Tyre safety: The vital role of correct wheel alignment

By autotech-nic on October 13, 2023

TyreSafe, the UK’s tyre safety charity, has been running its “Safe and Save” campaign as a part of this year’s Tyre Safety Month, encouraging motorists to prioritise tyre safety, save money, and reduce risks associated with driving on underinflated tyres.

Equipment specialist Straightset reminds garages of the vital role correct wheel alignment also plays in maintaining even tyre wear, fuel efficiency and enhanced braking and says that the benefit of wheel alignment checks should be promoted to garage customers.

Invest in quality equipment

Choose a reliable and accurate system that best fits your requirements.


Ensure technicians know how to use the equipment effectively.


Promote your wheel alignment services to existing customers & highlight the benefits – improved tyre life, fuel efficiency and safety.

Regular maintenance

Ensure accuracy and reliability by keeping equipment maintained with a trusted supplier. Up-t0-date OEM vehicle alignment data, regular calibration are recommended to provide consistent results.

Straightset is known for its Supertracker wheel alignment offering and was recently appointed UK partner for Beissbarth. To see the systems for yourself, you can visit Straightset’s Wheel alignment training studio due to open in early November or contact them on 01909 480055, email
