Dear Sir or Madam,

Nothing matters more to us than the health and wellbeing of our customers, our colleagues and their families.


For this reason, with immediate effect, we have made the decision to temporarily close our office to the public until further notice in response to the Coronavirus pandemic. We apologise for any inconvenience. Our priority is to protect the welfare of our employees and customers and with the latest guidance from the HSE, we must honour this and do everything we can to protect our community and to reduce the further spread of the virus.


We will be contactable by phone or email and working behind closed doors until Friday evening in an effort to get as many cars repaired as possible. Customers cars which will not be ready by Friday evening will be contacted directly and alternative arrangements will be made.

We will still carry out estimates by WhatsApp using 087-7391706 and you can still email us on info@autotech.ie

Please continue to stay safe, take care of your families and together we will get through this.


Thank you for your support.

4 Wheel Alignment

Incorrect alignment can result in rapid irregular tyre wear and can even affect the handling and safety of the vehicle.

Wheel alignment can be affected by driving against a kerb, hitting a pothole in the road or by excessive wear to steering or suspension components.  Alignment of wheels and tyres to the specification required by your vehicle is an important way to guarantee a smooth ride and to get the most out of your tyres.

The direction and angle at which tyres are set are both important. Wheel alignment or ‘tracking’ involves checking the direction and angle against vehicle manufacturers’ specifications. These are often described as toe in, toe out, positive camber or negative camber.

“Toe” refers to whether the front of the tyres are closer or further apart than the rear of the tyres. Different types of vehicles need different toe settings to allow for the way that wheels pull either towards each other or apart.

“Camber” is the inward or outward tilt of a tyre. The camber is set by the vehicle manufacturer, and can be affected by potholes in the road and may need to be adjusted periodically.

It’s worth keeping an eye out for unusual wear on your tyres, such as premature wear on the inside or outside shoulder, which could be caused by an incorrect camber setting.

At Autotech we only use the latest technology and can carry out alignments on wheels for all cars and commercial vehicles.
