Alignments 101

A wheel alignment consists of adjusting the steering and suspension components of your vehicle to maximize tread life and ensure that your vehicle tracks straight. A proper alignment is necessary for even tread wear and precise steering. A misaligned vehicle could also affect your gas mileage.

Your tread has a story to tell! Wear and tear on your tire's tread may mean that an alignment is needed. Learn why your tread may be wearing on one particular point of the tire by clicking here.
