Common causes of wheel misalignment

Shocks: Sudden shocks at high speeds due to driving over potholes or speedbumps can impact your car wheel angles.

Worn-out vehicle components: Car components have an intended service life. This, however, depends on factors, like driving style, conditions, etc. Old shocks and springs can cause wheel misalignment.

Height modifications: If you alter your vehicle's ground clearance, it is imperative to change the other settings as well. Otherwise, it puts undue pressure on your car wheels, affecting their angles as well.

Inaccurate tyre pressure: Driving with incorrect tyre pressure may lead to wheel misalignment and cause damage to the suspension system.

Toe, caster and camber

Toe: Refers to the car wheel angles going toward or away from the centreline when observed from a bird's eye point-of-view. This facilitates optimal vehicle control and handling.

Caster: Is the steering wheel axle's angle when viewed from the side of the vehicle. It facilitates straight-line driving efficiency and cornering precision. Thus, an accurate caster angle is instrumental for your on-road safety.

Camber: This refers to the outward or inward angle of the car wheels when viewed from the front.
