Wheel Alignment & Wheel Balancing  

Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle. At London Star Auto Ltd Mot Garage and repair Centre in Camberwell we will make sure your car wheels are balanced and aligned at a  minimum fuss.

•Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment, or tracking, is the process of ensuring your vehicle’s wheels are set to the optimum position, as per the car manufacturer’s specifications, so  tyres wear evenly.

It is also important to get your wheel alignment checked annually to ensure you get the most out of your tyres and to pass your MOT.

•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.

•Looking After Tyres

Your routine vehicle maintenance schedule should include a tyre check.

For maximum tyre life check your tyre pressure settings regularly.

An LSA check includes tyre condition, pressures & wheel alignment.

No-appointment necessary, operated on a drive in basis or give us a ring an dbook an appointment.

LSA recommends you check your tyres every 2-3 weeks.

•Check for External Damage

Cuts, lumps and bumps are often caused by an impact between the tyre and a kerb, pothole or object in the road. If your tyre has any of these symptoms then you must have the tyre checked as quickly as possible by a tyre specialist, as this sort of damage can result in sudden tyre failure.

Wheel alignment too is a very important step in maintaining and prolonging the life of your tyres. Kerbing or potholes affect your vehicle’s wheel alignment settings which can lead to rapid or un-even tyre wear.

The car manufacturer will set your vehicle’s wheel alignment at the factory, so after driving it’s worth a regular check to help prevent premature tyre wear, generally caused by incorrect wheel alignment setting.

Also, emergency braking can sometime leave your tyres with a ‘flat spot’. This can be another reason for premature tyre removal.

•It’s a Driver's responsibility

UK law requires that your vehicle is fitted with the correct type and size of tyres for the vehicle type you are driving and for the purpose it is being used. you must fit  the right tyres,

New regulations like Corporate and Social Responsibility and the Duty of Care regulation place even greater focus on the need to carry out regular tyre checks as part of a routine maintenance plan. Lsa wilgive you a free tyre check service on a drive in basis, where the condition of a tyre is inspected, tyre tread depths are measured and tyre pressures checked and corrected.

So there are many different reasons for tyre wear. Your tyres don't just get worn through age and use, but through emergency braking, under-inflation or over-inflation and can be easily damaged by poorly maintained roads. And if your wheels are misaligned, one edge of the tyre can wear more rapidly than the other.

We want to help you maintain your tyres in the best condition possible

•Spare tyres

The purpose of a spare tyre is to provide a replacement if one of the tyres on your vehicle is flat or damaged. This means that it is vital to check your spare tyre as carefully as those in day to day use.
