MOOG’s latest Easy Solution Bulletin provides a comprehensive guide to tyre wear and wheel alignment issues.

The latest MOOG Easy Solutions Bulletin provides an illustrated guide to the common symptoms and causes of abnormal tyre wear and suggests corrective action.

MOOG suggests that severe driving incidents and the replacement of steering and suspension components justifies a wheel alignment, even if the parts are not adjustable.

Jonathan Allen, Regional Marketing Manager of Federal-Mogul Motorparts, said: “Abnormal tyre wear is an easy-to-spot symptom of either incorrect wheel alignment or tyre pressures, garages can help customers save money in the long run by making this simple check on every vehicle that enters the workshop.”

If a wheel alignment is not conducted after such incidences, this may result in the vehicle’s suspension specifications drifting outside the manufacturers’ recommended limit.

Poor wheel alignment can lead to the vehicle pulling or premature wear of the tyres and suspension parts.

An example of irregular tyre wear is where either the outer or inner shoulder is heavily worn.

In the guide, MOOG suggests this is because of excessive camber, in which case the camber should be checked and adjusted to the vehicle specifications.

In order to avoid reoccurrence of this issue, it is also advised the shock absorbers, ball joints and control arm bushings are also checked to make sure they are not worn out.
