Wheel Alignment


Research shows us that the average vehicle is driven about 12,000 miles a year. A car with a toe angle misadjustment will drag the tires sideways for more than 68 miles by the end of the year! The capabilities of our computerized alignment system includes all cars and trucks, both foreign and domestic through 1 Ton.


What are the “symptoms” of a vehicle with incorrect alignment?


  • Excessive or uneven tire wear.

  • The vehicle pulls to the side.

  • Feeling of looseness and/or wandering.

  • Steering wheel vibration.

  • Steering wheel is not centered when the vehicle is moving straight ahead.

How often should I have my vehicle aligned?


Follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation noted in your owner’s manual. As a general rule, have your wheel alignment checked every 10,000 miles or at least once a year.


Proper alignment helps: 


  • Reduce Tire Wear: Improper alignment is a major cause of premature tire wear. Over the years, a properly aligned vehicle can add thousands of miles to tire life. In most case tires are replaced prematurely due to adverse wear.


  • Get Better Gas Mileage: Total Alignment sets all four wheels parallel, which along with proper inflation, minimizes rolling resistance.


  • Improve Handling: Does your car pull left or right? Do you constantly have to move the steering wheel to keep your car traveling straight ahead? Handling problems can be corrected by Total Alignment service. With all the vehicle components aligned properly, road shock is efficiently absorbed.


  • Be Safe on the Road: A suspension system inspection is part of the alignment procedure. This allows worn parts to be detected before they cause costly problems.
