Tructyre ATS have invested heavily in Tructrak – our specialist division dedicated to on-site commercial wheel alignment. Tructrak’s highly trained and experienced technicians use sophisticated laser technology to realign your axles to the manufacturer’s factory specification.
Wheels become out of alignment for a variety of reasons: our road surfaces are continuing to deteriorate, levels of debris are increasing, the wheel may have nudged the kerb, or the vehicle may regularly run off-road.
If your vehicle’s wheels are misaligned, the engine has to work harder to overcome the increased rolling resistance. This has an adverse effect on both the tyres and fuel consumption, with increased stress delivered to mechanical components. Safety is also compromised if the driver has to constantly steer to keep a straight line.
Our skilled technicians first correct tyre pressure and perform a thorough tread wear and tyre damage inspection. Then with sophisticated and regularly calibrated laser technology, we accurately align your steering axles and trailer axles to the manufacturer’s factory specification. Our comprehensive mobile truck alignment service includes: puncture repair, wheel rotation, turning on the rim and twinning, and regrooving if required. All designed to ensure we do everything possible to reduce friction and minimise tyre wear.
How often should Tructrak perform truck alignment? The Department of Transport recommends the best practice is to have a truck alignment once a year. Should our proactive tyre maintenance detect uneven tyre wear, it’s time to carry out an on-site wheel alignment. We also recommend an inspection when we fit new tyres, to ensure you receive the maximum return on your investment.
If the toe-settings are out of tolerance, the results are:
A trailer with axles out of square will require constant correction to the steering as well as taking extra road width.
Out of square axles produce:
