A wheel alignment consists of adjusting the wheels to maximize tread life and ensure that your vehicle tracks straight.

Proper alignment is necessary for even tread wear and precise steering. A misaligned vehicle will also affect your gas mileage.

Research indicates that the average car is driven about 12,000 miles per year. A car with toe alignment just 0.34 degrees (Just 0.17 inches) out of specification has dragged its tires sideways for more than 68 miles by the end of the year!


Symptoms?

  • Excessive or uneven tire wear.
  • Steering wheel pulls to the left or right.
  • Feeling of looseness or wandering.
  • Steering wheel vibration or shimmy.
  • Steering wheel is not centered when car is moving straight ahead.

Wheel alignments should be checked at least once per year or anytime you have your tires replaced or any time the symptoms described above occur.
