When it comes to wheel alignment and full vehicle servicing, we know our stuff. For more than 30 years, our experienced Auckland team has fine-tuned trucks, buses, motor homes, trailers, cranes and more.
HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO
A foundation member of the New Zealand Heavy Vehicle Wheel Alignment Association, we’re one of a handful of companies in Auckland able to carry out wheel alignments on trucks, buses, trailers and motor homes.
At our modern workshop facility in East Tamaki, our skilled operators precisely adjust your truck. Our comprehensive wheel alignment check involves setting the steering componentry for caster and toe, and alignment of the drive axle to the chassis.
Correct wheel alignment is essential for efficient fleet management. You’ll save money on tyres, fuel and running costs, and ensure your drivers’ safety. For the best performance, wheel alignment should be carried out at regular intervals – once a year or every 50,000 kms.
So if you’re looking for a one-stop-shop for top quality truck wheel alignment, vehicle servicing and repairs – rest assured, we’ll get the job done.
The technical stuff about wheel alignment
Why we align your vehicles wheels the way we do.
Caster has a profound effect on vehicle stability, steering and handling and is frequently the cause of driver complaints of vehicle wandering.
Toe in / Toe Out
From the front the wheels are angled in or out (pigeon-toed or splayed). If this is incorrectly set, rubber is scraped off the entire tyre tread as the tyres are not rolling, but in effect are being scrubbed along the road causing excessive tyre wear, extra fuel consumption and stressing steering componentry.
Drive Axle Alignment
Misalignment causes excessive wear on drive tyres and components. Steer tyres wear unevenly to compensate for the mistracking of the drive axle and fuel consumption increases.
