4 Wheel Alignment

Been aware that the '59 would need this, and as I was checking all the fluid levels just I decided to check the tyres and it is pretty evident that the inner edge of the tyre is wearing considerably (2x) as fast as the outer edges.

Anywhere recommend anywhere in the Derbyshire or Notts area for this?

Cheers all,
Liam

Well worth doing.

I can't recommend anyone over that way but found my local one through Welcome to Align My Car for the Hunter 4 wheel alignment system and it was money well spent.

A quick scour on through Google and found this;

True 4-Wheel Alignment Benefits | Derby

Uses the Hunter "Hawkeye" system, 14 measured angles. Also have a photo of a GT having the work done and it has Fiat, Alfa, VW, Skoda, Audi and Seat at the top of the webpage so may well have some experience with the 159's problems.

Will give them a ring and see what they can do for me.

Cheers,
Liam

ETS tyre centres can do 4 wheel alignment i believe it's £45ish i think this is a common issue with the setup of Alfa's suspension both my GTV and my 147 have worn the inner edges of the tyres first

Well working down near Reading Monday to Friday proved a bit of a problem with timings in the end, so it is booked in for a place in Reading on Saturday morning.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
