Come to Cunningham’s Automotive Repair in Ottsville, PA for your next wheel alignment! You may have an alignment problem if your car drifts or pulls to one side, your steering wheel’s off center, you have uneven tire wear or your car doesn’t feel like it handles right as you travel around Pennsylvania.
When all of your vehicle’s wheels are lined up exactly with each other, your wheels are in alignment. Hitting potholes, running into a curb or other Ottsville street hazards are great ways to knock your car out of alignment. Driving for an extended time when you’re out of alignment causes your tires to wear unevenly and excessively. Sometimes the tire can be worn so badly that it will fail.
The wheel alignment process consists of two major steps:
- The technician will do an inspection of your vehicle’s steering and suspension to see if anything is bent, loose, or broken; tire condition will also be checked.
- Your vehicle is put on an alignment rack and initial readings of your tire’s positions are taken. The wheels are then adjusted to make sure they’re centered and properly aligned.
Like most things, your vehicle manufacturer has suggested a mileage interval for having your alignment checked. But if you run into a curb, pothole, or something else that’s going to give you a big jolt, pay attention to whether your vehicle is pulling to one side when you drive.
Getting your alignment checked when needed is a great way to extend the life of your tires and suspension parts. We recommend that you have your vehicle’s alignment checked annually.
