    i would say its a must, and the camber as well. Id rather pay however much they charge to check and adjust (£30-£40?) than risk needing two new set of tires in 6 months.

    Just be warned - most dealers's can't do 4 wheel alignment, which is what you need. Make sure you're specific when you ask.

    did not know that paul! thank you for that! ive found a place in gateshead that do the 4 wheel alignment on a hunter machine? if it needs adjusting its about £100! bit of a shock that but if it saves my tyres then will have to bite the bullet, thanks for your advice paul.
