You may not know it, but hitting a pot hole or kerb, even at slow speeds, can have an impact your Caterhams wheel alignment, also known as tracking. If your car wheels are not aligned correctly then you will impact the handling of your car and worst still you will wear down the tyres faster than if you have correct wheel alignment.
More often than not, having the front wheels checked for alignment will solve any problems. However at Williams we have a state of the art laser guided alignment system that can check all 4 wheels on your car. You may have heard of toe-in or toe-out and camber before, these are the terms associated with the correct position of your car tyres.
Our expert technicians always check against the wheel alignment settings specified the car manufacturer. Incorrect wheel alignment can be caused by hitting pot holes or kerbing your car. Not only does this result in an increase in tyre wear, there can also be unseen damage to your suspension or other critical components and we would always provide a comprehensive check of these components during a wheel alignment inspection.
It's worth checking your car tyres on a regular basis to look out for any unusual wear such as premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder of the tyre.
We can set up and check your Caterhams tracking at any time. Packages start from £80. Call us for more info on 01454 315112.
