Wheel Alignment is part of standard automobile maintenance that consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the car maker’s specification. The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tire wear, and to ensure that vehicle travel, is straight and true (without “pulling” to one side). Alignment angles can also be altered beyond the maker’s specifications to obtain a specific handling characteristic.

A proper wheel alignment should always start and end with a test drive. The front end and steering linkage should be checked for wear before performing an alignment. The tires should all be in good shape with even wear patterns.  If you have a tire with excessive camber wear, and you correct the alignment problem that caused that wear, the tire will then make only partial contact with the road.

Having proper tire pressure and wheel alignment can also make a difference in your gas mileage, and with today’s prices that is very important.

Stop by today and get your alignment done and save gas at the same time.
