Battery failure is one of the most common causes of vehicle breakdown. There is usually little or no warning, before a car battery fails. This is why, as it ages, making sure that your battery is checked regularly is essential.
Getting your battery checked by Borehamwood Tyres will provide you with information that can prevent premature failure and inconvenience. Appointments are available hourly and are free.
The average life expectancy of a car battery is five to seven years. Good driving habits can prolong the life of your car battery and help to prevent vehicle breakdown.
Driving over potholes, speed bumps or kerbs can knock your wheel alignment out. This can lead to uneven wear on your tyres and it could feel like your car is 'pulling' to one side. This in turn can lead to an increase in fuel consumption and premature wear on your tyres.
Correct wheel alignment ensures that the tyres are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other and that on a level straight road your car will travel in a true straight line.
Wheel alignment or tracking is one of the key tyre maintenance factors to ensure optimum performance, even tyre wear and a maximised tyre life.
An accurate alignment also provides safe and predictable vehicle control and road holding alongside a smoother and more comfortable ride.
The process of wheel alignment encompasses three elements which require monitoring and adjustment to ensure correct alignment on your vehicle.
