Many people ask, “What is an alignment?”  Wheel Alignment has to do with your car’s suspension.  Your car’s suspension can be affected when you do something as minor as going over a bump in the road. A tiny accident can throw the calibration off of the components of your suspension.  Even with everyday normal driving, your suspension will become worn and your springs will stretch out.  These will cause your car’s wheels to be at wrong angles. An wheel alignment will cause your wheels to be straightened as the angle measurements are restored.

Benefits of proper wheel alignment:

  1. Increases tire life up to 43%

  2. Saves Fuel

  3. Alleviates the need for costly suspension repairs

  4. Provides road stability

  5. Optimizes safety

Symptoms of your car’s need of an wheel alignment:

  1. Tires showing more wear on the outside of your tire or other uneven wear.

  2. Your steering wheel vibrates

  3. Although you know you are driving straight, your car seems to drift to one side.

Even if your car has no symptoms, your car’s manufacturer understands the importance enough to include a schedule in your car’s manual. In fact, we are certified to  honor most manufacturer’s extended warranties for your extended warranty service.
