You may ask, "What is Tire Alignment?", "What is four-wheel Alignment?", "Are Alignments necessary?" or "When should I get my car Aligned?"...
All great questions and here is a quick simple brief about alignments from us at Boro Line Auto Service:
An Alignment Service is part of regular Vehicle Maintenance which consists of adjusting the suspension components to achieve proper alignment of your wheels.
Having proper wheel Alignment is necessary to get the full life out of a tire. For example, having negative camber increases the wear on the inner edge of a tire; unfortunately meaning you must think about replacements sooner than later.
At Boro Line Auto Service, we do Four Wheel Alignments daily with the top of the line equipment. We perform alignments regularly, instances include:
- A quick check while your car is in our auto shop for an annual inspection
- Your vehicle has the tell-tale signs of needing an alignment
- Some instances of needing an alignment is that the vehicle is constantly "pulling" to one side or another, or the steering wheel is "off centered" or "isn't straight"
- New tires are installed
- Suspension components are replaced
At Boro Line Auto Service, we suggest having your alignment adjusted at least once a year. Once tires wear irregularly, the wear is there for the life of the tire. That is why we recommend regular checks! An alignment consists of angles consisting of Toe, Camber, Caster, Ride Height and Overall Thrust. These are all important aspects to your vehicles safety and performance. Having your vehicle out of alignment leads to uneven and immature tire wear, poor handling and shorter tire life; adding to the total running cost for you the consumer through shorter tire life.
