    Default 4 wheel alignment

    Took my motor into alba tyres in Leeds on Friday for the tracking doing. As I've just put 4 new tyres on so I wanted it bang on
    They told me the back wheels could be adjusted on the vectra so it was the geometry I needed which is £60 which seemed a lot but I wanted it right to save wear on the tyres so I got it done after a few attempts and test drives they said it was done and was well out so should drive a load better I drove it and it felt to pull to the right To me and the steering wheel seemed off to the right too so I took it straight back they tweaked again and said it was all good but bring it back next week
    the car felt to drive straight is but it's hard to tell with roads round here but my wheel was still off to the right slightly
    So I took it back in today told them the wheel felt to the right a bit to me. After 1.5 hours and many test drives and tweaks later the guy brought it back to me and said the cars bang straight on the gauges but your wheel is now slightly left as they were closing it was 6pm can I drop it down again in the morning and he will tweak again nd try get it straight. He also swapped my wheels fronts to backs

    So I'm still left with the wheel offset. WTF

    I'm not sure what that is . This was a guy using lazer alignments on each wheel. And tweaking and driving it. Then back under tweaking back layering then driving.
    Just seems like they are never gonna get it right ive already sat there over 3 hours and tmw will be my 3rd visit ...

    Hmm - that does not sound like a Hunter alignment machine,

    Did you get a computer print out of the before and after set-up??

    Suggest you go else where TBH - and find one with hunter equipment.

    Did they weight both the front seats? I think it's 80kg they need to put both passenger and driver side, if they don't then it won't be 100%

    I've just had my car 4 wheel aligned on a Hunter system and it drives like it's on rails! I took it to the Infinti car showroom in Stockport for £69. Well worth doing. You get a printout before and after. They even showed me the system and how it works, all in all a great job and very nice guys.
