Do I need wheel alignment after a tyre change?

Yes, it is recommended to get a wheel alignment after a tyre change.

When you have new tyres fitted on your vehicle, it can affect the alignment of your wheels, which if it not set up correctly can cause uneven tyre wear, steering issues, and a reduction in fuel efficiency.

Wheel alignment ensures that the angles of the wheels are adjusted to the manufacturer's specifications, which will help your vehicle drive smoothly and handle correctly.

It is also important to note that hitting a curb or a pothole can also throw your wheels out of alignment.

If you experience any changes in your vehicle's handling or notice uneven tyre wear, it is a good idea to have your alignment checked.
