What Is Wheel Alignment Service?
A wheel alignment done by the experts at G&M Automotive brings several key benefits. First and foremost is the fact that the process is efficient and inexpensive. With the cutting-edge technology used in our state-of-the-art service center, it doesn’t take long for us to return your car’s wheels to their correct positioning. The wheels of a car must be positioned at specific angles to ensure the tires meet the road properly—it also promotes optimal fuel efficiency, a smooth ride, and long tire life. These angles are the camber, caster, and toe. Camber is the inward/outward tilt, and it can be “negative” or “positive.” Caster is the forward/backward tilt of the steering axis, and toe is the side-to-side difference in distance between the front and rear of the front tires. The toe angle can be toe-in, which is when the distance is closer in the front, or toe-out, which is when the difference is closer at the rear. Here at our auto shop in Hesperia, California, we offer alignment service for all makes and models. Whether your vehicle requires a front-end alignment, four-wheel alignment, or thrust-angle alignment, we can take care of it for you!
When Do You Need a Wheel Alignment?
If your car begins drifting or pulling in its lane or won’t take a turn without the tires screeching, these are notable symptoms of poor alignment. Along with screeching tires, premature or uneven tire wear is another indicator. Keep an eye out for an off-centered steering wheel, too, and any sort of vibration from the wheel when accelerating. The need for wheel alignment service can come from a few different sources. One of the most common is after a sudden or heavy impact on the road, such as hitting a pothole, bumping a curb, or getting into an accident. Misalignment may also occur if a part has endured wear-and-tear, with one of the most notable being suspension springs. Of course, if your vehicle recently underwent a height modification, had new tires installed, or underwent a major bodywork service, we encourage checking your alignment is in the proper place. Any symptom of misalignment is easily treatable with trusted service from our auto shop that ensures maximum fuel economy, safety, and performance with every alignment service performed.
