Vehicle pulling to the left or right? Uneven or rapid tire wear? Is your steering wheel crooked when driving straight? You probably need a wheel alignment.
A wheel alignment is a service that involves realigning your wheels so that they are all perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other.
The camber, caster, and toe contribute to proper wheel alignment.
Camber is the measure of the degree of perpendicular offset.
Caster is the angle of your wheel’s pivot. It's attached to the suspension, and when this angle is out of alignment straight-line tracking is affected.
Toe refers to the angle of directional difference between the tire and the centerline of the vehicle.
Your truck's front and rear wheels should always be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to the tire beside it. Having routine wheel alignments can potentially save you thousands in the long run while promoting optimal vehicle performance.
A wheel alignment can keep your car running safely and effectively by encouraging less tire wear, higher gas mileage, and safer driving conditions. Uneven tire wear may be caused by misaligned wheels.
A vehicle pulling to the right or left while in motion may indicate uneven tread wear. Wheel alignment issues, if left unchecked, can lead to steering and suspension problems, because driving with your wheels out of alignment puts stress not just on your tires but also on your suspension components.
