Importance of Wheel Alignments

Wheel alignment is a maintenance service that ensures the wheels of your car are properly aligned, meaning they are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground. The process involves adjusting three primary angles: camber (tilt of the wheel), caster (front-to-back positioning), and toe (inward or outward angle of the wheels when viewed from above). Proper alignment ensures that your vehicle tracks straight, handles predictably, and maximizes tire life.

During a wheel alignment service, a technician uses specialized equipment to measure and adjust these angles to the manufacturer’s specifications. Correct alignment reduces uneven tire wear, improves steering response, and ensures that your vehicle’s tires make consistent contact with the road. Regular wheel alignments are essential for maintaining safe and efficient driving conditions while maximizing tire performance and longevity.
