If you’re not sure whether your car needs a wheel alignment, look at the tires. Uneven tire wear is the best way to tell if your vehicle’s wheels are out of alignment. Other signs that your car’s wheels are out of alignment include drifting to once side, a vibrating steering wheel, and a vehicle that drives straight when the steering wheel isn’t centered. If you’re experiencing any of these warning signs or if you haven’t had a wheel alignment in some time, a wheel alignment may be in order. If you live in Twin Falls, wheel alignment is nearby, at Con Paulos Chevrolet in Jerome.
The name “wheel alignment” is misleading because the wheels don’t go out of alignment. It’s actually the suspension that can become misaligned. Over time, the suspension parts can become worn, and the springs can get stretched out. A minor fender-bender, bumping into a curb, and driving over a pothole are some reasons the suspension components can become misaligned, causing the wheels to be seated at the incorrect angles. When you’re looking for wheel alignment in Twin Falls, bring your car to the Con Paulos Service Center. We’ll reset the suspension angles and get your vehicle back on the road quickly.
A wheel alignment will allow your car’s tires to wear more slowly and more evenly. With the cost of tires today, that could save you quite a bit of money. And your car will handle properly and drive straight. You’ll get better fuel economy because the tires will have less resistance.
Visit the Con Paulos Chevrolet Service Center for your next wheel alignment. Our experienced service technicians use the latest equipment to bring the suspension into its correct configuration. We’ll adjust the different suspension angles, called toe, thrust, camber and caster. We’ll also make sure the steering wheel is centered, and we’ll check to see if any of the suspension components are worn excessively.
Wheel Alignment near Twin Falls
There are different types of wheel alignment. The one used for your vehicle depends on its suspension.
Four-wheel alignment: This type of alignment is for cars with all-wheel drive or for front-wheel-drive vehicles with independent or adjustable rear suspensions. Both axles are correctly adjusted, so all four wheels align properly.
Front-end alignment: This is for cars that aren’t four- or all-wheel drive. Front-end alignment only adjusts the front wheels.
Thrust-angle alignment: The rear wheels and axle are aligned to be parallel with the front axle and perpendicular to the car’s center line.
