A quick question: does having active lane keep assist mean that wheel alignment adjustment has to be carried out by a main dealer.?

I don't think so. When I got new Tyres on mine the Tyre place just did it as normal. The alignment settings are what they are.  :cool:

Active lane keep assist is electronic not mechanical.  :undecided:

Thanks for your quick reply.
I'll be having new front tyres soon and would like the wheel alignment checked as the inner shoulders have worn quicker than the rest of the tread. I think I read somewhere that on some cars the active lane keep assist sensors have to be recalibrated after wheel alignment adjustment and that only main dealers can do this.

The lane assist is done by the camera in the front of the rear view mirror, has no connection to the front wheel. The computer than issues the warning based on the image and steering wheel input if needed/available. You should be fine with the tyre place doing the alignment.

Once again: thank you for your quick response.
Controversially, perhaps, I intend staying with Hankooks.

Hankooks aren't really that bad. There are a lot worse tyres out there. They aren't as good as the Michelins on bitumen but are much better on gravel.

If I was rating them out of 10, I would rate the Michelin pilot sport 4's a 9 and the Hankooks about a 7 .. there are lots of cheap and nasties out there that would rate under 5.

There wear rate on my FD was horrendous.
They were fine in the dry and dangerous in the wet.
Probably not the same as the current version though.
