Save money with a wheel alignment

And that old reliable tip? “Keep your car aligned.” But what may surprise you is how much it could actually save you!

If your tyres are just 0.43mm out of alignment, it’s like dragging your tyre sideways for an additional 60kms every year. The end cost could be an additional $187 in petrol plus $70 in extra tyre wear each year.

You can’t eyeball alignment, so spend a few dollars on a tread-depth gauge, available at all auto outlets and check all four wheels periodically. If one side of the tyre is not as worn as the other side, you’re due for an alignment.

Or ensure your Blue Toro Mobile Mechanic checks your alignment at your next service.
