4 Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment will greatly reduce the premature wear and tread on the edge of your tyres, and ensure you receive more mileage from your next set.

Vehicle suspension and steering contribute to the comfort, performance and handling of your vehicle so it can achieve and maintain the best possible ride. The steering and suspension needs to be measured and adjusted within the motor manufacturer’s specifications, as this can be altered by kerbing and pot holes in the road. This can only be done by measuring all four wheels and having a proper full four wheel alignment measurement.

Alloy Wheel Refurbishment

Ensure you protect your alloy wheels by having any scratches repaired to make them appear as good as new. Why buy a new set of wheels when you can refurbish the old ones at a fraction of the cost? At John Charles Auto we have saved our customers thousands of pounds over the years and we want to continue helping you save more as the price of alloy wheels continues to be significant.
