Description of Wheel Alignment

A four wheel alignment consists of adjusting the suspension of your vehicle so that all wheels are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground. Three primary angles contribute to proper wheel alignment: camber, caster, and toe. Camber is the measure of the degree of perpendicular offset from the road surface. Caster is the angle of your wheel’s pivot points, which are attached to the suspension. When this angle is out of alignment, straight-line tracking or directional stability is affected. Toe refers to the angle of directional difference between the tire and the centerline of the vehicle. The front and rear wheels on your vehicle should always be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to the tire beside it. Routine wheel alignments have the potential to save you money in the long run while promoting optimal vehicle performance.
 

Benefits of Wheel Alignment

A four wheel alignment will keep your vehicle running safely and efficiently by promoting better gas mileage, reduced tire wear and overall safer driving conditions. Wheels out of alignment will contribute to uneven tire wear. Uneven tread wear can be felt in a vehicle pulling to the right or left while in motion. Left untreated, wheel alignment issues have the potential to turn into steering and suspension issues, since driving with wheels out of alignment not only puts stress on your tires but also on suspension components. If your vehicle begins pulling to the right or left while driving, or if you feel a vibration in the steering wheel at higher speeds, contact us today for a wheel alignment service.
