheel Alignment?
When a new or used tyre is fitted to a vehicle, the tyre must make even contact with the surface of the road to ensure even distribution of the load of the vehicle across the surface of the tyre. Wheel Alignment ensures that your tyres are positioned and set to the ideal requirements of your vehicle to allow for even contact with the surface of the road. A series of components on your vehicle’s suspension called Camber, Caster and Toe, are optimised to the specifications of vehicle manufacturers, to complete your wheel alignment.
At Falcon Tyre Centre, our wheel alignment technicians have the benefit of combining their years of experience with he latest in wheel alignment technology. Come through to any of our stores for a free wheel alignment check…

Maintenance and tyre inspections at a reputable tyre dealer should be conducted at least once in 6 months or every 8000 km. One should also check their wheel alignment whenever a tyre or rim has been replaced.
