Bosch Wheel Alignment Service.

Wheel alignment, commonly referred to as wheel tracking, is a service undertaken by specialist technicians which works to ensure the optimum alignment of a vehicle’s wheels according to manufacturer specifications. This procedure is most often undertaken at the same time as seasonal tyre changes, though, it can be performed at any time.

Wheel misalignment is a common issue experienced by a number of road users across the UK, caused by anything from driving over potholes to suspension wear and tear. If left unadjusted over significant periods of time, misalignment can contribute to rapid, irregular tyre wear, and may impact the vehicle’s handling – leading to safety issues, and expensive repairs. Regular wheel alignment can assist greatly in avoiding this, ensuring your vehicle is performing optimally.

Bosch Auto Service’s Bosch wheel alignment service makes use of a combination of specialist techniques and advanced technology to ensure optimum wheel alignment and performance across a wide variety of vehicles. Alignments are commonly recommended during tyre changes, following accidents of any severity, or if any characteristic tyre wear patterns are noticed by either yourself or your technician.

During an alignment, our highly trained technicians work to adjust the suspension and steering arms of your vehicle. This process also allows for a visual inspection of the wheel, and suspension, meaning any problematic parts or obvious damage may be detected before worsening.

As is expected, our Bosch wheel alignment service, in line with all of our offerings, is conducted by our accredited technicians with great care, and to the highest standard.

Increased Fuel Efficiency – misaligned wheels often struggle to function synchronously as they should, negatively impacting vehicle performance and fuel consumption. Alignment ensures wheels are working effectively, significantly increasing fuel efficiency in the process.

Reduction in Part Wear and Tear – correctly aligned wheels allow for the efficient function of both brakes and tyres, resulting in reduced wear and tear across the board.

Significantly Increased Tyre Lifespan – our Bosch wheel alignment service accurately ensures optimum wheel position, eliminating the uneven tyre wear caused by ‘toeing in’ and ‘toeing out’. Even tyre wear greatly increases the lifespan of tyres, cutting down on replacement costs, and helping your vehicle perform optimally.

Reduction in Vehicle Maintenance Costs – the reduction in wear and tear to both brakes and tyres resulting from wheel alignment assists greatly in reducing vehicle maintenance costs.

How do I know if my wheel alignment is out?

Wheel misalignment is very common and may be caused by anything from driving over a pothole to suspension wear and tear. The most common symptoms of this issue include;

Uneven or rapid tyre wear – tyres misaligned inwards, or ‘toed in’ tend to show excessive wear on the outer shoulder, whilst ‘toed out’ tyres show excessive wear on the inner shoulder

Excessive fuel consumption – when wheels are misaligned, they do not work together effectively, putting strain on the engine and reducing fuel efficiency

Handling issues, particularly unprompted pulling to one side – misaligned wheels can lead to the vehicle pulling left or right when driving straight ahead

Clearly audible squealing noises when driving at low speeds – this may be a result of the excessive wear wheel misalignment can cause in the steering and suspension system

If your car is showing any of these symptoms or is due a wheel alignment, contact Bosch Auto Services today to book your vehicle in with one of our experienced technicians, or for further information regarding any of our services.

What are the benefits of a wheel alignment check?

Is wheel alignment the same as tracking?

‘Tracking’ is a commonly used alternative term used to describe the process of wheel alignment, during which the wheels of a vehicle are properly aligned, and in an optimum position in line with the manufacturer’s specifications. This procedure is most often undertaken at the same time as seasonal tyre changes.

How often does my car need an alignment?

Alignment frequency recommendations vary according to manufacturer’s recommendations, although most technicians generally recommend that vehicles undergo wheel alignments once per year. This guidance may not be applicable to vehicles driven in harsh conditions, or through streets with many potholes on a regular basis.

The following symptoms may indicate that a vehicle is in need of a wheel alignment;
Uneven or rapid tyre wear
Excessive fuel consumption
Handling issues, particularly unprompted pulling to one side
Clearly audible squealing noises when driving at low speeds
