In a wheel alignment service, our certified technicians adjust various settings on your car to ensure the wheels sit properly in relation to various points on the vehicle and to each other. Picture the wobbly wheel on a cartoon car and how it impacts handling. An actual wheel alignment problem is typically much more subtle but provides the same effect to a lesser degree. A variety of factors, including driving on rough roads, hitting potholes or driving off curbs with a sharp incline too fast, can impact your alignment.
There are multiple suspension angles for your vehicle. These are known professionally as toe, thrust, camber and caster. Our certified technicians examine the wheel position when compared to other things. These include the front of the car, an imaginary center line of the car and the other wheels. An inspection also looks at if the wheel is turned too far in or too far out. In an alignment inspection, all of these points are reviewed. Your tires are also examined to determine if they are contributing to an alignment problem or were damaged by a pre-existing alignment issue.
