The way your vehicle handles greatly depends on having the proper wheel alignment. Otherwise, the incorrect suspension angles can work against you while trying to safely pilot your car down the road.
Thankfully, it’s easy to get your wheels aligned. All you have to do is visit our team at Whitley Automotive for wheel alignment services. We’ll adjust the wheel angles—toe, caster, and camber—to their proper specs, ensuring that your wheels can properly track the road mile after mile.
To keep your vehicle driving at its best, you should get wheel alignments done on a set schedule. Depending on your vehicle type, driving style, and road conditions, you may need this service at least once or twice a year.
You’ll also need to get your wheels aligned if you:
Budget for a wheel alignment when buying two or more tires as well. This will help protect your investment in new rubber, ensuring you can get the max miles out of your new tires.
At our shops, we provide wheel alignment services for all passenger cars, pick-up trucks, and vans. We can also do alignments on many small to mid-size commercial trucks. Just let us know what you’re driving, and we’ll see what we can do.
Wheel alignment services involve the adjustment of your vehicle’s camber, caster, and toe settings to optimize the suspension geometry. These angles can get out of whack as you drive, especially when moving over road roads filled with potholes. Hard impacts (like hitting the curb) also knock the adjustments out of spec.
Our team performs this service at our Locust and Marshville shops using a Hunter alignment machine. This state-of-the-art tool allows us to dial in on your suspension geometry to the specs recommended by your vehicle manufacturer.
At the end of the service, we’ll create a printout for your review so that you can see the difference between the past and current specs. Want help understanding the specs? Just ask our team to go over the results with you during your visit.
When you get wheel alignments as a maintenance service, you’ll benefit in the following ways.
