Here at Premier Clearance Center Westbank, we know that an alignment is an important part of maintaining your vehicle. That’s why we provide this service through Toyota of New Orleans. Our service technicians will help you determine when your vehicle needs a wheel alignment and get it scheduled to get you back on the road.
The wheel alignment is what determines the angle of the tires and wheels and how all four wheels operate with each other. When the alignment is correct according to the manufacturer’s specifications, it provides stability for the vehicle and improves safety.
Over time, the wheels can get out of alignment. This often happens if you hit potholes or drive on rough surfaces, such as gravel. It can also happen in an accident. Once the wheels are out of alignment, the tires wear unevenly. You will need to replace the tires more often, and they may be at a greater risk for a flat or blow out as the tread becomes thin in some areas.
When you bring your vehicle to Toyota of New Orleans, the service technicians will check the alignment with a computerized program. They will tell you if you need a two-wheel or four-wheel alignment and use the computerized settings to align the wheels correctly. With a two-wheel alignment, the front wheels are aligned to factory specifications. For four-wheel alignment, all four wheels are reset at each angle.
Getting an alignment can save you money on tire replacement and help you enjoy a smoother ride. Give us a call to schedule an alignment for your vehicle today and keep it running reliably for you.
