Ensure your tires are in optimal condition with precise alignment services at Fink's Car Care.

Alignment Services
Wheel alignment, a fundamental aspect of regular car maintenance, entails the precise adjustment of wheel angles to align with the manufacturer's specifications. This process ensures that your suspension and steering systems operate at optimal angles, ultimately reducing tire wear. Alignment is a complex task and our skilled experts who excel in this field can guarantee precision and quality.

Alignment FAQs

How long does a full alignment take?

Wheel alignments typically take one hour for both two-wheel and four-wheel drive vehicles. However, excessive wear and tear on suspension components like bushings, track rods, or the system itself can require replacements, extending the service time.

What happens if you wait too long for an alignment?

Tire alignment is crucial for maintaining optimal tire performance and lifespan. Even slight misalignments, undetectable to the naked eye but measurable in tenths of degrees or hundredths of inches, can lead to premature and uneven wear. As time passes, this wear becomes more pronounced, impacting both safety and fuel efficiency. To avoid these issues, regular alignment checks every 6,000 miles are recommended.

What is checked during an alignment?

Three crucial aspects are assessed during a tire alignment inspection: camber, toe, and caster. Camber refers to the angle formed by the vertical axis of the tire and a line perpendicular to the road surface, as viewed from the front. When the top of the tire tilts inwards, creating an "X" shape with the wheels, it's considered negative camber. This can increase wear on the tire's inner edge through increased friction.

Do I need an alignment after replacing tires?

The answer is yes! A proper wheel alignment ensures precise angles between wheels and the road, maximizing tire life, enhancing handling, and distributing wear evenly across the tread. This translates to better fuel efficiency, safer driving, and a more enjoyable ride.

Great service, one of the very few places I've found that can do an alignment on a long wheelbase truck.
