From wheel alignments and balancing to Flat Repair, rotations and more, we’ve got you covered. Your tires literally connect your automobile to the road, so it’s important to make sure they are properly inflated and running right. Our knowledgeable technicians are happy to talk to you about ways to prolong the life and quality of your complete tire system.
Why does my car need a wheel alignment?
The way your wheels are aligned doesn’t just affect your car’s tires, it also directly affects your vehicle’s suspension and steering. When your wheels aren’t aligned properly, you will notice that your vehicle will drift slightly to the right or left even though your steering wheel is pointed straight ahead. This reduces your car’s fuel efficiency, causes your tread to wear unevenly, and puts excess stress on auto parts in your vehicle’s suspension that will make them wear out sooner than necessary.
It’s important that you always get a wheel alignment when you buy new tires, and getting regular wheel alignment services will keep your car, truck, SUV or minivan’s moving parts run better, longer.
What does tire balancing do?
Making sure your car’s tires are balanced is another important auto maintenance service. The purpose of balancing your tires is to make sure weight is evenly distributed around your car’s axle, so all of the parts in your suspension system are working together correctly. It increases the life of your tires and your suspension parts, and helps you have a smoother ride.
Each bump, pothole and curb you hit will alter your vehicle’s balance – either slightly or greatly, depending on how hard you hit it. If you notice a vibration while you are driving over 40mph, chances are your automobile isn’t balanced correctly. We recommend getting your tires balanced every 4,000–6,000 miles, but check your owner’s manual to see what your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends.
