A wheel alignment is completed by adjusting the angles of the wheels of a vehicle so that they are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground. The goal of these adjustments is to maximize the life of your tires and enable your vehicle to drive straight and true when on the road. Wheel alignment is not to be confused with wheel balancing. The only thing that they have in common is the fact that they affect ride and handling.
If one or more of your wheels is out of balance, it will trigger a vibration at high speeds that can be felt through the steering wheel and the seat. Improper wheel alignment can cause extreme tire wear and steering issues. At Unlimited Automotive, we can ensure that your vehicle is aligned properly help keep your tread wear even and its steering accurate.
It doesn’t take much of a jolt to knock a vehicle out of alignment: curbs, potholes and even regular wear and tear can take a huge toll on your vehicle’s steering components and suspension system. Once that starts to happen, your tires and your vehicle will begin to suffer the consequences. It would be foolish to ignore the crucial role that alignment plays in the performance of your vehicle.
