There are many ways you can take good care of your vehicle, and one of those is through all-wheel alignment. This gives you a lot of benefits as a driver or passenger and the way your vehicle operates. While a lot of people refer to this as a vehicle alignment, that’s not really accurate. You’re not aligning the vehicle, but the wheels. A 4-wheel alignment can be done when tires are replaced or rotated, or as a separate service, so you have options to choose from. But understanding the value of this service for your Chevrolet, Buick, or GMC vehicle is the first step.
A four-wheel alignment aligns the wheels’ angles — the camber, caster, and toe — with one another and the road. Putting the wheels’ angles back to factory specifications is very important since it ensures that the vehicle operates at the highest level of efficiency and provides a safe connection between the tires and the road surface.
There are many benefits to a 4-wheel alignment for your Buick, GMC, or Chevrolet vehicle. First, you’ll see improved comfort and a smoother ride when the wheels are correctly aligned. You can also expect improved vehicle handling, and your tires will last longer. They won’t wear out as quickly, and they’ll wear more evenly, too. That can help save you money and keep you safer on the road.
The best way to know when to schedule a four-wheel alignment on your vehicle is to consult your owner’s manual or check with your dealership. If you plan your alignments at regular intervals and follow manufacturer guidelines, you’ll be much more likely to keep your vehicle in good running condition for the long term. Often, wheels are aligned when tires are rotated or replaced. If your vehicle doesn’t feel right, though, or it’s pulling or drifting when being driven, we can take a look and see if there are alignment problems that need to be addressed.
