If you’ve run over a large pothole or bounced over a curb, it can leave your car with misaligned wheels. If the wheels have become misaligned, you’ll notice the vehicle pulling to the left or the right. Ignoring this problem will result in uneven wear to the tire treads, which will shorten the life of the tires. If you believe your car’s wheels have become misaligned, head over to Knudtsen Chevrolet for wheel alignment in Liberty Lake. You’ll have more control behind the wheel, and the tires will last longer.
When the wheels become misaligned, it means the suspension and steering systems are operating at the wrong angles. When the service technicians align the wheels, they’ll reset the angles according to the manufacturer’s specifications. In Liberty Lake, wheel alignment specialists are available at nearby Knudtsen Chevrolet. Once the wheels are properly aligned, the car will drive straight once again, without pulling to the side.
You’ll find detailed recommendations for your vehicle’s wheel alignment in the owner’s manual. The rule of thumb is to have the wheels aligned after you’ve experienced a serious driving event such as a collision, and whenever you replace steering or suspension mechanisms.
When you bring your car, truck, SUV or van to the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center for a wheel alignment, our professional service technicians will use the latest equipment to measure and adjust your vehicle’s suspension and steering components. The result will be a smoother ride, better fuel economy and tires that wear evenly. Plus, our service technicians will inspect and fine-tune the suspension system, the front and rear steering, the tire air pressure and the general condition of the tires.
If your car needs a wheel alignment, don’t put it off. A vehicle that doesn’t ride straight isn’t safe to drive. The tires may develop one of the following problems if the car is driven while the wheels are misaligned:
Cup Wear: Cup wear is the result of bent or worn suspension components. Cupped dips develop around the inside or outside edge of the tire tread.
One-side Wear: One-side wear occurs when there is too much camber. The inner or outer ribs of the tire wear out faster than the rest of the tire.
Feathering: Feathering causes wear on the tire’s inner or outer edge. You’ll notice the tread ribs developing a sharp edge on one side and a rounded edge on the other side.
