PALM WHEEL ALIGNMENT

WHY WHEEL ALIGNMENT IS SO IMPORTANT


PALM WHEEL ALIGNMENT WAS FOUNDED IN 1985

Palm Wheel Alignment was founded by Johan Heyns in 1985. His main objective was to offer quality and honest service to all his clients.

In 1996, he passed the business down to his son, Billy Heyns, who would ensure that the same standard of high quality work that was set by his father would be maintained under his leadership. He accomplished this through hard work and dedication. After the passing of Billy Heyns, his son, Michael Rautner, being the third generation to enter the family establishment will continue to up hold the legacy that has been left behind by both his father and grandfather.

HOW A CAR'S
SUSPENSION WORKS

The job of a car suspension is to maximize the friction between the tires and the road surface, to provide steering stability with good handling and to ensure the comfort of the passengers.

Suspension is the system of tyres, air in the tyres, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between the two. Suspension systems must support both road holding/handling and ride quality, which are at odds with each other. The tuning of suspensions involves finding the right compromise. It is important for the suspension to keep the wheel in contact with the road surface as much as possible, because all the road or ground forces acting on the vehicle do so through the contact patches of the tyres. The suspension also protects the vehicle itself and any cargo or luggage from damage and wear.
