Tructyre have invested heavily in Tructrak – our specialist division dedicated to on-site commercial wheel alignment. Tructrak’s highly trained and experienced technicians use the latest laser technology, to align your fleet’s wheels to within the manufacturers’ specifications.
Wheels become out of alignment for a variety of reasons, for example, our road surfaces are continuing to deteriorate, levels of debris are increasing, the wheel may have nudged the kerb, or the vehicle may regularly run off-road.
If your vehicle’s wheels are misaligned, the engine has to work harder to overcome the increased rolling resistance. This has an adverse affect on both the tyres and fuel consumption, with increased stress delivered to mechanical components. Safety is also compromised if the driver has to constantly steer to keep a straight line.
Our skilled technicians first correct pressures and perform detailed tyre inspections. Then with sophisticated and regularly calibrated laser technology, accurately align your steering axles to the manufacturers’ specifications, and ensure your trailer axles are square to the chassis. Our comprehensive one-stop service includes puncture repairs, turning on the rim, wheel rotation or re-grooving if required. All designed to ensure we do everything possible to reduce friction and maximise your tyre life.
How often should Tructrak perform a wheel alignment? The Department of Transport recommends the best practise is to have an inspection once a year. If our proactive tyre monitoring detects uneven wear, it’s time to carry out an alignment. We recommend an inspection when we fit new tyres, to ensure you receive the maximum return on your investment.

Benefits of correct wheel alignment are:
How misalignment affects performance
Steered axles – incorrect toe-in/toe-out
If the toe-settings are out of tolerance, the results are:
Trailer axles – out of square
A trailer with axles out of square, will require constant correction to the steering as well as taking extra road width.
Out of square axles produce:
