Tyres and wheel alignment in Melbourne

If you have observed any difficulties while steering, pulling to one side, or unusual vibrations you should have your car serviced. At Apple Auto Care, we use expert equipment to check and service your car’s wheel alignment.

Every vehicle has a specific steering track set for its front wheels and if this isn’t aligned properly, it can cause your tyres to wear rapidly or unevenly. Wheel alignment can be affected by driving over kerbs and potholes, and daily wear and tear.

Improper wheel alignment becomes more obvious when the outside or inside edge of the tyre become damaged.

At Apple Auto Care, we recommend you get your tyre alignment checked every six months or if you have any trouble while steering.

Both general and major car services will involve changing the oil and oil filters, fluid inspection, tyre rotation, checking lubrication, and emissions. Many of the services will vary depending on your car’s handbook.
