wheel alignment

What is wheel alignment, what does it do and why do you need it?

It may surprise you to know that the wheels on your vehicle are not straight and, in fact, they’re not supposed to be straight.

The engineers that built your car didn’t design them that way.

Instead, they saw the benefit of using some subtle improvements they could make to help improve the stability, drive and cornering of your vehicle.

There are 3 angles that are applied to your wheels and each has a different function to help your vehicle perform better and stay on the road.

  1. The Toe angle directly impacts the straight-line stability of your vehicle
  2. The Caster angle effects the steering wheel motion
  3. The Camber angle helps manage the cornering performance of your vehicle

Correct wheel alignment is critical for a safe and comfortable driving experience and it should be checked regularly.

The question is, how do you know when it’s time to get an alignment?.
