Wheel Alignment

Bring your car or van into ETC Auto Centre for wheel alignment in Eastbourne.

Your wheel alignment (sometimes known as wheel tracking) should be checked every 6 months or so, more often if you regularly drive long distances or drive over bumpy roads. Wheels that are not correctly aligned will have a detrimental effect on your vehicle’s steering, braking, tyre wear, fuel consumption, and overall safety.

We can carry out this service on rally and race cars as well as high-performance vehicles on our 5-tonne ramp which is flush to the floor to accommodate vehicles with low or lowered suspension.

Wheel Alignment

It may surprise you to know that the wheels on your vehicle aren’t straight, nor should they be. Wheel alignment can be affected by hitting a kerb or a pothole at speed, or by wear and tear on the steering or suspension components; there are three angles which are applied to your car wheels and each has a particular and different function to improve your contact with the road surface and vehicle performance.

The toe angle of your front wheels is crucial, and, when imagined from above, can be thought of as your wheels pointing outwards (toe-out), or inwards (toe-in). Most vehicle manufacturers recommend a small degree of toe-in for maximum stability at speed. Toe-out is not recommended for normal cars or vans because it makes the steering over-sensitive and dangerous.
