Alignments at Orem’s Top Auto Shop
Alignments are a hugely important service that we offer at Master Muffler. When your vehicle’s alignment is off, then it can cause a host of problems that stretch from steering issues to a decline in fuel efficiency. On top of that, the rubber on your tires will wear away unevenly when the alignment is off. Because of this, the local Master Muffler in Orem is dedicated to ensuring that people are able to keep their vehicle’s on the road with our alignment services!
Wheel Alignment Appointments
At Master Muffler, our mechanics are dedicated to ensuring that your vehicle is operating at peak capacity, and that you are safe when you drive it. Our vehicle alignment services are comprehensive, and come with a warranty to ensure that the job is done right. We align each vehicle to the precise angles that each manufacturer recommends for the tire.
A wheel alignment servicing at Master Muffler includes the following:
- Adjustments on your front and rear tires, done according the the caster, camber, and toe angles of your vehicle.
- Suspension checks.
- Air pressure and tread checks on your tires.
- A road test to ensure the job was done right.
When your wheels have blemishes and imperfections in the rubber, it can cause one section of the tire to be heavier than the rest. This causes your wheels to be out of balance, and can make it feel as though your steering is misaligned. For this reason, we recommend checking the balance of your tires when you get your alignment checked. If your tires are off-balanced, then we can apply counterweights to the tire to make it evenly weighted.
When Do You Need an Alignment?
To be safe, get your alignment checked whenever you get an oil change (which is what many manufacturers recommend). On the other hand, a general rule of thumb is to get your alignment checked every 6 months, or every 6000 miles. However, if you think your steering is misaligned, then you should take it into a shop, right away.
Here are some ways that you can tell if your vehicle’s wheels are misaligned:
- Your steering pulls left or right.
- The tires of your vehicle wear down unevenly.
- Your tires squeal when driving.
- Your steering wheel is crooked when you drive straight.
