Tyres and wheel alignment in Worcester

Wheel alignment refers to the direction your wheels are pointing and has a huge effect on how a car feels to drive.

A correctly aligned vehicle will feel stable but a badly aligned car will want to pull all over the road.

There are three main aspects of wheel alignment: Camber, caster and toe. By attaching specialist equipment, it is possible to read the angles for these and adjustments can then be made to the car’s suspension and steering geometry.

The days of the trammel gauge, which ensured the front wheels were in line, are long gone and Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic now uses four wheel laser wheel alignment.

This allows our technicians to check so much more and the secondary angles include numerous other adjustments, including:

  • SAI (Steering Axis Inclination) - left and right
  • Included angle - left and right
  • Toe out on turns - left and right
  • Maximum Turns - left and right
  • Toe curve change - left and right
  • Track width difference
  • Wheelbase difference
  • Front ride height - left and right
  • Rear ride height - left and right
  • Frame angle
  • Setback – front and rear

The latest development in this area is camera wheel alignment. If your car has active headlights and you have been involved in a minor accident, you will need the car set up with camera wheel alignment technology.

What our customers say

I couldn’t rate the boys at this garage higher if I tried; they were friendly, polite, super helpful and were absolutely not out to fleece me of extra money which is the feeling I so often get with other garages.

5/5

The whole team were so friendly, this was the first time I’ve ever had to go to a garage and hate doing these sort of things on my own but it was so simple and only took half an hour, really really impressed and will definitely be returning.

5/5

Excellent customer service and great communication from dropping my car off to collecting it when the repair was complete. It is great to have a local garage who are honest and do all they can to get you back on the road as soon as possible.

5/5

Continued good service from all members of staff. A very friendly and helpful bunch.

5/5

Really helpful, reliable and fair prices. They are always looking for sensible ways to help without running up huge bills. When we found we had a flat tyre on a Saturday morning just before a big journey, they sent someone out to fix it, even though that took them way past closing time.

Highly recommend. Not only do they talk the talk, they walk the walk. Cost, time and delivery first class. Full of good advice and they kept in contact throughout the repair.

The big thing for me with a garage is trust. Every time I have taken my car in the work has been done superbly and the bill has been fair. I would highly recommend Worcester Mobile Mechanic to anyone - enough said!

Great mechanics. Honest, trustworthy service. Very thorough and explained everything that needed doing. Provides photo evidence that the jobs are being done.  

Very professional and very friendly. Fixed my van quickly. Highly recommended.

Dave and his team bend over backwards to help you get back on the road. They love helping people with Japanese imports.

MOT carried out at a really late notice. Brilliant guys who offered sound advice and took the time to explain all advisories. Won't hesitate to use again.

5/5

Brilliant team who have done wonders to my Mazda Bongo and gone above and beyond. I couldn't ask for more. Thank you.

5/5

Absolute life savers! Realised my MOT expired the evening before we were due to leave for holiday. Called up after trying almost 10 previous garages and they couldn’t have been more helpful. They fitted me in within an hour and we were able to leave for our holiday on time. The man I spoke to on the phone and the lady in reception were by far the most friendly and polite garage owners I have ever met and they even offered to make me a coffee while I waited. Highly recommend.

5/5

Great customer service from David and his team. They managed to fit me in for a MOT and a small job at short notice. I just had to leave the vehicle with them for most of the day.

5/5

We like this place so much that we drive from Runcorn for them to do any work on our Bongo.

5/5

These guys are amazing. My Ford Focus wouldn't start and had to be recovered to my house because no garages would take it. I called David and WMM came out the same day, collected it and diagnosed it. They realised it was a known fault that Ford were aware of and it was cheaper for me to get Ford to fix it under their goodwill scheme. Absolutely amazing service. They did themselves out of the repair work because they care more about what's best for their customers.

5/5

We have never had such a professional, excellent service, and would not hesitate to recommend David and his team for their outstanding customer service, honesty and support.

5/5

Exceptional service & very friendly staff.

5/5

I've been taking my car to WMM since 2009 and they are always reliable and full of good advice.
