What Is Wheel Alignment?
Wheel alignment is a crucial part of routine vehicle maintenance. At Rush Automotive in Leander, Texas, we perform alignment service regularly for all makes and models. Properly aligned wheels means your wheels last longer, your rolling resistance is minimized, and you experience improved and safer driving. The purpose of this service is to adjust the angles of the wheels to meet manufacturer specifications. These angles include camber, caster, and toe. Camber is the angle of the tire when viewing the vehicle from the front. When viewed from the side, caster is the angle that identifies how far forward or behind the steering axis is in relation to the vertical axis. The toe angle describes the direction the tires point in relation to the center of the vehicle. A deviation of just a few degrees of one of these angles causes a significant drop in steering and handling performance and tire condition, and in extreme cases, may even render your vehicle unsafe. We’re here to make sure you never experience unreliable or unsafe driving dynamics with our wheel alignment service.
Is it Time for a Wheel Alignment?
A wheel that is out of alignment is often caused by road conditions, potholes, normal wear-and-tear, or other conditions encountered when driving. Luckily, there are signs that signify when one or more of your wheels is misaligned. One of the most common is your vehicle noticeably and continuously pulling to one side or the other without your input. Similarly, you may feel like you have to “fight” your vehicle to keep it in a straight line when you are driving straight. Another sign is if your steering wheel fails to return to the center after you make a turn. Additional clues involve the tires, such as uneven tire wear patterns or a squeaking sound. It’s important to visit our auto shop when you first start to notice these problems, or any other change from your normal driving. Once we determine the specific wheel alignment issue and what we need to rectify, we’ll perform the necessary service for properly aligned wheels: front-wheel, four-wheel, or thrust-angle alignment.
