When performing a wheel alignment service, we follow all manufacturer specifications to ensure a positive outcome.
When your vehicle was manufactured, the wheels were attached to the frame and properly positioned to point in the right direction. However, regular driving puts pressure on the wheels and can cause them to move out of alignment. When this happens, you might notice that your car pulls to one side when you’re driving in a straight line or that it doesn’t always respond properly when you turn the steering wheel. Other signs of misalignment include uneven tire wear and a shortened tire lifespan. If you drive frequently over potholes or poorly maintained roads, your wheels may move out of alignment more often. Hitting a curb can also cause issues with a vehicle’s alignment.
It’s recommended to have your alignment checked every 6,000 miles or at the first sign of misalignment. If you’re in the Middlesex, New Jersey area, you can count on our team at Stoms Automotive to take care of your wheel alignment needs. We have experienced and skilled technicians who can determine whether the wheels are misaligned and take care of the issue when needed.
It may come as a surprise that a wheel alignment service doesn’t involve moving the wheels. Instead, it involves adjusting the steering and suspension system, which connects the vehicle to the wheels. The angle of the tires impacts how the car makes contact with the road and how they wear. When performing a wheel alignment service, we follow all manufacturer specifications to ensure a positive outcome.
