Why Should I Get a Wheel Alignment

A wheel alignment involves working with suspension angles to ensure that the wheels have the correct angular relationship between the ground and the other wheels of the vehicle. Aligned wheels should be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. However, over time, the wheels stray away from being perfectly perpendicular and parallel. When the wheel angles do not meet those criteria, then the vehicle needs a wheel alignment.

The photograph shows the advanced machine that Bil, on of our auto technicians, attached to every wheel of the vehicle. The machine measures the angle of the tires in relation to the ground and each other through camber, caster, and toe. Camber refers to the angle at which the wheels are tilted from being perpendicular, or how far the wheel slants away from being perfectly vertical. Caster, a little more difficult to understand, is the angle created by the steering pivot point from the front to the back of the vehicle. Toe refers to the angle of the wheels pointed inward or outwards from a top viewpoint. The machine reads measurements of each of these angle and sends the information to a monitor. The monitor helps Bil manipulate the angles of the wheels so that they are perfectly aligned when the job is completed.

Why Have the Service Completed?

1. Your ride will be smoother.

2. More Control and Better Steering

3. The tires wear unevenly and have a greater risk of going flat if you don't.

4. Suspension parts wear out faster when tires aren't aligned.
