You will always want to make sure your vehicle is in the best condition. This should include regular inspections. One part should be the tires and the condition they are in. Wheel alignment refers to the position of the wheels to the vehicle itself, to each other and to the road. Ideally, all four wheels should be aimed straight ahead, parallel to each other, perpendicular to the road and perpendicular to their respective axles. This will produce the least amount of rolling resistance, the least amount of friction, the least amount of tire wear and the greatest traction.


The toe-alignment refers to the parallelism between the wheels as viewed from above and is measured in inches or millimeters. When both front wheels are aimed straight ahead and the distance between the leading edges of both front tires is exactly the same as the distance between the trailing edges, the wheels properly aligned.


You can also notice the alignment of the vehicle by looking at the tires. If the tread on the tires is wearing unevenly, that means the tries are rotating at different angles of one another. Make sure to schedule an appointment with us and we can inspect the tires, as well as the alignment. By having the tires properly aligned, you can help improve the handling of the vehicle, as well as fuel mileage. This is because the vehicle will not have to work as hard when the tires rotate unevenly. If you ever notice an issue with the vehicle, make sure to bring it in. This can help you to have a pleasant driving experience.
