Wheel Alignments

If your vehicle is pulling from one side to another, or if one or more tires are showing signs of premature or uneven wear, you may need a wheel alignment. Look to your nearest Tirecraft dealer to help with the regular checks that will ensure proper wheel alignment and help you avoid costly repairs. Be sure to have your vehicle’s wheel alignment checked every six months or after you travel 10,000 km.

Wheel Alignments

You may need an alignment if:

  • You need to hold onto the steering wheel to drive straight ahead
  • You’ve just changed the tires
  • You’ve been involved in a collision
  • Steering or suspension parts such as tie rods, control arms, bushings or idler arm have been changed
  • You’ve driven the first 3,000 km in a new car
  • Your front-wheel-drive car just had a trans-axial repair

Wheel alignments typically take around a half an hour, during which time your service technician will check the pressure of your tires, your vehicle’s steering and suspension.

Wheels are adjusted through their three main parts:

  • The castor
  • The camber
  • The toe

Each part is returned to its original manufacturers specifications during the service.

Checking Sensors

Some Tirecraft locations also check the steering angle sensor—a feature of many late model vehicles—that senses where you’re holding the steering wheel in relation to the wheels. The sensor works with the stability control systems, and must be reset after a wheel alignment.

Did you know?

  • Most alignment work will not require new parts, though all tires should be the same size, style, and be properly inflated
  • While the rear suspension typically can’t be adjusted on a rear-wheel drive vehicle, front-wheel drive models should always get four-wheel alignment service

Visit your nearest Tirecraft to ensure that your wheels are aligned as they should be!
