Alignment Specialists

Why is an alignment so important on your vehicle?

Many drivers don't realize the importance of proper wheel alignment on our vehicles. Most think that the worst thing that can happen to our tires is a flat and this is very far from the truth.

The process of a wheel alignment consists of making sure the wheels are not only parallel to each other, but are perfectly perpendicular to the road.

What are the benefits to making sure your wheels are properly aligned:

Save Fuel: a properly aligned vehicle has much less resistance to the road surfaces, which will result in a smooth ride and savings at the gas stations.

Increase the life of your tires:As resistance to the road increases in a vehicle with incorrect alignment specs, this also increases the wear of the rubber on your tires. Incorrect alignment will cause uneven tire wear decreasing the life of the tire greatly. Also, most tire manufacturers will not cover the tire for premature wear due to bad alignment as this is not a tire defect.

Safety:If you notice your vehicle pulling to the left or the right, this means the wheel alignment is off specification. It can be hard enough to drive a vehicle like this during the summer months, however in the winter when it is wet and snowy out, this creates unnecessary and preventable safety concerns.

Unnecessary strain on your vehicle:A proper alignment can help to prolong the life of other components of your vehicle. A vehicle that pulls to the left or the right can cause problems with the suspension system and brake system. By having your alignment checked and correctly adjusted, you could be increasing the life of your suspension components and brake components.

There are many signs that you should get your alignment checked and performed. As a general rule we recommend an alignment check every 6 months or 10,000km, or every time you rotate your tires. However if you notice signs of bad alignment such as vehicle pulling to the side or if you notice one of your tires wearing faster then the others. Or if you have just replaced your tires, it is highly recommend to have an alignment check to help increase the life of your new tires.
