Performing a wheel alignment means adjusting your truck's suspension components so that your tires move down the road in a straight line. If your truck is not aligned correctly, it can shorten the life of your tires by making them wear unevenly and cause steering inconsistencies, such as a pull to the left or right.
Two of the most significant expenses in the transportation industry are fuel and tires. When your truck is aligned correctly, you can reduce your operating costs by improving your fuel economy and increasing your tire life.
A wheel alignment realigns your wheels so that they roll straight and reduce friction. Reduced friction and less roll resistance give you better fuel economy, tire life, and component wear while decreasing driver fatigue. Proper front-end alignment is critical on commercial trucks because the back wheels of the tandem axles have to follow the front wheel tracks. Misaligned tandem axles can cause the truck to be pushed out of a straight line of travel.
A wheel alignment is a service that involves realigning your wheels so that they are all perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other.
The camber, caster, and toe contribute to proper wheel alignment.
Camber is the measure of the degree of perpendicular offset.
Caster is the angle of your wheel’s pivot. It's attached to the suspension, and when this angle is out of alignment straight-line tracking is affected.
Toe refers to the angle of directional difference between the tire and the centerline of the vehicle.
Your truck's front and rear wheels should always be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to the tire beside it. Having routine wheel alignments can potentially save you thousands in the long run while promoting optimal vehicle performance.
A wheel alignment can keep your car running safely and effectively by encouraging less tire wear, higher gas mileage, and safer driving conditions. Uneven tire wear may be caused by misaligned wheels.
A vehicle pulling to the right or left while in motion may indicate uneven tread wear. Wheel alignment issues, if left unchecked, can lead to steering and suspension problems, because driving with your wheels out of alignment puts stress not just on your tires but also on your suspension components.
Contact us right away if your vehicle starts pulling to the right or left while driving, or if you notice a vibration in the steering wheel at higher speeds.
