The Basics Behind Two-Wheel Alignment Services at Capitol City Tire & Service

Wheel alignments are a particularly important step in overall tire and wheel maintenance. The purpose of a wheel alignment is to ensure your tires are pointing straight ahead, perpendicular to the ground, and parallel to each other so they roll at the right angle. Properly aligned tires will help you get the most out of your tires, and vehicle handling will feel considerably easier. When it comes to wheel alignment, three angles contribute to proper alignment: camber, caster, and toe. Camber is the angle of the wheel, which should be at 0° in order for the tire to be perpendicular to the ground and not cause uneven wear to the outer edges. Caster is the angle of the steering pivot, which allows the tires to turn with the steering wheel. Toe is the measurement between tires so that they are parallel to each other. Keeping all three angles in sync will provide for better performance.

Why Should You Have Two-Wheel Alignment Services Performed at Capitol City Tire & Service?

Misaligned tires can cause uneven tire wear and difficulty with vehicle handling. A sign of an impending wheel alignment may be felt in the pulling of your vehicle’s steering wheel. Tires can be knocked out of alignment during a collision or by hitting other obstacles, like potholes or curbs. Wheel alignment is important because properly aligned wheels provide fuel saving benefits. This is because they receive less resistance from the surface of the road. A member of our team can inspect your vehicle to see whether a two-wheel alignment is the best option for your vehicle. Proper wheel alignment promotes even tread wear, which means your tires will last longer. Give us a call if you think a two-wheel alignment is right for you.
