If potholes, gravel roads and other winter conditions have taken a toll on your vehicle, a wheel alignment can ensure you’re driving straight and reducing tire wear.
It doesn’t take much to knock a vehicle out of alignment: potholes, curbs and even regular everyday driving can take a toll on your vehicle’s suspension system and steering components. Ensuring your wheels are adjusted back to factory spec will help your tires wear evenly and you get the best fuel economy possible.
A wheel alignment is recommended when:
• New tires are installed
• You experience uneven tire wear, steering pull, or an off-center steering wheel
• Your vehicle has had an accident or a hard impact with a curb, potholes or road debris
• You lower or lift your vehicle
• Your vehicle drives on all-season or all-weather tires year-round, and it’s been a 1-2 years since your last alignment service
• It feels like your vehicle is pulling to one side while you’re driving
• Uneven tread wear on your tires
• Your front-end shimmies or vibrates after hitting a bump
• Your steering wheel is off-centered when driving straight
Our certified technicians will conduct an inspection for uneven tire wear and perform a precision alignment service, using state-of-the-art computerized technology. This ensures all four wheels are parallel and sitting flat on the road, and that your steering wheel is centered.
Some signs of pothole damage are immediately apparent, some are not. With 40% of Canadian motorists showing they have experienced pothole damage this summer, a vehicle inspection is critical in identifying problems with your vehicle’s suspension.
