Four Wheel Alignments

The Importance of Computerized Four Wheel Alignments

The most important factors to ensure a long life for your tires is to perform a four wheel alignment under standard maintenance intervals. The vehicle which is properly aligned will ride smoother more comfortably than a misaligned vehicle and will last longer and corner predictably under any road conditions.

Practically it doesn’t matter if your vehicle is front, rear or all wheel driven since there are specifications provided by the vehicles manufacturer. It’s essential to perform a proper alignment on a late model computerized alignment system to achieve maximum accuracy at all times.

Alignments should be performed every second year at latest to compensate for suspension component changes over time and counter the effects of road damage to the suspension components.

A precision tuned aligned suspension not just safer but saves fuel and suspension and tire wear as tires are intended to last a very long time by their respective manufacturers.

An out of alignment vehicle may pull or drift and corner poorly due to the drive train reacting to the vehicles misaligned tires. It’s literally becomes a tug of war between components which in turn may cause additional problems, for example  in foul weather may cause a loss of control, if not corrected properly.

We have just invested in a new German ( Hoffmann) top of the line scissor lift and the best alignment machine with the dual auto tracking camera system equipped wheel aligner.

Worth to note: As you can see on the photos the Hoffman 3D imaging alignment machine clamps on the tire not on the rim, preventing any rim or paint damage on the rim.

Also we balance our customer’s wheels on a Hoffman laser wheel balancer. This German made wheel balancer measures the wheel and tire with a laser beam, and calculates the weights needed for a smooth ride.

Our Hoffman laser wheel  balancer also detects any rim and tire damage, if there is any.
