Wheel angles in the camber, caster, and toe, define how each wheel/tire assembly meets the steering components. Alignment service ensures that all these angles are at factory specifications. When wheels are in alignment, you can expect to get benefits such as improved riding comfort, improved handling, safety, extended tire life, and reduced operating costs.
Consequences of misaligned wheels are uneven tread wear, tire blowout, and safety concerns due to inaccurate steering and handling. At Marino Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Chicago, every 2-wheel alignment service features comprehensive inspections and actions performed by a certified technician who knows how to handle all of these issues.
Symptoms of Misaligned Wheels
When the wheels on your vehicle are misaligned, the consequences that normally show up first include uneven tread wear or rapidly wearing tires, which is also a sign you need your tire rotated.
Ignoring the symptoms of misaligned wheels will cause significant problems, if left unattended. With the risk of a tire blowout increasing as the symptoms get worse, you should never put off any of the warning signs that your tires are out of alignment. Here are the most common symptoms related to poor wheel alignment:
Two-wheel alignment is often referred to as a front-end alignment because it is usually applied to front-wheel drive vehicles that have a solid rear axle not requiring adjustment.
During service, a certified technician will use computerized equipment to evaluate the three primary wheel angles in the caster, toe, and camber. When the three wheel angles are set back to factory specifications, the front wheels will turn parallel to each other with tires meeting the road at a perfect 90-degree angle.
Service also includes an inspection of each tire’s tread depth, inflation, and adjustment. It concludes with an inspection of the exposed brake system components.
