ALIGNMENT

Wheel alignment is a standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and steering systems operate at their desired angles, this reduces tire wear.

Alignments are a complicated process and not all technicians get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, stop by or give Prater's Automotive Repair a call.

SIGNS YOU NEED A WHEEL ALIGNMENT

If you drive on a dirt road, or an uneven paved road, or even if you just hit a pothole on your regular commute, the need for a wheel alignment can come quite abruptly. All it takes is one bad move for a small alignment issue to develop. When this happens, your tires begin to wear unevenly, and small problems soon become large ones.

Proper maintenance of your vehicle preserves overall drivability. This is incredibly important when it comes to your wheel alignment. Your wheels are lined up at a precise angle for their best performance. Once they are off that angle, your tires wear out more quickly, and handling becomes poor. When you see signs you need a wheel alignment, head to Prater's Automotive Repair right away.
