Wheel Alignment by First Stop Spanner Works

If you’re searching for a wheel alignment in Oxford, you may already know that correctly aligned wheels are absolutely essential for safe and comfortable driving. But did you know that wheel alignment can also save you money in a couple of ways? Firstly, poorly aligned tyres wear out faster and need to be replaced more often. Secondly, they can also decrease fuel mileage by up to 10%, meaning you have to fill up more often.

The solution is to have your wheels properly aligned—and then keep them that way with an annual wheel alignment by First Stop Spanner Works. Our highly skilled technicians use state-of-the-art technology to ensure your steering is centred and that all four wheels are parallel, sitting flat on the road.

Frequently asked questions

No, it's not the same.

Alignment involves setting the wheels on each axle in parallel, and the axles parallel to each other, adjusting wheel angles so that the car steering does not drift to one side, as well as ensuring driver comfort and good grip for the tyres, thus guaranteeing safety at the wheel.

Balancing is a mechanical process of adjusting the wheels to prevent vehicle vibration at any speed, no matter what type of driving is used.

The modern car is built for comfort, performance and handling. In order to achieve and maintain the best ride possible, the steering and suspension needs to be measured and adjusted within the motor manufacturer’s specifications. This can only be done by measuring all four wheels and having a proper full four wheel alignment measurement.

Wheel alignment can be affected by hitting the kurb or a large pothole in the road or travelling regularly on gravel roads. If alignment is out, it can cause excessive wear to your tyres and problems with steering or suspension.
