Snowy winters in Burke, VA play havoc on our roads and highways leaving them overloaded with potholes which is a chief contributor for the misalignment of your wheels.

Avoiding Potholes in the Road

  • Keep your tires properly inflated to prepare for rough roads.
  • Do not tailgate. When you keep your distance from the driver in front of you , you can better see how their vehicle is responding to potentially bumpy roads so you might avoid a deep pothole.
  • Drive slower on rough, bumpy roads or pavement, especially in bad weather.

Other Things Contributing to Your Wheel‘s Alignment

  • Potholes
  • Hitting the curb
  • Bumping into the concrete parking stalls
  • Wear and tear

Wheels not in alignment will reduce the life of your tires by causing uneven tread wear more rapidly than properly aligned wheels. Wheels properly aligned will increase your fuel efficiency and maximize the life of your tires. This will also enhance your driving ability by keeping you and other passengers safe in Burke, VA.

Remember: Properly aligned wheels can save you money on tires and fuel.
