Wheel Alignment Appointments
At Master Muffler, our mechanics are dedicated to ensuring that your vehicle is operating at peak capacity, and that you are safe when you drive it. Our vehicle alignment services are comprehensive, and come with a warranty to ensure that the job is done right. We align each vehicle to the precise angles that each manufacturer recommends for the tire.
A wheel alignment servicing at Master Muffler includes the following:
- Front and rear steering adjustments, done according to the camber, caster, and toe angles on your vehicle.
- A suspension system check.
- Tire tread and air pressure checks.
- A road test after the vehicle’s alignment is complete.
If one of your tires has an imperfection or problem in the rubber, then it can throw the balance off on your vehicle, which makes it seem like the steering is misaligned, due to the fact that one section of the tire will be heavier than the rest. For this reason, we offer wheel balancing services, where we use a computer to identify which wheel needs to be balanced, and then use weights to counterbalance the heavy spots in the tire.
When Do You Need an Alignment?
To be safe, get your alignment checked whenever you get an oil change (which is what many manufacturers recommend). On the other hand, a general rule of thumb is to get your alignment checked every 6 months, or every 6000 miles. However, if you think your steering is misaligned, then you should take it into a shop, right away.
Here are some ways that you can tell if your vehicle’s wheels are misaligned:
- Your steering pulls you to the left or the right.
- The rubber on your tires is wearing down unevenly or noticeably quicker than their recommended lifespan.
- Your tires squeal when you are driving.
- Your steering wheel is misaligned, but your vehicle is still driving straightforward.
