Glenrands launched a new service to help local drivers reduce their motoring costs and improve their safety on the roads.

Thanks to the company’s investment in a state-of-the-art manufacturer approved Hunter four-wheel alignment system, drivers will be able to have their wheel alignment measured quickly and accurately. Any subsequent adjustments will then help to reduce any premature or uneven tyre wear, cut fuel bills and correct any distracting pull or drift issues.

“Many motorists are unaware of the importance of having a four wheel alignment service on their vehicles, but the benefits of motoring cost savings and the precautionary safety measure it offers, should not be ignored.,” explains Ross Brunyee of Glenrands. “With our new Hunter alignment service we will be able to see in a matter of minutes the extent of any misalignment on customers’ cars. By correcting these errors we will return the car to the manufacturers’ original settings and ensure that tyre life and fuel economy are maximised but also the car geometry and handling”.

Glenrands is an experienced independent service center dedicated to maintaining and repairing all Land Rover and Range Rover products. We have invested heavily in the most current manufacturer approved equipment and always work hard to stay abreast of modern technology in order to provide the best possible repair for you.

Indeed, such is the excitement about the Hunter wheel aligner, that not only does it win prestigious technology and innovation awards worldwide, but at servicing level can deliver a rapid, accurate and transparent service that motorists in the UK and Ireland are now asking for by name!

What is Wheel Alignment?

Wheel alignment is an essential vehicle service that ensures your car operates efficiently, comfortably and most importantly safely. It achieves this by making sure all of your wheels point in exactly the right direction in relation to each other and your direction of travel.

This is an increasingly important service for modern cars. The majority now have many adjustable components within the steering and suspension systems, which can cause misalignment when not set properly.

During a wheel alignment service, we accurately measure up to 14 primary wheel angles. We then compare them with the original specifications detailed by your car manufacturer. We can correct any differences found by adjusting your car’s steering and suspension settings. This helps to maximise your fuel efficiency, reduce any uneven tyre wear and improve driving comfort and safety.

Why does my car need a Hunter wheel alignment?

Have you ever noticed your tyres wearing more on one side than the other? Perhaps your car feels as if it pulls to one side? Or maybe your steering wheel isn’t straight?

These are all possible symptoms of misalignment and often lead to higher running costs of your car. Because, your tyres need replacing sooner and your fuel bills will be higher.

Misalignment can occur easily. Hitting a kerb or driving over a pothole are common causes. Even replacing a tyre or simple day to day wear and tear can all lead to your wheel misalignment.

Keep a regular check on your alignment and you will minimise these negative effects. Ensuring your car in the best possible condition.

What are the benefits of a Hunter wheel alignment?

Proper alignment benefits your car in many ways:

  1. Improved tyre life – misalignment is a major cause of uneven or premature tyre wear. Which is why correct alignment of your wheels can significantly extend the life of your tyres
  2. Improved fuel consumption – cars suffering from misalignment will have a higher fuel consumption as their wheels ‘drag’ along the road surface. Correctly setting the wheels straight reduces this resistance and gives you more miles per tank.
  3. Greener motoring – with improved fuel consumption and lower tyre wear, your impact on the environment will also improve. As a result your own personal carbon footprint reduces by emitting less CO2 emissions.
  4. Save money – by extending the life of your tyres and improving your fuel consumption. Correct alignment will help lower your motoring costs
  5. Better handling – wheel alignment can help correct many handling problems and deliver a more enjoyable driving experience. A good result with the car’s geometry set as the vehicle manufacturer intended.
