Routine roadwork, potholes, and other hazards wreak havoc on area vehicles despite a driver’s best efforts to protect his car or truck. What might feel like a small bump can cause damage to the suspension and break down the wheel and tire alignment on your Burke, VA automobile, all of which increases over time without repair or service.

The most visible indication of a tire misalignment is uneven tread wear. It should not be the first sign, though, that you see in your truck or car. Other signs to be aware of when operating your vehicle include:

Drifting or pulling to one side

The steering wheel shaking at slower speeds

Difficult steering or turning at any speed

Faster fuel consumption, leading to additional fuel cost

At Wiygul Automotive, our service teams train on the latest equipment created for wheel and tire alignment on each Burke, VA vehicle. Technicians measure every suspension and adjust the angle of the tires to maintain full contact with the road surface. Accurate measurement ensures a longer life for the tires and improves the overall driving performance.

Every alignment requires a close examination of three aspects:

Camber – This aspect is simply how your tires appear while looking from the front of the vehicle. Each tire and wheel combo has an inward (negative) or outward (positive) camber, or tilt. This is normal, so there is always a small amount in either direction, but too far, either way, can cause the tread to wear unevenly inside or outside of the tire’s center line. Wiygul technicians use the manufacturer’s recommended tilt for every vehicle.

Toe – This alignment aspect is the overhead view of your tires and the angle at which they turn inward or outward while driving. Wiygul technicians set each angle for the least possible amount of resistance from the road as the tire and wheel combo rotates. This alignment action prevents the uneven wear of one tread block over the rest. It also reduces the feathering effect, which grinds one side of the tread rough while smoothing the tread on the other side.

Caster – This is the aspect which, after each turn, is what allows your steering column to return the wheel to its ‘straight ahead’ position. It also allows each vehicle to travel straight with no or only minimal steering. Every car or truck model has its positive or negative caster. Wiygul technicians use the manufacturer’s recommended settings for the best results.

With few exceptions, wheel and tire alignment for Burke, VA cars and trucks are $99.99. All Wiygul Automotive Clinic service every major foreign and domestic model. Each alignment comes with a 2 year / 24-month warranty, just like our other services. For more information on alignments and our current, special offers, contact us today at 866-702- 8050.
