Wheel alignment is an adjustment Jeffrey’s Automotive can make on your car or truck! Several reasons to do this:
- to ensure the tires are calibrated to point straight ahead
- makes a vehicle steer easily and allows tires to wear evenly
- to correct any problem (not visible to the normal human eye) where your car accidentally hit the median, curb or a pothole in the road
There are telltale signs of a vehicle in need of an alignment. The tire that is pointing off-center will pull the vehicle in the direction it is oriented. For example, if the right front tire is nudged slightly inward (left), the steering wheel will pull left while driving on a flat, even surface. The driver will have to maintain a right-pull on the steering wheel to keep the vehicle headed straight — even when driving on a flat, straight road. This is not only annoying, but the tire that is out of alignment will also wear prematurely and unevenly because of the constant drag placed on its tread. The drag can also decrease the car’s mileage.
