Proper Wheel Alignment Helps Burke, VA, Drivers Stay Safe in Snow | Wiygul Automotive Clinic

How important is proper wheel alignment for Burke, VA, driver safety? Well, a balanced wheel alignment could be the difference between complete control of your vehicle steering and braking systems during treacherous weather, and a compromised ability to swiftly and accurately respond to deteriorating driving conditions, especially in dangerously cold temperatures where time can save life and limb.

While something as simple as checking and adjusting your tire inflation pressure each month can go along way toward safety,   wheel alignment gives Burke, VA drivers the ultimate confidence their car is up to any driving challenge.

Unlike tire rotation and balancing, wheel alignment for Burke, VA, vehicles is designed to provide a complete health check of your tires, wheels, rims, steering, suspension and brakes. A four-wheel alignment performed at Wiygul Automotive Clinic, a Goodyear Tire & Service Network location, by an alignment specialist, measures and adjusts wheel angles to match your vehicle manufacturer specifications. In the end, an ASE-certified mechanic will perform wheel alignment in Burke, VA, to correctly set your wheel angles so they’re perfectly perpendicular to the ground and parallel to one another.

Not only does this assure you have the best response capabilities when driving, but it also helps balance vehicle economy with optimal performance. Adjustments made during a wheel alignment reduce tire wear, ensures your vehicle drives in a straight line without pulling to one side, and can produce specific desired handling characteristics.

Driving down the road on an ordinary day can throw your wheels out of alignment, with common road hazards from hitting a curb to normal wear from crumbling road conditions. Add in frozen, snowy terrain, and it’s a recipe for disaster for even the best drivers and vehicles. Remember, your tires and brakes are all that stand between you and a devastating car accident. Trust the auto service professionals at Wiygul Automotive Clinic to perform your next wheel alignment in Burke, VA, and to get you safely back on the road in no time.
