We can fine-tune your car
During a four-wheel alignment, our technicians measure and correct wheel angles so they’re set to vehicle manufacturer specifications.
- Completely inspect steering and suspension systems
- Adjust wheel angles so they’re perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other
Why is a wheel alignment important for my vehicle?
- Proper wheel alignments improve driver safety, create a smoother ride, and increase fuel efficiency
- Alignments save you hundreds of dollars replacing tires due to premature tread wear
When should I bring my vehicle in for a wheel alignment?
Manufacturers recommend a four-wheel alignment at least once a year.
Other times you may need a front-end or four-wheel alignment include:
- After purchasing a set of new tires
- After a collision, accident or driving through a large pothole
- When replacing suspension or steering parts
- If you feel your vehicle pulling to one side when driving
- If your steering feels unstable
- If you feel a vibration
- If your tires are wearing unevenly or squeal on turns
Tires are one of the most important components of your car.
Monitoring tire safety involves more than checking air pressure. Routine inspections will help you identify problems with tires and other important systems. Most importantly, tire problems affect your car’s ride comfort, handling and safety.
High Speed Balancing
Balancing your car’s wheels and tires is necessary, as it usually translates into a vibration in the car as well as some very irregular and damaging wear on the tires. This process equalizes the weight of the combined tire and wheel assembly so that it spins smoothly at high speed. Balancing involves putting the wheel/tire assembly on a balancer, which centers the wheel and spins it to determine where the weights should go.
Why is it important?
Tires wear differently, depending on their position on the vehicle, your driving style and the condition of your suspension. Regularly rotating your tires evenly distributes their wear, helping you get the most miles out of your tires while maximizing traction on all four wheels.
What is the service?
Adjusting the position of the tires on your vehicle, according to your vehicle and tire manufacturers’ recommendation.
* Return to our service centers within 5-50 miles of a Tire Rotation Service and get your lug nuts/bolts re-torqued free of charge.
A routine tire inspection is a good way to ensure your tires are safe and at peak performance. Monitoring tire safety involves more than checking air pressure. Routine tire inspections will identify problems with tires and other important systems. We will check for tread-wear indicators to inspect for unusual tread wear which could indicate the need for rotation, alignment or replacement.
Suspension and Steering
Steering and suspension systems are important for safety and the comfort of your car its and performance.
Everyday use may cause shocks, struts and springs of your car’s suspension system to weaken over time, reducing your vehicle stability and performance.
Steering and suspension service eliminates premature tire wear. When you bring in your vehicle for steering and suspension services you get a complete system evaluation, which includes:
- Inspection of all shocks, struts, and springs for signs of wear or damage
- Replacement of worn, damaged, or missing steering or suspension parts
Look for warning signs of possible steering and suspension issues, and let our experienced technicians do the inspection:
- Bumpy or shaky ride
- Crooked steering wheel
- Excessive noise when driving over bumps
- Extreme bouncing and wandering
- Your tires are wearing unevenly
When your car has a tire problem, you can trust our experienced mechanics to identify any problems. We will check the tires carefully for the tread-wear indicators: unusual tread wear, cuts, ripples, bruises, scraps etc. which indicate the need for rotation, alignment, replacement or adjusting tire inflation pressure.
