Does your car seem to fight you when steering? Are certain tires wearing out faster than others? You may need to have your wheels aligned.
Wheel alignment is the postion of the wheels relative to your car. Alignment also affects gas mileage and tire wear. When properly aligned, the wheels point in the right direction. Without proper alignment, the wheels resist your steering commands, as well as each other.
The tires are the only parts of the vehicle that make contact with the road surface and impact handling, traction and safety of your vehicle. Keeping your tires inflated and rotating them every 6000 miles will maximize the lifetime of your tires and helps maintain precise handling in all driving conditions.
We recommend wheel alignments every 10000 miles to extend the life of your tires, improve handling, make your care safer to drive and make your vehicle more fuel efficient
Research indicates that the average vehicle is driven 12000 miles a year. A car with a toe angle of only 0.34 degrees out of specification is the same as dragging the tire sideways more than 68 miles per year. I assure you that would not be good for the life of the tire.
