Wheel Alignment

When your car's alignment is out of balance, your tyires wear prematurely and your automobile becomes hard to handle. That contributes to driver fatigue and impairs safety. It doesn’t take much to knock a vehicle out of alignment: potholes, curbs and even regular wear and tear can take a toll on your vehicle’s suspension system and steering components. Vehicle alignment plays a critical role in the performance of your vehicle. We believe one of the most important considerations to vehicle maintenance is to ensure your wheels are correctly aligned. When they aren't, your car can feel as though it’s pulling to one side of the road, displaying notable tyre wear, or you may notice your steering wheel is shuddering or vibrating.

For the most part it has centered on toe-in vs. toe-out, with toe-out emerging as the apparent winner. However, there's more to wheel alignment than just toe. Equally important is camber. Caster refers to the amount of lead the wheel has compared to its true vertical position and measures the degree to which the tops of the wheels tilt in, or out, from one another. If the wheels tilt in (positive camber) excessively, the inboard shoulders of the tyres will wear. If the wheels tilt out (negative camber) too much, the outer shoulders will wear. The toe angle refers to the degree to which the tyres point inward or outward from one another. As viewed from the driver's seat, if the fronts of the tyres point inward (toward each other), that is toe-in. If they point outward, that is toe-out. Too much toe, either way, causes the tyres to scrub along the road, causing major wear in a major hurry. We offer standard two wheel tracking, four wheel laser alignment and also full camber and caster setup. A four-wheel alignment is a must for front-wheel-drive cars or any vehicle with independent rear suspension--particularly if the car's rear toe and camber are adjustable
