Wheel Alignment Services

During our Free Alignment Check, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to see if your wheels meet your vehicle manufacturer’s precise alignment specifications. This complimentary service includes:

  • Measuring your vehicle's wheel angles to determine if they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other
  • Inspecting your tires, suspension, and steering components for damage or wear

If it turns out you need an alignment, our experienced technicians will carefully restore your wheels to their proper alignment. This service includes:

  • Making front-end and/or rear-end mechanical alignment adjustments
  • Verifying that your new alignment readings meet your vehicle manufacturer's specifications (if applicable)

Opt in to our 3-Year Alignment package for a thorough alignment check and maintenance every 6 months or 6,000 miles (whichever comes first), and save up to $300.00 more than if you were to pay for each alignment individually.

The 3-Year Alignment program includes the following services:

  • A thorough alignment check
  • Careful inspection of your tire condition, air pressure, steering, and suspension
  • A detailed printout of our alignment test readings for your records
  • Front-end and/or rear-end mechanical adjustments, if needed
  • A series of electronic and road tests to confirm that our alignments meet your vehicle manufacturer’s specifications
  • A nationwide limited warranty for coverage no matter where you go

WHEN YOUR VEHICLE MAY NEED AN ALIGNMENT

  • Your tires or tread are worn on one edge—the surest sign of misaligned wheels.
  • Your vehicle pulls left or right when you’re cruising a straight, smooth road.
  • Your steering wheel shimmies, feels loose, or is hard to turn.

Normal road wear can knock your vehicle’s wheels out of alignment, and if your vehicle comes in contact with potholes or curbs, the consequences can range from minor (tires that wear out too soon) to major (poor handling).

Why is a Wheel Alignment Important?

By reducing steering pull and vehicle wander, proper wheel alignment produces a smoother ride. Adhering to a proper alignment schedule may potentially save money in unnecessary tire replacement costs related to early tread wear.

When is a Wheel Alignment Needed?

A four-wheel alignment is recommended to be performed at least once a year, according to most manufacturers. Other times you could require a four-wheel or front-end alignment include: after you've had a new set of tires installed, after your vehicle may have struck a pothole or a steep curb, as well as after you've been in an accident or collision.

ASK A MECHANIC: COMMON ALIGNMENT QUESTIONS

Most auto service shops, including all Just Tires centers, can perform either a "front-end" alignment or a "four-wheel" alignment, depending on the symptoms you are experiencing.

A wheel alignment is an automotive service that refers to a vehicle's suspension and steering components being in good working order, while the tire and wheel assemblies are running straight and true. For uniform tread wear and accurate steering, proper alignment is required. Uneven front- or rear tire wear, as well as changes in your vehicle's handling or steering response (i.e. pulling to one side), can all be signs of misalignment.

Depending on the symptoms you're having your car may require a "front-end" adjustment or a "four-wheel" alignment. The moderate cost of getting your car aligned may more than pay for itself in terms of tire usage, performance, and comfort.

You should get your alignment checked once a year or if you detect unusual tire wear, a misaligned steering wheel, or a steering system drift.
A wheel alignment affects the angles at which your tires make contact with the road by adjusting your vehicle's suspension rather than the tires or wheels themselves. This aids in optimum tread wear and steering precision.

Tire balancing (also known as wheel balancing) and tire alignment are two distinct treatments that can correct irregularities in your vehicle that occur over time.

Tire balancing is a tire maintenance service that will correct any unevenness in a vehicle’s tires produced by ongoing tread wear. It’s recommended to have a tire and wheel balancing service performed every 3,000-6,000 miles, every six months, or whenever an odd vibration is noticed.

As stated above, performing a tire alignment works to adjust your vehicle's suspension to correct the angle of your wheels. This will aid in optimum tire tread wear and steering precision. Checking each tire’s alignment should be conducted at least once a year, or if you happen to see or feel any unusual tire wear, a crooked steering wheel, or a steering system drift.

The simple answer is yes, hitting potholes while driving can cause misalignment. More information on coping with pothole damage may be found in our article Your Car and Potholes: The Known and Unknown Damages.
