At My Auto Service, we care about your safety and the longevity of your vehicle, which is why we offer a complimentary wheel alignment check at our Centennial location. During this free wheel alignment check, our staff of trained professionals measures your car’s wheel angles to determine if they are in proper alignment — proper wheel alignment means your vehicle’s wheels are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Proper wheel alignment is vital to ensure optimal tire life and proper vehicle handling. Our complimentary wheel alignment check is performed by appointment, or in addition to any of our vehicle maintenance services.
Why worry about your vehicle’s wheel alignment?
Your vehicle’s wheel alignment can be thrown off by a number of everyday things — from hitting a curb or pothole to wear and tear from harsh road conditions. These factors may cause your car to pull to one side or the other while driving and while the pull might be slight, it can cause uneven wear on your vehicle’s tires, minimizing their overall life. Ensuring that your vehicle’s wheels are properly aligned is vital to your car’s overall performance and the proper handling of your car.
Why do we recommend checking your vehicle’s alignment?
You should have your vehicle’s alignment for a number reasons. Your car’s wheel alignment is vital to its’ overall performance, drivability, and tire wear-and-tear. If we find anything wrong with your vehicle, we offer an affordable full-service wheel alignment service. Our staff of trained professionals will restore your vehicle’s wheel alignment by adjusting all wheel angles so they’re properly aligned – i.e., perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other and fully inspect your steering systems and suspension systems.
When should you check your vehicle’s wheel alignment?
Checking your vehicle’s wheel alignment is an important part of vehicle maintenance. It is recommended that you check your wheel alignment with every other oil change — approximately every 6,000 miles. It is additionally recommended that your vehicle’s alignment be checked following any of the following:
- After a collision, fender-bender or hitting a pot-hole – all of these incidents have the ability to throw your vehicle’s alignment off.
- After replacing steering or suspension parts on your vehicle.
- If you feel your car pulling to the side
- If your steering feels unstable or ‘off’ to you
- If your tires are wearing unevenly or you notice squealing noise coming from your tires
