Wheel Alignment Terminology
Wheel alignment involves checking the direction and angle of the wheels. The misalignment positions are often described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.
“Toe” refers to whether the front of the tyres are closer or further apart than the rear of the tyres. Different types of vehicles need different toe settings to allow for the way that wheels pull either towards each other or apart.
“Camber” is the inward or outward tilt of a tyre. The camber is set by the vehicle manufacturer, and can be affected by potholes in the road and may need to be adjusted periodically.
Our price for our SNAP ON four-wheel laser alignment includes an inspection and the front toe adjustment only. Additional charges may apply if further adjustments are required including any rear wheel adjustments. You will be advised by one of our award-winning qualified customer services team at the time of inspection prior to any work being carried out. After all its your money and we don’t spend it!
