“ICBC-approved technology allows our technicians to complete wheel alignments with precision and accuracy”
Whether it’s as simple as a basic 4-wheel alignment or an in-depth performance 4-wheel alignment, an alignment itself in its most basic form consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. The purpose of these adjustments is maximum tire life and a vehicle that tracks straight and true when driving along a straight and level road.
Why Customers Choose Dale’s Auto Service:
At Dale’s, a proper wheel alignment always starts and ends with a road test. Our technicians will inspect the front end and steering linkage for wear before performing the alignment. The tires should all be in good shape with even wear patterns.
Pulling problems are not always related to wheel alignment. Problems with tires (especially unequal air pressure and radial ply tire pulls) and loose suspension parts can also be responsible. It is up to our wheel alignment technicians to determine the cause and inform you of what is required to successfully perform the alignment. If you have a tire with excessive camber wear, for instance, and you correct the alignment problem that caused that wear, the tire will now be making only partial contact with the road. Tire wear will continue. Our experienced alignment technicians know how to set up your vehicle to maintain good tire wear, get the most performance handling aspects out of your tires and provide a straight-ahead ride with the steering wheel centered.
You have probably heard the terms Camber, Caster and Toe-in. Below is a description of each of these alignment angles and how they affect handling, vehicle performance, steering and tire wear:
