We offer fast & reliable tire and wheel alignment services.
Is a wheel alignment really a necessary piece of maintenance for your car? The answer is yes! Keeping your car wheels in proper alignment can increase the lifespan of your tires and make sure you always maintain control of your vehicle. If the tires aren’t properly aligned, even if they are only off by as little as 1/8 of an inch, your car could be dragging sideways as much as 28 feet per mile, creating a safety hazard and putting undue stress on your car and your tires.
At Kevin’s Car Repair & Body Shop LLC, we know there are certain car maintenance items that are important for keeping your vehicle running. While a wheel alignment may not always be at the top of your priority list, it can be important to have the alignment checked when you bring your car in for routine servicing just to be sure that you are getting the most from your car every time you take the wheel.
There are a few clear indicators that your wheel alignment may be the culprit if you aren’t experiencing a smooth ride. If your car is rattling or vibrating, you have trouble driving straight, you notice that your tire tread is wearing unevenly, or you have recently purchased a new set of tires, take your car to a mechanic as soon as possible for a wheel alignment. It is also a good idea to get an alignment after having a mechanic perform work on your steering or suspension system.
Did you know that a wheel alignment affects more than just your steering and suspension?
Your wheel alignment can also affect your gas mileage. That’s right. If you seem to be running out of gas faster than usual and you can’t figure out why, your wheels could be part of the problem. It takes extra effort on the part of your vehicle to drive at the same pace and at your preferred driving style when the wheels aren’t properly aligned, and that could mean more dollars out of your pocket when you have to stop at the gas pump. Because today’s gas prices are always fluctuating, having a good wheel alignment can help you save money.
