Wheel alignments help ensure your tires are angled correctly—level with the ground, pointing straight ahead, and parallel to each other—so they can maintain straight-line tracking. Proper alignment angles will help you maximize the life of your tires. In addition, the handling of your vehicle will be considerably easier. Wheel alignments are arguably the most important aspect of wheel and tire maintenance. Three angles promote proper wheel alignment: toe, caster, and camber. Toe is the measurement between tires. Your tires should be in equal positions and parallel to each other. Caster, or the angle of the steering pivot, permits the wheels to turn along with the steering wheel. Camber is the angle of the wheel, which should be perpendicular to the ground. Four-wheel alignments are an important part of extending the life of your tires, because misaligned tires inevitably lead to poor tire performance and uneven tread wear.
Wheels out of alignment can cause difficulty with overall vehicle handling. A four-wheel alignment is often the best choice for many drivers, particularly those who have front-wheel drive. Wheels can become misaligned during a car crash or by simply hitting road obstructions, like potholes or curbs. There are several signs that will alert you to an impending four-wheel alignment service. A vehicle pulling strongly to one side is in need of alignment. Another sign is uneven or abnormal tire wear. Properly aligned wheels provide many benefits, including cutting down on fuel costs, because wheels that have been aligned properly offer considerably less rolling resistance. Routine wheel alignments also prevent disproportionate tire wear, so your tires will last longer. Contact us today for a four-wheel alignment.
