Incorrect wheel alignment and the environment – what’s the damage?

Incorrect wheel alignment can have many consequences, from the cost of correction to the reduction in braking efficiency, but did you know that it also impacts the environment?

In an increasingly ecologically conscious society, you might be surprised by the affect that incorrect wheel alignment has on the environment and it’s all to do with incorrect pressure.  When wheels are incorrectly aligned it puts undue pressure on the tyres which in turn causes them to lean into one another.  This means your vehicle is working much harder because the resistance on the road surface makes it tougher to drive in a straight line.

This extra work your vehicle is doing means that you are burning more fuel that necessary – a costly fault that impacts both your pocket and the environment.
