Regular wheel alignments will help maintain your investment by extending tire wear
Regular wheel alignments will help protect your investment by extending tire wear. In addition to helping your tires last longer, having your tires properly aligned ensures your suspension remains in good working order. The suspension is made of a number of components that need to be in alignment for your vehicle to experience optimal handling and performance.
There are also several safety benefits associated with having your tires aligned. For example, your vehicle may pull to the left or right when it is not aligned properly. You may also experience steering and suspension issues that may compromise your safety and control on the road. Having your vehicle set in place, your steering wheel centered, and all four wheels set parallel allows you to have a safer driving experience.
Wheel alignments, along with having the correct tire inflation, can also improve gas mileage. Tires that are underinflated by 20 percent can reduce your fuel economy by as much as ten percent. It can also reduce tread life by 15 percent. Belle Tire can help with a free alignment check to make sure that all of your vehicle's wheels are aligned, increasing the life of your steering and suspension system and tires. Sensors are attached to each wheel and data is disseminated. The camber, toe and caster will then be adjusted to match the manufacturer's standards, which allow your car or truck to handle properly.
