Proper wheel alignment on your vehicle is about more than just ensuring that your car doesn’t annoyingly drift to the side when you are driving straight. Poor alignment can actually cause other tire and wheel issues, costing you more money later down the road. Luckily, the expert team at Checkpoint Motors is equipped with the latest tools and technology to give your vehicle the optimum alignment.
Why Get An Alignment?
The basic purpose of a wheel alignment is to make sure all four of your tires are properly centered in the wheel well. When this is the case your tires will meet the road with the perfect amount of pressure distributing even wear and tear. This also gives you that perfectly smooth ride, increases your gas mileage, and expands the life of your tires.
When To Get An Alignment
It is typically recommended that you have your vehicle aligned every year as a part of your basic maintenance schedule. But there are also times when your car may require an off-schedule alignment service. Some of these include:
- New Tire Installation – While you are getting your new tires installed you should get them off on the right foot by getting a proper alignment. Tires are pricey and this will help you get the most out of that investment.
- Suspension Replacement – Anytime you have your parts in your suspension system repaired or replaced it is important to also have your wheels aligned.
- Fender Bender – You may not think that hitting that curb or the minor fender bender you were involved in caused any real damage to your vehicle, but these events can easily knock your alignment out of place.
- Lowering Or Lifting Your Vehicle – When you lower or lift your vehicle, it affects your car or truck’s suspension.
