Running over a large pothole or curb can be jarring, but did you know it could leave your vehicle with misaligned wheels? Driving on wheels that aren’t aligned can result in uneven tire tread wear, which will shorten the life of the tires. If you believe your car needs a wheel alignment, head over to the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center in Post Falls, ID. If you live in Spokane, the wheel alignment specialists at Knudtsen Chevrolet will align your vehicle’s wheels according to the manufacturer’s specifications. Your tires will last longer, and you’ll have better control on the road
When your car’s wheels become misaligned, the suspension and steering systems aren’t working at the correct angles. Wheel alignment service resets the angles to the standard set by the vehicle’s manufacturer. If you need a wheel alignment in Spokane Valley, the experienced service technicians at the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center will get your car driving straight, without pulling to the right or left.
Check the owner’s manual if you’re not sure when to get your vehicle’s wheels aligned. In general, it’s a good idea to have the wheels aligned whenever you replace the steering or suspension systems, or after you’ve had a serious event such as an accident.
When you visit the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Department for a wheel alignment, our professional service technicians will measure your car’s suspension components and correct the angles to meet the manufacturer’s specifications. It doesn’t matter which make and model you drive, or if you have a new model or an older car, truck, SUV or van. After we align your vehicle’s wheels, the tires will wear evenly, you’ll enjoy a smooth ride, and the car will get better fuel economy. Additionally, our technicians will inspect and adjust the steering and suspension, and we’ll check the tires and the tire air pressure.
If you suspect your vehicle needs a wheel alignment, it’s essential to bring it in for service right away. A car that pulls to the right or left can be dangerous to drive. It can also damage the tires, in the form of cup wear, one-side wear or feathering:
Cup Wear: This condition is the result of bent or worn suspension components. The tires develop cupped dips around the inside or outside edge of the tread.
One-side Wear: This can occur due to excessive camber. The inner or outer ribs of the tire wear out more quickly than the rest of the tire.
Feathering: Feathering is characterized by tread ribs with a rounded edge on one side and a sharp edge on the other side. The tire’s inner or outer edge will be worn out.
Wheel alignment is fast and easy when you bring your car to expert technicians at the Knudtsen Chevrolet Service Center. We’ll align the wheels quickly and get your vehicle driving safely again.
