Wheel Alignments

The importance of wheel alignments

In Vehicle Alignment by HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire

You can get the most out of your vehicle’s tires through one check.

Wheel alignments, which should be conducted once a year, can prevent premature wear.

If you notice that the steering wheel isn’t centered or that it’s pulling to one sign, you may need an alignment.

Several conditions can cause tires to get out of alignment, including potholes, curbs and suspension wear.

Most cars nowadays require a four-wheel alignment. Even though most pickup trucks require a two-wheel alignment, it’s a good idea to make sure all the wheels are checked. This will ensure that something isn’t bent.

A qualified technician will be able to see if the castor, camber and toe are within specifications. They would also be able to evaluate if you need to replace any parts, such as ball joints, lower control arms, tie rod ends, and struts.
