Wheel Alignment for Cars & Light Trucks

Does Your Vehicle Need a Wheel Alignment?

 



Your vehicleís manufacturer specifies carefully calculated adjustments and precise settings for wheel alignment that will reward you with maximum vehicle performance, optimum driving enjoyment and cost savings. Itís no surprise that your vehicle will drive better during rush hour, weekend cruising, or in daily stop-n-go traffic if all the wheels are pointed in the same direction. Thatís called wheel alignment. If your wheels are out of alignment you may notice that your car pulls to one side or the other.

Something that you wonít notice right away, but you will if you keep driving around town when youíre out of alignment, is that your tires are wearing unevenly and fairly quickly. Thatís because when the vehicle is pulling to one side, you have to steer it back straight. The outside of the tire just wears out fast because youíre constantly turning, which can be very exhausting on a family road trip Ė fighting to keep the vehicle going straight down the road.

Some of the things that commonly throw a wheel out of alignment are slamming into a pothole, smacking a curb or something like a rock. And it doesnít have to be a big shock, it can just be the regular bumps and bangs of daily driving that add up and eventually take your vehicle out of alignment. Thatís why one of our advisors may suggest having your alignment checked periodically.

With an alignment service, we measure each wheelís alignment to see where they are relative to factory specifications. While we have the vehicle on the alignment rack, we inspect the tires for wear as well as the suspension and steering components for damage or wear Ė things that can contribute to alignment problems. With some sedans you can adjust all four wheels so we bring all wheels into alignment. On those vehicles where you can only adjust the front wheels, we bring the front into alignment relative to the rear.

Cost varies by whether or not itís two or four wheel adjustable. Four-wheel drive vehicles may have an additional charge because theyíre more difficult to align. At any rate, itís cheaper than having to replace tires every few months.

A wheel alignment will save you money by significantly extending the life of your tires and suspension! Bring your vehicle to our service center on Manatee Avenue W. in Bradenton, Florida for an alignment check.

Improper alignment will result in difficult handling, greatly accelerated tire wear, poor fuel economy and excessive wear on your vehicle's suspension.

Steering or handling problems may include off-center steering wheel, steering pull , unsteady steering, loose steering or hard steering. You may notice a change in steering direction after hitting bumps.

 

Unusual or accelerated tire wear may take the form of edge wear, diagonal wear or cupping that, if left unattended, will cause premature tire replacement.

Failing to maintain proper wheel alignment will make it impossible to maintain factory-specified suspension settings that control the quality of your ride.

 

Protect your investment in your vehicle by keeping your wheels properly aligned. If you bump a curb or hit a pot hole hard, have the alignment checked. If you have new tires installed or worn suspension parts replaced, be sure to have these repairs accompanied by a wheel alignment.
