Ashfield 4 Wheel Alignment
Modern vehicle steering & suspensions are far more technical than ever before. The word tracking is not appropriate and belongs to a former generation of vehicle maintance.There is a need for accurate and precise measurements in this computerised age.
Why is it important to have your wheels aligned?
- Longer lasting tyres
Misaligned wheels can increase tyre wear, which means you’ll need to replace them sooner. You can save yourself time and tyres by checking your alignment regularly, your carbon footprint is reduced where premature tyre disposal is no longer an issue.
- More miles for your money
If your wheels are misaligned the engine will have to work harder, which means your vehicle will use more fuel. Your fuel consumption costs over a 12 month period will be greatly reduced.
- Better handling
Misalignment may mean that your vehicle pulls to one side. With total alignment, road shock is absorbed and your vehicles suspension will give you a comfortable ride,The steering will be far more responsive with easier handling.
- Safer driving
When we align your wheels, we’ll also check the suspension system, which enables us to report any potential issues before they become costly or safety related problems.

Refurbished Alloy Wheels
Scuffed or pitted wheels not only spoil the look of your vehicle, but they also affect the value.
The cost of an alloy wheel refurbishment is far lower than replacing with a new manufacturers wheel.
It's by no means a compromise to either the cosmetic look or the safety of the wheel in its everyday life.
Using industry processes, they achieve a finish that is the equivalent of a factory-made product. This leaves your wheels looking their absolute best for a fraction of the cost of new manufacturers wheels.
The wheels are computer lathe turned.
When it comes to refurbishing a wheel, the approach is to get the wheel to the stage where it can be rebuilt to exacting standards and professionally finished.
Manufacturers Price £ 400.00
Refurbished Price £ 185.00
Pristine Wheels are a recognised by many insurance companies.

The History of the MOT Test
The MOT Test was first introduced in 1960 under the direction of the Ministry of Transport, Ernest Marples. The test was originally a basic test including, brakes,lights and steering checks which was to be carried out after the vehicle was ten years old and every year thereafter. This became known as the "ten year test" or alternatively the Ministry Of Transport test. In 1962, the first Commercial vehicle exam was created and a valid certificate was required in order to receive a tax disc, and in April 1967 the testable age for an MOT was reduced to three years. On January 1st 1983 the testable age for ambulances, taxi's and vehicles with more than eight passenger seats, excluding the driver's was reduced to one year.
The list of items tested has been continually expanded over the years. Including in 1968 a tyre check; 1977 checks for the windscreen wipers and washers, direction indicators, brake lights, horns, exhaust system and the condition of the body structure and chassis; 1991 checks for the emissions test for petrol engine vehicles, together with checks for the anti-lock braking system, rear wheel bearings, rear wheel steering (where appropriate) and rear seat belts; 1992 a stricter tyre tread depth requirement for most vehicles; 1994 a check for emissions on diesel engine vehicles; 2005 introduction of the computerised administration system for issuing non-secure test certificates. Also rolled out in 2005 the creation of the automated test bay this differs from traditional testing by adding additional equipment to the bay to negate the use of an assistant during a test; 2012 checks of secondary restraint systems, battery and wiring, ESC, and speedometers and steering locks.
