INCREASED TIRE LIFE
For every 1mm (3/64 inch) of misalignment an average truck is dragged 5ft sideways per mile in a forward direction; this can dramatically increase heat in the tire & decreases the tire life up to 300% in severe cases, which makes a laser alignment from Mobalign a huge saving and a necessary part of your maintenance schedule.
IMPROVED FUEL ECONOMY
If tires are being dragged sideways due to misalignment, the increased load on your engine will dramatically affect your fuel consumption; many independent studies have proved that it is possible to save as much as 11% of fuel consumption by correct wheel & frame alignment.
A correctly aligned vehicle will run true, the driver will not have to constantly correct the steering to keep driving straight, and this will reduce driver fatigue and lower the risk of shoulder, neck and back problems.
REDUCED CARBON FOOT PRINT
The carbon footprint is constantly being discussed around the world, with the increased pressure to reduce CO2 emissions and greenhouse gases. A properly aligned Truck and trailer will reduce fuel consumption and in turn have an immediate impact on in reducing the carbon footprint.
