Realignment usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes. This will depend on how badly out of alignment the wheels are. This is also used to check the angle and direction, where the wheels are set in accordance with, the manufacturer’s specifications.

Luke’s Tyres now provide the latest high tech Four Wheel Digital Alignment Machine which we use. This machine is much more advanced than our previous set up as this it’s now aligned by a ramp. It’s more accurate because it’s a Digital Laser Alignment and now has a print out showing, the before and after alignment.

Why Alignment is Neccessary

Wheel Alignment improves the safety of the vehicle whilst driving. This improves stability of the car from pulling to the left or the right.

Does misalignment affect Tyres?

Tyres are definitely affected. This can be clearly seen with extra wear on the corners of the affected tyres.

How we provide alignment

Luke’s Tyres use a 2 Wheel Alignment to measure angles of the wheels. Our professional technician will align the wheels as per the manufacturer’s original specification.

Can Misalignment Cause Noise

Generally, any noise coming from underneath the vehicle when driving will usually be associated with tyres. Noises aren’t really associated with tracking.

How Wheel Alignment is Affected

Bushes, Springs and Suspension affect the movement and noise. Going over potholes and bumps in the road will change the alignment gradually.

How will I Know if the wheels are Misaligned?

The car may seem to drive fine, but we would advise getting a professional technician from Luke’s Tyres to diagnose this situation. 

Causes of Steering Wheel Vibration

This is not due to alignment. Vibration at increasing speeds or a heavy vibration in the seats or footwell, is a sign that the wheels need balancing.

Does Tyre pressure affect Alignment?

Yes. Tyre pressure can affect wheel alignment. Tyre pressure can definitely be affected by drastic fluctuating weather conditions.
