Wheel Alignment in Fort Wayne, Indiana
Understanding the Importance of Properly Aligned Wheels
What Is Wheel Alignment Service?
Drivers know that proper wheel alignment equals tack-sharp control and handling. Here at Yeoman Service Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana, we have the equipment and know-how to get your wheels tracking straight and true in no time. Wheel alignment is how your wheels and tires relate to the rest of your vehicle, including the suspension and steering. It’s a complex system, and if any part isn’t in correct placement, even if it’s off by even a small amount, you’ll notice that handling suffers. Your steering won’t be as precise, and it will decrease your control. When we perform alignment service, we examine and adjust the three angles of each wheel: camber, toe, and caster. These refer to how your wheels sit on the axis relative to the vehicle. A deviation of just a couple of degrees will mean that your vehicle may not handle as it should. It takes special techniques to perform this intricate service, but rest assured we are properly equipped.
What Are Signs You Need Wheel Alignment?
Your vehicle may not be able to talk, but it can still alert you to problems via physical and visual clues. One of the most common signs of misalignment includes a vehicle that pulls to one side when driving straight and requires input from you to stay in a straight line. Another common symptom is an off-centered steering wheel. If you need to forcefully keep your wheel in the center even if you drive straight, your alignment is likely off. Strange noises can also be a sign, such as squeaking and squealing, as you steer. Additional indicators involve the tires. Because the wheels and tires are directly related, misalignment can make itself known by uneven or excessive tire wear patterns. If you notice any of these characteristics as you drive, visit your nearest auto service center right away.
