Tyre and Wheel 

Tires and wheels are things that seem fairly simple -- but once you start peeling back the layers you realize they're actually quite complicated. In an effort to demystify the world of tires and wheels, with its confusing terminology, technology, and "tirespeak," we present the TireBuyer Tire and Wheel Glossary.

Alignment

Adjusting the vehicle's wheels, steering, and suspension components to manufacturer's specifications. When wheels are in alignment, they are in the optimal position relative to the road and each other. Impacts like driving over a curb or hitting a pothole can cause misalignment.
