WHAT IS A WHEEL ALIGNMENT?
When your tire alignment is off, it can cause a roadblock in terms of safe driving. Tire alignment, also known as Wheel allignment, is an important aspect of keeping your car in top condition. Misalignment can damage your tires, causing them to wear out before they’re supposed to. It can also cause the steering wheel to be off center or cause the vehicle to pull.
Tire Allignment involves adjusting your car’s steering and suspension system, which connects the car to the wheels. It does not refer to adjusting the tires or wheels. Alignment helps keep your vehicle driving straight down the road and prevents your car from veering from one side to the other.
During your alignment service, a technician will check the Camber, Caster and toe angles. Camber refers to the inward and outward tilt of each wheel, caster is the angle produced by the steering system’s pivot point from the front to the back of your car, and toe is the inward or outward angle of the wheels. Aside from inspecting the camber, caster and toe angles, an alignment technician will check the front and rear steering, suspension system, and tire condition and air pressure. A professional alignment service can help ensure all four wheels of your car are heading the same direction.
