What is wheel alignment?
A wheel alignment is the adjustment of angles that the tires make in relation to the road surface and
each other. The primary alignment angles are camber, caster, and toe.
A wheel alignment is often performed after replacing tires or suspension components, after an impact
with a pothole or curb, or when the following conditions occur: abnormal tire wear, an offset
steering wheel, or handling concerns (drifting, pulling, wandering, darting).
Technicians measure alignment angles using sophisticated equipment, then adjust or possibly replace
suspension components as needed to set alignment to original OEM specifications.
What if I ignore it?
- Increased or irregular tire wear and more frequent tire replacement
- Vehicle may drift, wander, pull, or dart
What if I take care of it?
- Prolong tire life
- Helps optimize your vehicle's handling based on original OEM specifications
- Reduces steering effort
