WHEEL ALIGNMENTS

WHEEL ALIGNMENTS

Customers ask,"DO I REALLY NEED A WHEEL ALIGNMENT?" Alignment assures your tires meet the road at the proper angle. It adjusts the angles of your vehicle’s wheels to original specs for best gas mileage, proper road contact, a smooth ride, and the longest tire life. We recommend an alignment after the installation of new tires or any suspension work. Keep in mind though that alignment adjustments on your vehicle do not last forever. If you hit a pothole or curb really hard, you may risk the chance of kicking your alignment out of spec. Best to get your vehicle check so that you don't risk the chance of wearing out your tires prematurely. Come into LEX BRODIE'S TIRE and we'll be happy to give you a free wheel alignment check after any tire or suspension service. Thank you... Very Much

Unbalanced wheels can cause stress on the wheel bearing and components of the suspension. This can also cause increase gas usage. Wheels that are not properly aligned and balanced, can lead to premature wearing and decrease in tire life
