Four Wheel Alignment
When is Alignment Needed?
Wheel alignment maximizes the life of your tires as well as increases fuel efficiency and decreases stress to other vehicle components. Wheel balancing and tire rotations are separate services that can't replace a proper wheel alignment. Wheel alignment is also known as tire alignment and front end alignment, not to be confused with our front end repair & service.
Alignment problems can be caused by car accidents, front end damage or even minor errors such as hitting a curb or pothole, braking too hard and even simple wear and tear. Most vehicles need the alignment checked every 10,000 miles of driving.
If you find steering pulling to one side while driving, or steering feels too loose or tight, it may be time for a wheel alignment from McWhorter.
Why McWhorter for Alignments?
- McWhorter offers FREE wheel alignment checks. If you aren't sure if an alignment is needed, we will inspect your vehicle and tell you before purchase.
- McWhorter locations utilize computerized alignment and decades of experience from our in house mechanics. Even a computer can't replace the expertise of an ASE and I-Car certified technician.
An alignment is adjusting the angle of your wheels to a set position. We start with analysis of the tire tread depths for signs of poor alignment and excessive, uneven wear. Then we move to the toe, camber and caster, which measure wheel orientation.
After an alignment check, we look at the manufacturer guidelines, however these can be very broad. If we only set a computer to align your wheels, you wouldn't receive the best wear on tires. It takes an understanding and analysis of how you drive and the expertise of a mechanic, to narrow the window of specs from the manufacturer to deliver the best alignment possible. There's is better, ours is best. Use McWhorter for a wheel alignment and earn a guaranteed safer and cost effective ride!
