Schedule Car or Truck Maintenance or Wheel Alignment in Thunder Bay Ontario
Trust the professionals at Driven Cars Canada to fix your wheel alignment in Thunder Bay
Your wheels should be parallel to each other and perpendicular to the road at all times. Correctly aligned wheels rely on the angles of the camber, caster, and toe. The camber measures the angle that the wheel stands relative to the road. Caster represents the angle of the wheel’s pivot when viewed from the side. The toe is the angle that refers to the directional difference between the tire and the centerline of the vehicle. All three of these angles need to be in line for the vehicle to drive efficiently and safely.
How do wheels get out of alignment?
Bumping a curb or even driving over a small pothole can throw your alignment off. Accidents can obviously impact your wheels’ alignment as well. Even minor changes to your wheel alignment can cause major problems and increased tread wear on your tires. Serious damages to your suspension and steering systems can result from wheel alignment issues that go unresolved. It’s recommended that you get your wheel alignment check about every 6,000 miles or once a year.
