Aligning Your Wheels Back to Factory Specifications

Understanding Wheel Alignment

A smooth and safe driving experience requires that your vehicle’s wheels are in proper alignment according to factory specifications. Alignment describes how the wheels are angled relative to the vehicle. Each wheel has three angles to be conscious of the camber, caster, and toe. When you bring your vehicle in for alignment service, our ASE-Certified technicians will check each status to troubleshoot the exact problem areas. These angles guide how the wheels are positioned and grip the road. For example, if the wheel tilts inward at the top, that is called negative camber. This can result in premature tire wear since there is more contact space with the road at this angle. If you look at the wheel from above and the front of the wheel points inward, your wheel is toe-in; toe-in can cause a feathering wear pattern on the tire. Your wheel alignment can shift from hitting a pothole to butting a curb to minor vehicle collisions or bad suspension components. At Techway Automotive in Enterprise, Alabama, we are talented in conducting wheel alignment services for all makes and models.
