The Tire Factory Guide To Wheel Alignment

It’s no surprise that your vehicle will drive better if all the wheels are pointed in the same direction.

That’s called wheel alignment. If your wheels are out of alignment you may notice that your vehicle pulls to one side or the other.

Something that Pasco drivers won’t notice right away, but will if they keep driving when they’re out of alignment, is that their tires are wearing unevenly and fairly quickly.

That’s because when the vehicle is pulling to one side, you have to steer it back straight.

The outside of the tire just wears out fast because you’re constantly turning, which can be very exhausting on a long road trip in WA – fighting to keep the vehicle going straight down the road.

Some of the things that commonly throw a wheel out of alignment are slamming into a pothole, smacking a curb, or hitting something like a rock.

And it doesn’t have to be a big shock, it can just be the regular bumps and bangs of daily Pasco driving that add up and eventually take your vehicle out of alignment.

That’s why your service advisor or friendly and knowledgeable pros at Tire Factory may suggest an alignment check periodically.

During an alignment service at Tire Factory, we measure each wheel’s alignment to see where they are relative to factory specifications.

While we have the vehicle on the alignment rack, we inspect the tires for wear as well as the suspension and steering components for damage or wear – things that can contribute to alignment problems.

With some vehicles, you can adjust all four wheels so we bring all wheels into alignment. On those vehicles where you can only adjust the front wheels, we bring the front into alignment relative to the rear.

Cost varies by whether or not it’s two- or four-wheel adjustable.

Four-wheel drive vehicles may have an additional charge because they’re more difficult to align.

At any rate, it’s cheaper than having to replace tires every few months.

If it’s been a while since you’ve had your wheels aligned, take your vehicle to Tire Factory in Pasco for an alignment check.
