We’ve all experienced the jolt that comes with running over a large pothole or driving over a curb. These situations can cause your vehicle’s wheels to become misaligned. When this happens, you may notice your car pulling to the left or right. Misaligned wheels can result in uneven tread wear, which can lead to shorter tire life. If you’ve hit a bump and believe your car’s wheels are out of alignment, drive over to the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center, the best place for a wheel alignment in Spokane Valley.
When your car’s wheels are misaligned, it means the steering and suspension systems aren’t at the correct angles. A wheel alignment restores the angles to the manufacturer’s specifications. If you live in Spokane Valley, wheel alignment service is close by. The experts at Knudtsen Chevrolet in Post Falls, ID, are less than 30 minutes away. When you visit our service center for a wheel alignment, our expert service technicians will align the wheels correctly, and you’ll drive straight and true.
You should find information about your car’s wheel alignment specification in the owner’s manual. A general rule is to have the wheels aligned after you replace the steering mechanism or suspension. It’s also important to get the wheels aligned after a fender-bender or another serious driving situation.
During a wheel alignment, our service technicians will use the latest equipment to measure your car’s steering and suspension components. They’ll adjust the angles to match the manufacturer’s specifications. The result will be a smoother ride, even tire wear, and better fuel economy. The technicians will inspect and fine-tune the front and rear steering and suspension systems. They’ll also check the condition of the tires and the air pressure.
If your car needs a wheel alignment, don’t delay. A vehicle that’s not driving straight can be dangerous to operate. Additionally, driving with misaligned wheels can cause these tire problems:
Cup Wear: This is the result of worn or bent suspension components. The tires develop cupped dips around the inside or outside edge of the tire tread.
Feathering: The inner or outer edge of the tire is worn out. You’ll see tread ribs that display a rounded edge on one side and a sharp edge on the other side.
One-side Wear: This is when the inner or outer tire ribs wear out more quickly than the rest of the tire. One-side wear is the result of excessive camber (wheels that are tilted inward or outward at the top).
If you notice your car pulling to the left or right, the expert service technicians at the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center are here to assist you. We’re less than a half-hour from Spokane Valley. We’ll align your vehicle’s wheels quickly to get you back behind the wheel of your car, driving safely.
