An accurate wheel alignment is critical to avoid rapid tire wear and to maintain the performance of your vehicle's tires. Regular wheel alignments will usually save you as much in tire wear as they cost, and should be considered routine, preventative maintenance.

While often referred to simply as an "alignment", the procedure actually involves highly accurate measurements of complex suspension angles, and the adjustment of a variety of suspension components. An alignment is an important suspension-tuning procedure that greatly influences the operation of the vehicle's tires.

The Benefits of Wheel Alignments

  • Reduced tire wear,
  • Better gas mileage due to reduced rolling resistance,
  • Improved handling with less pull and drift.

A vehicle is considered out-of-alignment when the suspension and steering systems are not operating at their desired angles. They can also be the result of an impact with a pothole or curb. If you’ve been in an accident, even a minor one, chances are you need an alignment.

Incorrect alignment settings will usually result in more rapid tire wear. Therefore, alignment should be checked whenever new tires or suspension components are installed, and any time unusual tire wear patterns appear.

RS Auto Clinic uses a highly accurate computer-assisted alignment system that uses multiple cameras and sensors to measure and adjust camber, caster, and toe angles to the manufacturer's specifications. A four wheel alignment usually takes about an hour for most cars, and slightly longer for light trucks.

When should I have my alignment adjusted?

In summary, you should get an alignment:

  • When you get new tires,
  • When you have suspension components installed,
  • After an accident, even a minor one,
  • After an impact with a pothole or curb,
  • If your vehicle pulls or drifts to one side,
  • If your vehicle exhibits unusual vibration,
  • If your steering wheel is crooked when your vehicle is traveling straight.

We also recommend getting your alignment checked every 6 months as part of your routine maintenance.
