Tire Alignment Service in Central Florida

You rely on your car to safely take you to your destination and perform reliably. Maintaining your car’s quality with regular tire maintenance keeps your vehicle in tip-top shape. Checking tire balance, rotation and alignment keeps your car driving smoothly and affordably by avoiding costly repairs and preventing accidents on the road.

What Is an Alignment?

Wheel alignments adjust the angles of your car’s tires so they properly and safely make contact with the road. Poor alignment and balancing can lead to vehicle suspension and handling issues, making your drive unsafe and your car more difficult to handle.

Different cars require different alignment specifications, so using a qualified mechanic ensures your tires are maneuvered into the safest and most accurate positions for your specific vehicle.

Why Get an Alignment?

Wheel alignments and tire balancing improve your safety on the road and reduce your vehicle expenses later on. Uneven tire wear means you have to replace your tires more often, increasing your costs and the amount of time you spend taking your car to be serviced.

Properly aligned tires improve your car’s handling and gas mileage, making your drive smoother and easier. Tire alignment helps keep you safer while driving, too. When a car’s tires are aligned, the vehicle drives straighter and handles better, reducing the chances of accidents on the road.

Regular tire maintenance saves you from paying for expensive repairs later on. Make sure to check your alignment, balance and tire inflation regularly. Properly inflated tires can extend the average tire life by 4,700 miles and can save you up to 11 cents a gallon.

Signs You Need an Alignment

If you aren’t getting your car inspected, there are signs you can look for to see if your car needs an alignment. Monitoring the state of your vehicle helps prevent long-term, costly issues and ensures you’re driving in a safe car. Check for:

  • Squealing tires
  • Uneven tire tread
  • Crooked steering wheel
  • Car pulling to one side
  • Unusual vibrations or thumping noises

Don’t wait to take your vehicle in. Correct alignment protects your car from further damage and makes it easier to drive your vehicle. If you find your car shows one or more of these signs, it could be time to get your tires checked.

When to Get an Alignment

Tire rotation, alignment and balancing help keep your vehicle running smoothly. Even if you aren’t experiencing any of the issues above, you should get an alignment:

  • When you get new tires
  • Any time suspension parts are adjusted or replaced
  • If it’s been over a year since your last alignment
  • If your car has a steering pull, uneven tire wear or an off-center steering wheel.
  • If you hit a curb or large pot-hole.

Tire Balancing and Rotation

Check your car regularly for issues to ensure you’re driving as safely as possible. In addition to alignment, tire balancing and rotation improve your vehicle safety.

Balancing checks your wheels and ensures they rotate properly. It also adjusts the weight distribution of the tires so your car does not shake when moving. Like alignment, tire rotation allows your wheels to wear evenly, improving their lifespan and your car’s gas mileage. Rotation is recommended every 5,000 miles in Florida for best performance.

Getting professional services like balancing and rotation together reduces the number of overall maintenance trips made to repair shops, saving you valuable time.
