Hi all, need your advices. Had changed my 4 tyres recently, do I need to get my alignment done also?? Had done the rotation during changing. My steering wheel was tilted a bit now.

If you hold your steering wheel straight, but your car is drifting to the side, alignment won't help.
If you let go your steering wheel, it automatically turn slightly to the side, you need to do alignment.

Find a straight, flat road and test. Of course, look out for traffic..

Recently, I needed to do alignment, after I changed my rims & tires from 14" to 16". Cost $70,at Kenny wheel alignment.

in case you really need a fast turnaround time to get the wheels aligned, you may go to Aesop Automotive Centre. i have been to both workshops which are located in AMK. the Malay uncle is just as good as Kenny. slightly cheaper as well.  :D

Hi, got a bit confused. 

 

My car will drift to one side if my steering wheel is straight. In order to drive straight, i need to turn the steering wheel slightly to the right. So i guess its the same as your first point, meaning alignment wont help? 

 

So what can be done for that? Sorry noob driver here.  [sweatdrop]

Good to do, one reason for myself is to make sure my new Tyres r align n balance properly so as not to hv new Tyres wear uneven fm day one.

N anyway I change Tyres once every 2 yrs, so doing alignment is also part of routine check to make sure car Alingment is good😄

Some wouldn't do, still ok.

Hi, probably I didn't explain properly due to my poor English. Nonetheless, please search some videos from YouTube, perhaps you will understand better. Essentially, alignment only adjust your tires, to prevent uneven wear and tear. For your case, need to align your steering wheel which normal workshop can do the job.

Thanks for the reply. [thumbsup]  I get it now, i always thought that wheel alignment and steering are together, as in one single process.  [sweatdrop]

Went to KN Garage for alignment this morning. Spent $30. But think nothing improved. My steering wheel still tilted. Went back to the shop in the afternoon to rectify, the guy just took my car for a ride outside and came back and told me it was rectified. I asked him what did he do, and he was unable to answer. Drove back and found out the steering wheel is still tilted. Totally not recommend to this shop.

Bought the tyres from AL Tyres and they recommended me to this workshop.

You can try JC wheel dynamics at Jurong east. Can look for Ah xiong. I've been there twice and it's pretty good.

 

You can google for more reviews to decide.

Based on my understanding of wheel alignment, it's only adjusting the position of your tyres. It wouldn't correct any problems with your steering wheel. So if you need to turn slightly left/right to maintain a straight line, probably need to get the steering adjusted. If it's not too far off, why not leave it? My car also has a slight drift, but managed to pass inspection so leaving it alone.

Went back to the workshop again to rectify the problem, the staff just change my left tyre to right, right tyre to left. And told me it's will be alright. But after test drive, the car still moving to the left and the steering wheel maintain tilted.

Had contacted AL Tyres to assist and they called the workshop to redo the alignment for me again tomorrow.

Very piss off with them. Hope the workshop can able to fix it tomorrow.
