Four Wheel Alignment :
At Village Car Care, we have an advanced 4 wheel alignment machine and trained technicians who use the latest equipment to complete all work to the very highest standards. Correctly aligned wheels could see you enjoying fuel savings of up to 10%, and could increase the life of your tyres by as much as 25%.
Wheel alignment, or tyre tracking, is a standard part of vehicle maintenance, and consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they meet the specification set out by the manufacturer. This can help to reduce tyre wear, and can help the vehicle to travel straight without pulling to one side. We can also alter tyre alignment angles beyond the manufacturer’s specification if you are looking to achieve a specific handling characteristic, for example if your vehicle is being used for motorsport or driven off-road.
Why is wheel alignment important?
Incorrect wheel alignment will cause rapid irregular tyre wear. The normal alignment on most vehicles is designed to minimise wear and tear and maximise driver and passenger comfort. Correct wheel alignment saves on fuel costs (up to 10%) and increases tyre life by up to 25%. It will also improve handling and driving safety by reducing steering and stability problems.
Why does wheel misalignment happen?
Wheel alignment can be affected by driving against a kerb, hitting a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components. Misalignment can also happen when suspension components are replaced.
How long does it take to realign my wheels?
Most front and rear wheel alignment problems can be solved in about 30 minutes, depending on vehicle.

What our customers think
“I have used this garage several times and they are always friendly, polite, helpful and the service is great. They have managed to fit my car in last minute, despite being extremely busy ...they are always very accommodating. I recommended the garage to my mum who then had her car serviced here and was equally impressed. I wouldn't consider going to any other garage....”
“I had not used Village Car Care before for my MOT and general servicing. I live about a mile away so I thought I would give them a try. What a pleasant surprise! My MOT was carried out at exactly the time I booked and all was explained in detail following. Based on that experience, I decided to have two new tyres fitted. Again, the service was excellent, the tyres fitted the next day. I also had a wheel alignment done at the same time. My car came back better that ever. The ride, stability and tracking were spot on! It felt like a new car! So far so good, so I booked in for an interim service. Again, my car was taken in exactly at the time booked and all issues were fully explained in a friendly and sympathetic way. I highly recommend Village Car Care. They are now my 'go to' garage.”
