As we thaw out from the snow (soon we hope), and look forward to sunny days ahead, it is a good time to take care of your vehicle as we prep for spring and summer. One common service people have done on their vehicles is a wheel alignment, and it's vital to your car's longevity and performance.
Usually, when people come in and see any one of our service pros across Long Island to get their snow tires off, they check to see if they need a wheel alignment done, too. Why? Well, after a winter of snow on the roads, potholes, and uneven surfaces everywhere, there's a possibility your wheels could not be properly aligned, and it is best to make sure.
What is the benefit of a wheel alignment? For starters, you sets of tires will last longer with aligned wheels, as they will be positioned correctly, and have a firm grip of the road. It also improves the steering and handling of your vehicle, plus, let's not forget the benefit it has on fuel economy, as it will make sure your MPG doesn't dip during the duration of ownership.
How do you know if you need a wheel alignment? Well, you are noticing the vehicle pulling to the left or right, see uneven or rapid tire wear, squealing tires, or your steering wheel is crooked when driving straight, those are the four major signs.
If that's the case, be sure to schedule a service appointment with any one of our dealerships across Long Island, and they'd be happy to help you, and have you on your way to feeling confident, and driving straight and firm this spring and summer with a wheel alignment in Long Island.
