Four-Wheel Alignment & Maintenance

Leading automakers manufacture vehicles with a comfortable driving experience. The most popular OEM tire brands manufacture long-lasting tires that support your vehicle’s driving comfort, steering responsiveness, and smooth handling. Wheel alignment is crucial maintenance for all-wheel-drive (AWD) vehicles because it ensures wheel angles remain at factory specifications while preventing tire- and driving-related consequences of faulty alignment. Aligned wheels point straight with opposites parallel and ensure tires grip the road with optimal traction for even tread wear, smooth driving comfort, safety, and extended life. Four-wheel alignment service involves a certified technician mounting computerized equipment to each tire to measure the camber, caster, and toe-in angles. The expert technician compares the wheel angle measurements to specifications and adjusts the front and rear suspension/steering components to restore factory specifications. Wheel alignment service includes the certified technician inspecting the tires, exposed braking, steering, and suspension components.
