Wheel alignment is part of a standard automobile maintenance procedure that consists of adjusting the angles of wheels to the car manufacturer specifications. When the wheels are misaligned it can cause the vehicle to become off-centre, making it more difficult to steer. Drivers will notice that it takes more effort to steer their vehicles in a straight line when wheels are not aligned properly. This is the reason why you must get an immediate wheel alignment service in Cairns before matters get worse.

Besides rotating the tyres and getting an alignment to set things right, you should also re-balance the tyres. At SunCity Service Centre we offer an extensive wheel balancing service in Cairns, which is the process of equalizing the weight of the combined tire and wheel assembly so that it spins smoothly at high speed. The team will put the wheel/tire assembly on a balancer, which centres the wheel and spins it to determine where the weights should go.
Wheels and tires are never the same weight all around. The wheel’s valve stem hole will usually subtract a small amount of weight from one side of the wheel. Tires will also have slight weight imbalances. At high speeds, a tiny imbalance in weight can easily become a large imbalance in centrifugal force, causing the wheel/tire assembly to spin. This usually translates into a vibration in the car as well as some very irregular and damaging wear on the tires.
Over time, your tyres will have uneven tread wear just through normal driving. This is a result of just turning left and right, hitting bumps and holes you could not see or avoid, and driving down uneven road surfaces.
Well, besides rotating the tyres and getting an alignment to set things right, you should also re-balance the tyres. Even if you can’t feel vibrations, they are present. The uneven tread wear has created an imbalance that generates excessive heat and wears on your tyres. Considering the hundreds of dollars, you spent on your tyres, a re-balance is a wise and necessary investment.
