Road hazards such as construction and cold-weather or rain can tear up the tires and damage the suspension or other parts of area vehicles despite every driver’s best efforts to protect their cars and trucks. What might feel like a short, jarring bump in the road can alter the wheel and tire alignment on your Clinton, MD automobile. Without a new alignment, the effects on the now misaligned tires increase, causing more damage.

The indicator most commonly noticed first is uneven wear of the tire tread. To stop this much damage from happening in the first place, drivers need to watch for other signs which appear much sooner and include the following:

Shaking or vibrating steering wheel

Difficult turning or steering at any speed

Drifting or pulling to one side on a flat road without touching the wheel

Noticeable reduction in fuel economy

Wiygul Automotive technicians train on and use the latest diagnostic equipment designed for wheel and tire alignment on Clinton, MD vehicles. They measure the suspension and adjust multiple angles on each tire to provide the most accurate contact with the road. The correct angles ensure a longer life for every tire and improve each vehicle performance. Each alignment they perform centers on three different angle factors:

Camber is the angle tied to the tire appearance while looking at them from the front of the vehicle. Each tire and wheel has an inward (negative) or outward (positive) camber, or tilt. This is normal, but too far, either way can cause the tread to unevenly wear the inside or outside of the tire’s center line. Our technicians use the manufacturer’s recommended camber for every vehicle.

Caster is the factor which allows your steering column to return the wheel to its ‘straight ahead’ position. It also provides each vehicle with the ability to travel straight with minimal or no steering. As with camber, every car or truck model has a positive or negative caster. Wiygul technicians use the manufacturer’s recommendations for each alignment.

Toe is the overhead view of your tires and the angle at which they turn inward or outward from straight ahead while driving. Wiygul technicians set each angle for the least resistance possible as the tires and wheels rotate. This factor adjustment prevents the uneven wear of a single tread block over the rest. It also reduces feathering, where one side of the tread turns rough while smoothing it on the other side.

At every Wiygul Automotive Clinic, each wheel and tire alignment for Clinton, MD vehicles is $99.99 and comes with a 2 year / 24-month warranty. Our technicians work on every major domestic and foreign model available in today’s market.
