Wheel Alignment Company in Connecticut
Wheel alignments are part of a standard automobile maintenance consisting of adjusting the wheels on your vehicle so all the wheels are corresponding to each other. The purpose of a wheel alignment is to reduce the tire wear, gain better gas mileage, improve handling and ensure safer driving conditions. At Reliable Auto Center we have several years of experience performing wheel alignments to customers in Connecticut. We recommend customers follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations noted in the owner’s manual. A Vehicle’s wheel alignment should be checked every 10,000 miles or at least once a year.
At Reliable Auto Center our wheel alignment details include:
- Inspection of steering and suspension systems
- Adjustment of wheel angles so they are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground
- Inspect proper placement of weight around all tires and rims
Road wear, accidents and potholes can knock your vehicle out of alignment.
The three basic angles contribute to proper wheel alignment:
Routine wheel alignments have the potential to save you money. Wheels that are out of alignment contribute to uneven tire wear. When your vehicle’s tire tread wears it can be felt if your vehicle is pulling to the right or left causing an uncomfortable drive. If left untreated, wheel alignment issues have the potential to turn into a steering and suspension issue. Driving a vehicle out of alignment puts stress on your tires but also on suspension components.
Have your vehicle’s wheel alignment checked if you notice:
- Vehicle pulls to the right or left
- Steering wheel vibrating at high speeds
- Steering wheel is off centered when vehicle is driving straight
- Excessive tire wear
While driving your vehicle, if you feel a vibration in your steering wheel at higher speeds and it begins pulling to the right or left, contact Reliable Auto Center for our wheel alignment service. Whether you are interested in a rear wheel alignment, four wheel alignment or front wheel alignment our mechanics at Reliable Auto Center will return your vehicle’s alignment to factory specifications.
