Alignments

Benefits of Wheel Alignment

A wheel alignment service consists of adjusting the wheels of your vehicle so that all wheels are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground. Three basic angles contribute to proper wheel alignment:

  • Camber
  • Caster
  • Toe

Camber is the measure of the degree of perpendicular offset from the road surface. Caster is the angle of your wheel’s pivot, which is attached to the suspension, and when this angle is out of alignment, straight-line tracking is affected. Toe refers to the angle of directional difference between the tire and the centerline of the vehicle. The front and rear wheels on your vehicle should always be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to the tire beside it.

Signs That You Need A Car Wheel Alignment

It may be time for a wheel alignment, if your car exhibits any of these signs:

  • Pulling to the right or left while driving
  • Feeling a vibration in the steering wheel
  • The steering wheel is crooked while driving straight
  • Abnormal tire wear

Types of Wheel Alignments

Ramona Tire offers both two-wheel and four-wheel alignments at all locations.

  • Four-Wheel Alignment: A four-wheel alignment is often the best choice for many drivers, particularly those who have front-wheel drive. Since most road vehicles have some sort of adjustment possible on each wheel position, the four-wheel alignment is the most thorough way to make sure your vehicle is within manufacturer’s specifications.
  • Two-Wheel Alignments: In a two-wheel alignment, only the front wheels are aligned. This type of alignment is most common for small pickup trucks with solid rear axles.

A member of our team can inspect your vehicle to see whether a two-wheel or a four-wheel alignment is the best option for your vehicle. Schedule an online appointment today.

Benefits of Wheel Alignment

A wheel alignment will keep your vehicle running safely and efficiently by promoting reduced tire wear, better gas mileage, and safer driving conditions. Left untreated, wheel alignment issues have the potential to turn into steering and suspension issues, since driving with wheels out of alignment not only puts stress on your tires but also on suspension components. Ultimately, it’s cheaper to get a car wheel alignment than to repair damaged steering components.
