By having your wheels perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other, it helps enhance the life of your tires and guarantees your vehicle will drive straight. Cars that do not have a correct wheel alignment can drift to one side, and the driver will have to over compensate to drive straight. This may cause wear and tear on your tires, which could cost more in the long run.

  • Four Wheel Alignment: Both front and rear wheels are adjusted. This is the most typical kind of alignment. 80% of newer cars require this type of wheel alignment.
  • Geometric Wheel Alignment: Only the front wheels are adjusted. This type of wheel adjustment is mainly used for older cars, where the rear wheels are correctly aligned to the car's centerline.
  • Compensated Wheel Alignment: If a vehicle has a damaged chassis, it will need this type of alignment. Both front and rear wheels are adjusted parallel to each other with a centered steering box.
  • Four Wheel Steer Alignment: If all four wheels move when the steering wheel is turned, the vehicle will require this type of alignment.

Making sure your vehicle is properly aligned is critical to the tire's treadwear and performance. This should be considered routine and preventative maintenance to your vehicle to help keep the cost down on parts and tires. Make sure that your technician knows what kind of driver you are so that they can align your vehicle to the proper settings.
