**Free Alignment Check**


Here are some common signs that you are dealing with wheels with poor alignment:

  • Vehicle pulling to the left or right.

  • Uneven or rapid tire wear.

  • Your steering wheel is crooked when driving straight.

  • Squealing tires.

What is an alignment?

​Alignment refers to an adjustment of a vehicle's suspension – the system that connects a vehicle to its wheels. It is not an adjustment of the tires or wheels-themselves. The key to proper alignment is adjusting the angles of the tires which affects how they make contact with the road.

What causes a car to pull to the side?

​Air pressure, wheel alignment and low tires. Uneven air pressure is a very common reason for a vehicle to pull to one side. When the pressure in a tire is lower on one side, the height of the tire changes. ... A low rear tire can also change front wheel alignment and cause a pull.

How often should I get an alignment?

An alignment check should be done annually to make sure your suspension is in proper order.

Can an alignment affect my gas mileage?

Yes. Improper alignment can affect your MPG from 2-3 miles per gallon.
