Wheel Alignment

Put simply, wheel alignment is the science of accurately measuring and then positioning the wheels on your car to ensure the least amount of wear to your tires. When correctly set it will greatly extend the life of your tires, your car also will handle better, it will also be safer to drive.

When Do I Need a Wheel Alignment?

  • When you are replacing your tires.
  • After hitting a pothole or when you encounter a curb.
  • If your steering wheel isn’t straight or your car pulls to either side or wanders on straight roads.
  • We recommend a wheel alignment at least once a year to ensure your vehicle’s safety, to improve handling and to maximize the life of your tires.

Two of the most common problems that can cause rapid tire wear are incorrect Camber and Toe-In settings.

Camber

This measurement determines whether or not your wheels lean in, out or sit straight up in a vertical position. Incorrect camber makes your car feel as if the steering is pulling to either side. Correct camber ensures the right amount of tire tread is in contact with the road for safer turning, braking and reduce tread wear.

Toe-In

If your front wheels are ‘pigeon-toed’, you have toe-in and if they’re pointing out like ballerina’s feet you have toe-out. Both lead to tire scrubbing and excessive tread wear and may also cause unpredictable steering response.
