No matter your vehicle’s make or model, we’ll use our state-of-the-art equipment to get it back on track, driving straight and true. Customers across Des Moines, IA put their trust in us to restore the smoothness and stability to their vehicle.
Signs You Need an Alignment
The most common sign your vehicle needs an alignment is pulling to the left or right—especially if you let go of the steering wheel on a straight road. Another common sign to watch out for is uneven tread wear. If the outer or inner edges of the tire are wearing faster than the center, it’s a sign your vehicle may need an alignment (and likely a tire rotation). It’s also important to keep an eye out for a loss of fuel efficiency or handling issues—both of which may indicate alignment issues.
Alignments need to be done right. Our technicians will adjust the camber, caster and toe of each wheel to make sure they’re straight and true. We can also balance tires and make sure your suspension is in good condition to support the alignment.
If necessary, our technicians may also recommend a tire rotation to even-out the tread wear caused by a car out of alignment. In some extreme cases, new tires might be appropriate. Rest assured, we’ll give you a full report of the situation, so you can make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.
