Protect your tire investment with a wheel alignment from Tire Barn.
Tire Barn offers alignment services at many of our locations. We recommend an alignment check be performed after installing each new set of tires. Wheel alignment, in the simplest form, is adjusting the angles (camber, caster, & toe) of the vehicle's wheels. Each of the vehicle's wheels should be parallel with each other and perpendicular to the road. When these angles are within manufacturer specifications, it will ensure the tires will wear evenly and track straight. A properly aligned vehicle will increase the life of your tires, suspension, steering system, and provide better handling and improved gas mileage.
Alignment and wheel balancing are often confused to be the same thing. While it is true that both deal with the vehicle's ride and handling, they each solve different problems. Balancing usually deals with a vibration issue, where alignment deals with tire wear, steering, or tracking problems.
Your alignment can be affected by numerous factors and conditions including accidents, potholes, grazing a curb, bad suspension parts, or normal vehicle wear and tear. When a vehicle is out of alignment many problems can occur, some of these issues include accelerated or uneven tire wear, steering wheel pulls, vehicle wandering, or a crooked steering wheel. Properly setting the vehicle’s alignment will ensure the tires will be able to perform to the best of their ability. Tire Barn alignment technicians use state-of-the-art, laser guided, computerized, Hunter alignment equipment to ensure precise measurements and adjustments.
Alignment is not available at all locations. Please check with your local Tire Barn for more information.
