Geometry

We perform professional laser adjustment of wheel geometry. The geometry also includes a test of measured values. Both the measurement and the adjustment take place on the most modern device of the Italian brand Butler for a three-dimensional system for measuring the geometry of the wheels.

Wheel geometry Ružomberok – wheel track geometry

  • we set the geometry even without ordering
  • we use the most modern technology
    including the protocol of measured values
  • Using modern technology for measuring the convergence of the wheels, we measure and possibly adjust the geometry of the wheels of your vehicle

Correct vehicle geometry setting:

  • increase tire life
  • improve driving characteristics
  • reduce chassis wear
    reduce fuel consumption by up to 20%
  • increase overall security

Our equipment for measuring and adjusting geometry

We use a state-of-the-art device for adjusting the geometry of the axles. It is a product of the leading Italian brand Ravaglioli. This global manufacturer also supplies its equipment to dealers of new vehicles and is at the forefront of its field in Europe. Not only the quality of measurement and setting, but also the speed, accuracy and supply of data needed for setting. We obtain this data directly from car manufacturers.

3D wheel geometry versus optical geometry

The difference between ordinary optical geometry and 3D geometry is so significant that no one contradicts it today. Basically, it is a matter of an order of magnitude different quality and accuracy of measurement and, depending on that, also the geometry setting. The optical geometry was sufficient for vehicles conceptually significantly older, up to a maximum of 2000. Since then, modern cars are equipped with increasingly complicated axles with many atypical functions and the optimal adjustment of their chassis is often very difficult.

What is geometry action?

The geometry of the front axle, or even the geometry of the rear axle, is the design setting of the vehicle chassis. In addition to adjusting the convergence of the front axle, which is the most common action when checking the settings of the chassis, we also adjust the tilt of the vertical pin, deflections, rear axle and axle alignment.

The convergence of the wheels must be set in the following cases:

  • when the wheels roll unevenly
  • after mechanical impact of the chassis (on the curb, larger hole, etc.)
  • after chassis repairs
  • pulls If the vehicle is to the side when accelerating or braking
  • pulls If the vehicle is to the side when driving on a level surface
  • if the steering wheel is skewed
  • optimally once a year
  • best after tire wear
  • always after a bigger accident

 

Chassis and geometry specialist

Autoservis Garant is a specialized service for performing chassis and geometry repairs. We are an authorized service of the chassis center of the German companies APM and Bilstein and the concept of the German manufacturer of chassis parts ATE Continental. The adjustment of the axle geometry is closely related to the technical condition of the vehicle, especially the chassis, so it is a professional job that cannot be performed without the necessary equipment and knowledge. Unfortunately, cars still drive on Slovak roads, in which the geometry is either not adjusted by anyone or adjusted without the necessary equipment and without practical knowledge.

Where not to perform geometry

Today, virtually all car repair shops offer the setting of convergence or the entire geometry. However, only a fraction of them have the necessary equipment (especially functional 3D geometry, the price of which is still relatively high) and experienced staff who do these tasks on a daily basis and do not have to learn it with each chassis first. In practice, with some services, this is unfortunately done by someone adjusting the geometry from your eye or not adjusting it at all. Or take your car to someone who sets the geometry and has it re-billed. Or he’ll do a polka of repair and tell you to arrange the geometry yourself. In all cases, this is very disadvantageous and impractical for the client.

Geometry is not just the convergence of the wheels

A common myth is that geometry is a setting for the toe-in of the front axle. That’s just part of the overall geometry. In most modern cars, in addition to toe-in, deflections, tilts, rear axle, axle parallelism (axle alignment), vehicle ground clearance, etc. are also increasingly used. It always depends on the type of axle and car model.
