Wheel alignment and balancing

Both wheel alignment and wheel balancing plays an important part when it comes to ensuring your safety on the roads.

Wheel alignment is the process where the angles of the wheels are adjusted and set according to the car manufacturers specifications. When a wheel alignment is done, it is important to make sure that the wheels are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the road. In some cases such as motor sport, the mechanic can alter the alignment angles well beyond the car manufacturers specifications.

A brand new car’s when alignment is usually checked and adjusted when it leaves the factory. Wheel alignment generally requires the squaring of a cars wheels and axles so that they are moving in the same direction. The mechanic will adjust the suspension angles known as the toe, thrust, chamber and caster. These angles influence both the position and movement of the tyres. A technician will also ensure that the steering wheel in centered.

The type of alignment you will receive will mainly depend on your cars suspension. Four-wheel alignment is for front wheel drive as well as all wheel drive cars; these cars have independent or adjustable rear suspension. A front-end alignment is used where only the axles of the components are adjusted.

It is very easy for a car to lose their alignment by hitting a pothole, bumping into concrete parking stands or even hitting the curb. This will cause a fair amount of wear and tear. When your cars wheels are out of alignment, it will compromise the ability to steer your car as well as your safety. The car will pull and drift to one side of the road when you let go of the steering wheel. This can also have a huge impact on the fuel consumption and it may be very difficult to take evasive action such as braking in an emergency situation.
 
It is recommended that a wheel alignment is done every 10 000 kilometers or every six months, whichever occurs first. A proper wheel alignment will start and end with a test drive. The tyres will also be checked thoroughly for wear and even wear patterns.
 
An alignment machine has cameras attached to clamp like devices that are attached to the wheels of the car. These cameras are linked to a computer that helps you make exact measurements. When a wheel alignment is completed a mechanic will provide the car owner with a print out that will feature before and after images of the suspension alignment.

Wheel balancing on the other hand is done when you replace your car tyres. Wheel balancing refers to even distribution of weight around a revolving tyre and wheel assembly. This ensures that both the wheel rim and tyre are in balance.

When car wheels are not balanced, they will produce vibrations that are very uncomfortable to drive in. It will also place severe strain on the wheel bearings and suspension components, damage steering components, cause premature wearing of the suspension components and other rotating parts and tyres. This will result in an increase of fuel consumption, your safety as well as being very expensive.

Wheel balancing ensure both an enjoyable and smooth ride and in the long run will safe you time and money when you look after your car’s tyres.

Tyres are balanced in car factories and repair shops by two methods. The two methods are known as static balancers and dynamic balancers.

Calibrated wheel balancers are used to balance car wheels. These machines have self-calibrating electronics that will pick up any vibrations at a low speed. The equipment must be able achieve static and dynamic balance. The graphic displays make it easier to read and understand the information and reduce the chance of making any mistakes. The wheels are turned to determine where the weight should go cause the wheels are never the exact same weight all around.

Neglecting both wheel alignment and balancing is a definite road safety concern on our bad roads and therefore much attention must be paid to wheel and tyre requirements to ensure you and your family are safe on the roads.
