Did you know?
Incorrect wheel alignment is one of the main causes of tyre wear
1mm misalignment reduces mileage performance by 7%
When wheels and axles are not aligned,
mechanical parts suffer from increased stress and premature wear
If alignment is not correctly adjusted,
rolling resistance from the tyre increases
Wheel and axle alignment also help
vehicle handling, safety and driver comfort
Improved fuel economy
Poor wheel alignment increases the rolling resistance of tyres. About 30% of a vehicle’s fuel is used to overcome the tyres rolling resistance and just a small amount of misalignment can increase fuel consumption dramatically.
Savings of up to 5% have already been proven with some operators claiming more depending on the vehicles operations.
Maximise tyre life
Poor wheel alignment causes uneven tyre wear resulting in premature tyre replacement and increased running costs.
Customers who have added this service to their maintenance programme have already reported a 30% increase in tyre life making the wheel alignment service self funding.
Reduce your carbon footprint
CO2 emissions are the prime greenhouse gas responsible for global warming and the industry is increasingly being asked to consider their environmental impact.
As CO2 emissions are directly proportional to fuel consumption, having the wheels aligned on your commercial vehicle by Collier Commercial Laser Wheel Alignment can have an immediate impact in reducing total carbon emissions.
