It is important to keep your vehicle’s tires properly aligned and balanced. we use a computerized wheel alignment machine to align your suspension. Because “eyeing it” will never get the job done as well as our GM approved equipment. When your vehicle’s suspension is aligned properly you should have no problem dricing ina straight line. Meaning, your vehicle will not pull to one side of the other.

How do I know if I need an alignment?
Your local technician or mechanic can tell you if your alignment is off kilter. Or if need be you can check with a couple basic methods. If the alignment is bad your steering wheel may be at an improper angle while driving on a straight a way. Another way of checking your alignment is to see if the vehicle veers to the left or the right when it should be going straight. These are clear signs that the vehicle’s alignment is off and should be readjusted.
Tire balances should be preformed each time the tire is removed from the rim, this includes; post tire repair, the purchase of new tires, or after resealing the tire or stem. Unbalanced tires can cause dangerous driving conditions, reduce MPGs, and wear tires improperly.
A Tire Balance consists of applying small weights to the inside of the wheel to ensure the tire and wheel are rotating evenly throughout the entire rotation.
How do I know if my tires are unbalanced?
If during driving on the highway you feel a ‘wobble’ or ‘shaking’ during braking, there is a good change there is a wheel balance issue. Another means of checking for an unbalanced wheel is to look for flat spots on the tire, or missing weights from the side of the rim.
