What is a wheel alignment?

Believe or not, when a wheel alignment is performed it is not actually an adjustment of the tires or wheels. A wheel alignment involves adjusting the the vehicle's suspension and properly aligning how the tires angle with the road. When our vehicle technicians at Awesome Ford check out your vehicle's wheel alignment, they inspect for issues with the tires turning inward or "toe alignment", the caster angle which assists in steering and balance, and the camber which is the inward/outward angle of your tires. wheel alignment is a part of regular vehicle maintenance and is important to do regularly.

Why wheel alignment is Important

Since your tires are what separates your vehicle from the road, it makes sense that taken care of them is crucial to your safety and your vehicle's performance. When your alignment is off, it can alter the way your vehicle steers and you might feel a pulling to one side that could potentially affect how your drive and your safety. If your alignment is off it can also create inconsistent wear on your tires, making their lifespan shorter and requiring you to purchase tires more often. It should be on your calendar to bring your car in every five thousand miles or so to make sure your wheels are aligned properly, even if you don't notice an issue when driving.

How Wheel Alignments Are Done

The process of doing a wheel alignment is actually more complicated than many people think. This is why many Chehalis residents choose to bring their vehicle to Awesome Ford to have this service done. First of all, your vehicle is put up on a jack so that it is elevated off the ground and the wheels can be checked properly. Next our vehicle technicians check the toe, thrust, camber, and caster of your wheels. Different vehicles require their wheels to be at different angles/degrees. We check your specific vehicle's requirements and make sure they match up properly before finishing your alignment and sending you on your way.

How to Tell if You Need A Wheel Alignment

When driving, try to notice if you feel a pulling sensation on your steering wheel. If you do, this means you probably have a somewhat serious wheel alignment issue that needs to be addressed. When parked, inspect your tires for uneven wear and tear, if you notice more wear on the inside or outside of your tires, or inconsistent wear on the front and back tires, you could have a wheel alignment issue with your vehicle.
