Why Wheel Alignment?
When you let go of your steering wheel, does the car go straight or does it pull to one side? When you are going straight is the steering wheel flat and upright? These are common problems that are easily resolved with wheel alignment. This also fixes much bigger problems than the ones mentioned above.
Tires can be very expensive. A good set of tires can last you a very long time. One thing that can completely destroy your tires in no time at all, is improper wheel alignment. If the wheels aren’t perfectly straight, then parts of them are dragged or get excessive wear. This will mean you have to buy a lot more tires.
Technology To The Rescue
Fortunately, wheel alignments today are done very professionally. They are done in a much more intricate way than simply looking at the tires and eyeballing to tell if they look straight.
Many modern wheel alignment machines use cameras and lasers to properly develop a 3D image of the vehicles tires. From there it will relay information to the technicians informing them of what needs to be changed and how much in order for the wheels to be in proper alignment.
Toe, Camber, and Caster
As far as wheel alignments go, there are 3 things that need to be looked at and potentially adjusted. These are toe, camber, and caster. Each of them defines a different aspect of how the tire is aligned.
If any one of these three things is off, then your tires will wear out too fast. Our wheel alignment service will resolve any issues your vehicle might have with toe, camber, or caster. We will make sure your wheels are perfectly aligned and properly balanced. This will help you to get the most out of your tires and make driving a lot safer.
