Half price wheel alignment at National with the attached voucher.

Normally costs £28 at most garages, so bit of a bargain!

Might come in handy with all these pot holes around! Shame I didnt see it a few weeks ago as had to pay £28

If they check to see if it needs doing for free........

"oh yes sir - your tracking is definitely out and needs adjusting at £14"

Is wheel alignment the same as tracking?

On the other hand, if it does need doing and you ignore it, you could end up needing new tyres.

Theres a few basic checks you can do before if you really wish - Check to see if one tyre is wearing quicker then the other and also if you car pulls to one side.
Also if you car judders at certain speeds - Indications that your tracking may be out.

£14 is much better then £28. I had mine done at Kwik Fit before I saw this voucher and they took me into the garage and showed me how the tracking was out and explained the system they were using.

I think mine needs doing so I'm gonna get this done when they service my car in a couple of weeks

Wait for them to find other things "dangerously wrong" with your car while they do the tracking (e.g. brakepads, discs, shock absorbers) that they will insist need doing there and then otherwise it's illegal for you to drive away.

hmm I hope youre wrong.
Ive heard so many bad things about National but I'm using clubcard vouchers to get the service done and they are the only ones on the list.

They have a 'duty of care' to inform you of defects, but they cannot stop you leaving with your car, they may make you sign something showing you knew the risks and off you go. Just make sure you have done your research before you go - 1.6mm minimum tread depth etc etc.... and just ask them to explain. If that fails ask to watch them adjust it that usually puts them off any funny business.

does any one know if this is 2 wheel or 4 wheel alignment?

Good point, but I'm ok as my car just passed it's MOT 3 days ago so they can't pull a stunt like this on me (but they will probably try, lol).

Thanks to OP for sharing this, printed out and will use in the next few days. :thumbsup: Heat added.

I would like to know this as well, need full 4 wheel alignment. Was planning on getting the proper laser jobbie but might be worth paying these guys a visit if its for all 4

Had a quick google and seem they dont do a "proper" 4 wheel alignment using discount vouchers, ah well will just have to go to a specialist and get it done properly

I've found the National Tyres place in Sheffield city centre to be good value and quite dependable - They generally offer a reduction on their 1st quotation, particularly if you mention a lower quotation from elsewhere, and they insist on calling you "Sir". And, you can leave your car there all day while you're at work or doing some shopping nearby. Often you can just turn up and get a job done on the spot as it's not a well known branch, being hidden near a bus-only road near the Moor.

Also, if you go to their website you'll see similar discount vouchers for a host of other services, too.

:thumbsup:

haha, being very naive in this kind a question they done for my stepdad this alignment for £14 aswell. oh why the older generation mostly appeal to an"autority" opinion

Expired, already posted here with other vouchers too - hotukdeals.com/ite…er-

Probly not including rear wheel alignment as it is *usualy* (4ws cars excluded) a completely different kettle of fish.
front wheels are usualy adjusted via turning the tie-rods , rear wheels if even adjustable usualy use oval mountings that adjust camber at the same time and get more complicated than just pointing forwards.
If your rear wheel alignment is out there's probly more to it that just needing adjustment.
Worn suspention can give similar sort of evidence and is more likely infact.

That was over a month ago and is allowed under forum rules?

Useful to have, even if it'd just to haggle down the place i usually go. Thanks

Why expired? I think the deal is the whole year.

Had mine done last week with the voucher. They charged me £14 for front and £14 for rear, so £28 in total for the car (although not a 4WD).

They did an oil and filter change for £25 too which I thought was awesome. Saved me getting my hands dirty, not even cheaper if you do it yourself!

huh, how is that then?

thanks.

PhoenixUK;8179486

ha, exactly.

No way of adjusting the rear (alignment) on a normal car. If it's out it is down to worn bushes/droplinks etc and they need changing as there is no adjustment.

The National Tyres near me does not have the facility to do a FULL 4 wheel alignment and conned me to be honest out of £28 as I had previously asked for a full 4 wheel alignment..... Anyway £14 is cheap for front 2 wheel alignment....

Thats wrong, my MG TF had rear wheel alignment..... R.I.P.

I did say on a 'normal' car.

Yes, there will be the odd sports car with some rear wheel adjustment but 'most' run of the mill cars have no mechanical rear adjustment. The rear wheel just bolts straight to an axle and rolls merrily along.

Some Hondas have 4 wheel steer for example but it is not the 'norm'

Man I miss my old prelude which had 4ws, suprisingly handy for a car built in 1992!

Went in today as needing alignment quite badly - very happy with this posting as it's saved me an easy £14 which I was about to invest at my usual MOT place a couple of weeks back - but for it reaching closing time. Glad I checked HUKD and thumbs up to powerful_Rogue as this is £14 that has stayed in my pocket! Heat and Rep added.

BTW, there was no hard-sell - in fact, no upsell at all! They advised on everything safety related (there's a large poster in reception telling you that they will and what they are looking for) - luckily for me all was ok. Only downer is that they don't do MOT's. No waiting, or having to book. Website simple to use, PDF easy to locate and no issues printing off. I am going to do a deserved write up on National (South Ealing) as the service & price was excellent.

ps - there was also a poster in there indicating price match - err, said something like 'tell us your best price & from where and we'll try match it'. Seems an honest outfit, open from 8.30 and 7 days a week. Likely to use again (just b4 voucher runs out!)

No way i'd sign anything!

"Just do the tracking as asked, did i ask for brake check etc etc"
"No"
"Well give me my car and . . . . .off!"

National Tyres seems to be running a scam, at least here in Reading/Newbury/Oxford. They refused to accept the voucher both for me and my Dad (on different cars), claiming that the "nuts are siezed" so you have to pay full price! Wheels were aligned without problem (and without seizure!) just a year ago.

I had no problem in Gloucester, however, since having mine done a few months ago, they seem to need doing again after having new brake pads fitted by a different garage - can I use this voucher twice do you think?
