Wheel alignments are a routine vehicle maintenance service, and a wheel alignment inspection should be pursued annually whether you feel your car is out of alignment or not. In a wheel alignment at Stephen Wade Chevrolet, our certified technicians inspect your wheels for a variety of issues related to how they roll, literally, down the road. If we detect any associated issues, such as uneven tire wear, we can also assist with tire replacement if necessary.
When you are unsure if you need a Chevrolet wheel alignment but want a check, our technicians can examine your vehicle’s key alignment points to determine if a service is needed. An alignment check can cover either two wheels or all four wheels on your vehicle.
In a two-wheel alignment, only your front wheels are adjusted. This procedure is primarily used for larger vehicles as most larger automobiles have an extremely solid rear axle that helps avoid many common alignment issues experienced by smaller vehicles.
In a four-wheel alignment, all four of your tires are aligned. This means we check all of your tires and make minute adjustments to ensure each is hitting the road evenly and all are traveling forward in the right direction perfectly. A four-wheel alignment is recommended annually, but you may require service more quickly if you hit a major pothole or run over a curb.
An alignment can feel a bit like geometry class when you think about it. Our certified technicians use angles to determine if your wheels are no longer “aligned” with each other and various other points on the automobile properly. Picture it like the way feet can start to turn in or out, and a custom foot insert is needed to correct the stride. The alignment corrects the way your car rolls by adjusting the way your wheels and tires hit the pavement. Common problems are the tires turning in slightly, leaning out, tilting in, or no longer sitting at the proper angle when compared to your vehicle’s steering axles.
