Wheel Alignment & Maintenance

Wheel alignment emphasizes how the wheel assemblies contact the vehicle’s steering and suspension components at three angles: camber, caster, and toe-in. The angles determine how each wheel points, if opposite wheels are parallel, and if tires face the road perfectly flat for optimum traction, wear, and life. Vehicle owners need a wheel alignment for a variety of reasons, including a collision that knocks wheel angles out of specifications, as proactive maintenance recommended by the manufacturer every 12 months, or after an acute driving incident such as slamming into a large, deep pothole, or driving up a curb while parking. Wheel alignment service involves a certified technician using computerized equipment to measure the wheels’ angles and adjust the steering/suspension components to restore precision specifications. Wheel alignment supports even tread wear, longer-lasting tires, smoother handling, responsive steering, improved traction in adverse weather, and safety.
