tire ALIGNMENTS

Straight and True

You’re heading out on the highway for a weekend getaway and everything seems fine. And then you hit 60 and notice your car start pulling to the right. You remembered to check the fluids and tire pressure before taking off, but your daily driver hasn’t left town for longer than you can remember—you sure didn’t see this coming.

You may be looking at an alignment problem. This means one or more of your tires is out of alignment with your vehicle’s manufacturer specifications. Getting regular wheel alignments ensures better tire life and that your wheels travel in a straight trajectory.

What Does a Tire Alignment Involve?

There are 3 main aspects of our affordable alignments that we measure and adjust
to make sure your wheels allow your vehicleto travel safely in a straight line.

This is the measurement of the horizontal position of the wheels in relation to the rest of the car.

TOE

This is the measurement of the horizontal position of the wheels in relation to the rest of the car. Your wheels could be facing too far to the left or right—even just a bit—and you could be experiencing uneven or premature tire wear, rolling friction, extreme vehicle wandering or a shimmy.

Caster is a measurement of the upper components of the wheel assembly relative to the lower components

CASTER

Caster is a measurement of the upper components of the wheel assembly relative to the lower components. You may need a caster adjustment if your steering is touchy at high speeds or if your steering wheel doesn’t straighten up very easily after a turn.

Camber measures the inward or outward tilt of the top of the tire.

CAMBER

Camber measures the inward or outward tilt of the top of the tire. This can cause the car to veer to one side, add rolling friction, or cause excessive wear to the inside or outside of the tire. If it’s a bad misalignment or if it persists for an extended period, the suspension parts near the affected wheel will wear out faster.
