Wheel and Car Alignment

Wheel and car alignment or tracking is important to the health of your tyres. Checking if your car has any wheel alignment symptoms can save you expensive maintenance costs in the long run. Hitting anything in the road such as a pothole or a kerb might knock the alignment out. Misaligned wheels will cause additional friction and wear on your tyres, reducing their lifetime effectiveness.

What is the process of wheel alignment?

During the process of 4 wheel alignment we will ensure your wheels and tyres are set correctly to the car manufacturers specifications. It’s a vital part of car maintenance to ensure safety and can also save you money by reducing the vehicles fuel consumption.  
At DCM Tyres, we use Hunter technology, the world leader in car wheel alignment service equipment. The Hunter HawkEye equipment is renowned for its superior accuracy. The laser wheel alignment system checks the entire geometry to highlight any misalignment. We provide Hunter wheel alignment services at our Shaftesbury and Sturminster Newton Service Centres.
