If you’ve run over a pothole or a curb recently and you notice your Chevy is pulling to the left or the right, the chances are your wheels are misaligned. Misaligned wheels can reduce the life of your tires by causing the treads to wear unevenly. When you have your vehicle’s wheels properly aligned by the professionals at the Chevrolet wheel alignment service near Pinehurst, you’ll drive more safely on the road, have more control and increase your tires’ life.
Alignment problems happen when the vehicle’s suspension and steering systems aren’t operating at their correct angles. Wheel alignment is a standard maintenance service that corrects alignment problems by resetting these angles. You can have a wheel alignment performed in Pinehurst by Chevrolet wheel alignment specialists at the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center. The service technicians will adjust the angles of your car, truck, SUV or van’s wheels to Chevrolet’s specifications. After your vehicle is properly aligned, it will drive straight, without any pulling.
You can check your owner’s manual to find out how often Chevrolet recommends getting your vehicle’s wheels aligned. In general, it’s a good idea to have the wheels aligned after a serious driving incident or whenever you replace steering or suspension components.
When you bring your Chevrolet to the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Department for a standard wheel alignment service, our certified technicians will use the most advanced computer technology to measure your Chevrolet’s camber, caster and toe. The technician will adjust these angles to match Chevrolet’s specifications, ensuring a smooth ride, even tire wear and efficient fuel economy. Our service technicians will also inspect and adjust your vehicle's suspension system, front and rear steering, tire air pressure, and tire wear and tire condition.
If your vehicle’s wheels are misaligned and you ignore the problem, it won’t go away by itself. These are some of the tire problems that can be caused when your Chevy’s wheels are out of alignment:
Feathering: The inner or outer edge of the tire is worn out. Each tread rib has a rounded edge on one side and a sharp edge on the other side. It’s caused by an incorrect toe.
One-side Wear: The inner or outer ribs of the tire wear out faster than the rest of the tire. This is caused by excessive camber.
Cup Wear: The tire has cupped dips around the edge of the tread on the inside or the outside. This is the result of worn-out or bent suspension parts.
