Make Sure Your Tires Perform Properly
At some point all vehicles on the road will need a tire alignment whether it’s a front-end alignment or a 4-wheel alignment. An alignment is the adjustment of your vehicle’s steering / suspension components (the system that connects a vehicle to its wheels). It is not an adjustment of the tires or wheels themselves, but adjustments to the inner and outer tie rods, correcting the angles of the tires which then affects how they make contact with the road.
Some of the benefits of front-end alignments or 4-wheel alignments
- Help your tires perform properly and help them last longer by eliminating uneven tire wear.
- Improve your car handling and keep your vehicle from pulling in one direction or vibrating strangely on the road.
- Steering wheel will be centered where it was when built at the factory.
- Eliminate or reduce steering wheel vibration.
