Your car might have an alignment problem if it drifts or pulls to one side, the steering wheel is off center, have uneven tire wear or the car just doesn't feel like it handles right. Commonly running into potholes around Cartersville, smacking a curb or hitting other objects in the roadway, are all great ways to knock your car out of alignment. Then, one or more of your wheels starts pulling in a slightly different direction and the problems begin. Don't worry, it just means you need to get the alignment checked.
There are several things involved in performing an alignment at Best Auto Repair Experience. First, there's an inspection of the steering and suspension systems - these components should be checked to see if anything's bent, broken or possible worn. Then the tire condition needs to be inspected. From there, the vehicle is put on an alignment rack and an initial alignment reading is taken. If the vehicle's alignment isn't withing a certain specification, the technician will adjust the steering and suspension components to meet the vehicle's manufacturer specifications for safe handling and proper tire wear.
Like most things, your manufacturer has suggested a mileage interval for having your alignment checked. If you hit a curb, pothole or something else causing a jolt, pay attention to whether your vehicle is pulling to one side or if your steering wheel is off center when you drive. It's better to have your alignment checked before waiting to see if there is uneven tire tread wear - by then, the damage to your tires are permanent.
Get your alignment performed at Best Auto Repair Experience in Cartersville when needed. This is a great way to extend the life of your tires and suspension parts. It will also help ensure that your tires meet the road properly for maximum performance and safety.
When properly aligned, your vehicle will track true and handle the way it is designed. Drivers often associate wheels being “knocked” out of alignment with an event like having an accident, hitting a pothole, curb or some other object. While these can certainly take your wheels out of alignment, the bumps and bounces of everyday driving take their toll on wheel alignment as well. In addition, your vehicle can lose alignment over time with just normal driving.
Give us a call if you suspect your vehicle is out of alignment. We will inspect your steering & suspension components, check for proper tire wear, and for proper wheel alignment. When your wheels are out of alignment, Best Auto Repair Experience can return your wheels to the vehicle manufacturer’s factory settings. Most owner's manuals suggest an alignment check every year or two. It's also a great idea to have an alignment performed at the same time of tire replacement. This will help ensure proper tire wear with your new tires.
