Just changed front tyres and my steering alignment is off.

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Just changed front tyres and my steering alignment is off.

If anyone can help me on this I would be very happy. I have just changed my 2 front tyres on my Peugeot 206 and now the steering isn't aligned. It was perfectly fine before changing the front tyres! Any one know the reason for this? Thanks! Judith :banghead:

Are you refering to spoke position? Meaning having your steering wheel centered as to supposedly drive in a straight line but it just isn't straight or are you refering to actual wheel alignment?

The only things that would cause symptoms like that are;

1. They mounted different size, different tread or different construction tires on each side. In other words, tire mismatch.

2. They have the air pressures off substantially.

3. One of the new tires seperating internally.

That is assuming that the only work done was replacing the front tires. I think further description is in order as to the work accomplished and especially what the car is doing. What do you mean by "the steering isn't aligned", and how did you come to that conclusion?
