Do you feel like you are fighting the wheel of your car?
If you do, then you may be experiencing issues with wheel balance and alignment. Common symptom includes a lot of road vibration, a steering wheel that goes to one side or another, or issues with steering. A wheel balance and alignment can help solve many of these problems. Here is some information about wheel balance and alignment that you may not have known about from the Wickliffe location of the Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center.
- A wheel balance results in smoother ride. A wheel balance and alignment can make a difference in the experience that drivers have when operating their car. Vibration and pulling from the steering wheel can be virtually eliminated with a proper wheel alignment and balance. You’ll have a smooth ride!
- Wheels need regular maintenance. Your wheels might maintain their alignment if you always drove on smooth roads. If you live in Northeast Ohio, then you know that simply isn’t the case. With the amount of potholes, uneven surfaces, construction zones and difficult driving conditions in Wickliffe, a wheel balance and alignment service is best done every 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
- Wheel alignment services can keep you safe. Avoiding a blow out or issues with braking can mean that you and your passengers are safe in your car. When your tires are not properly aligned, you increase the wear on your tires, making you ripe for a blown out tire. In addition, properly aligned tires help your brakes to work more efficiently – especially critical in a quick braking situation.
- Increase your fuel efficiency. Properly aligned tires can give you more mileage out of every gallon of gas. A tire that is out of balance actually travels farther than their companion on the other side of the car. This pulling – causing sometimes as much as an additional half mile of travel by a single tire – can put stress on your car.
If you are experiencing tire wear issues, vibration or pulling when you drive, then it is time to bring in your car to the Wickliffe Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center for a wheel alignment and balance service.
