Wheel alignments help provide optimal tire wear and vehicle handling

During a 4-wheel alignment at Auto Clinic, alignment specialists measure and correct wheel angles so they're set to vehicle manufacturer specifications. They also:

  • * Ensure proper placement of weight around all tires and rim assemblies
  • * Completely inspect steering and suspension systems
  • * Adjust wheel angles so they’re perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other


Why is a wheel alignment important for my vehicle?

  • * Proper wheel alignments can help improve your driver safety, create a smoother ride, and help increase fuel efficiency
  • * Alignments could save you hundreds of dollars on replacing tires due to premature treadwear


When should I bring my vehicle in for a wheel alignment?

Most manufacturers recommend getting a 4-wheel alignment at least once a year. Other times you may need a front-end or 4-wheel alignment include:

  • * After purchasing a set of new Goodyear tires
  • * After a collision, accident, or hitting a large pothole
  • * When replacing suspension or steering parts
  • * If you feel your vehicle pulling to one side when driving
  • * If your steering feels unstable or you feel a vibration
  • * If your tires are wearing unevenly or squeal on turns
