It's no surprise that your car, truck or SUV will drive better in Worcester 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 drifts when letting go of the steering wheel.
If the wheels on your car, truck or SUV are not aligned properly, it will cause excessive and uneven tire wear. This happens when the vehicle is pulling to one side and the driver has to steer it back straight. The outside of the tire wears out quicker since you're constantly turning, which can be very exhausting on a long road trip in MA – fighting to keep the vehicle going straight.
Some of the things that commonly throw a wheel out of alignment are hitting all those Worcester potholes, sliding into a curb or hitting road debris. With that said, it doesn't even have to be a big shock; it can just be the regular bumps of daily Worcester driving that add up and eventually take your vehicle out of alignment. That's why you should have AutoPro check your alignment periodically.
During an alignment service at AutoPro Import Repair, we measure each wheel's alignment and 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.
If it's been a while since you've had your wheels aligned, bring your vehicle to AutoPro Import Repair in Worcester for an alignment check.
