What Everyone should know about Wheel Alignment...

Why Total Alignment?

4 key reasons to keep your vehicle in alignment.

Reduced Tire Wear

Improper alignment is a major cause of premature wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tire life. Many tires are replaced prematurely due to adverse wear.

Safer Driving

A suspension system inspection is part of the alignment procedure. This allows worn parts to be detected before they cause costly problems.

Improved Handling

Does your car pull to one side? Do you have to turn the steering wheel to keep your car traveling straight ahead? Many handling problems can be corrected by total alignment service.

Better Gas Mileage

Gas mileage improves as rolling resistance is minimized. Total alignment sets all four wheels parallel, which along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance.

Mobirise

For vehicles with non-adjustable rear suspension:

1.) Alignment angle readings are measured at all wheels.
2.) The steering wheel is centered.
3.) Adjustable front wheel alignment angles are referenced to the rear thrust line and set to the vehicle manufacturer's specification.

RESULT: All four wheels are parallel to one another and the steering wheel is centered.

For vehicles with adjustable rear suspension:

1.) Alignment angle readings are measured at all wheels.
2.) Adjustable rear alignment angles are set to the manufacturer's specification. (Rear thrust line corresponds to vehicle centerline)
3.) The steering wheel is centered.
4.) Adjustable front wheel alignment angles are referenced to the rear thrust line and set to the vehicle manufacturer's specification.

RESULT: All four wheels are positioned straight ahead and parallel, and the steering wheel is centered.

Important questions about wheel alignment:

  • How important is wheel alignment? - Think of it this way: Driving a vehicle for 12,000 miles with a toe misalignment of only 0.34 degrees (0.17 inches) out of specification would be equivalent to dragging the tires sideways for 68 miles!
  • What are some easy-to-notice symptoms of a misaligned vehicle? - 1.) Excessive or uneven tire wear. 2.) Vehicle drift or pull. 3.) A feeling of looseness or wandering. 4.) An out-of-level steering wheel.
  • How often should I have my vehicle aligned? - Always follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommendation in your owner's manual. But as a general rule, have your alignment checked at least once a year.
