Not doing your alignment may cause costly repair, while getting it done is normally quick and inexpensive. You should get your wheels aligned once every 6,000 miles or so.
Oil changes are recommended every 3,000 miles. So, every other time you come in for an oil change, it’s recommended your wheels also get aligned.
Your steering wheel shaking at higher speeds is from your car fighting itself to compensate for bad alignment.
Loss of tread causes the vehicle to slip tiny amounts when turning, causing the loud squeeling sound we all hate.
Your car will generally pull left or right when one pair of wheels is similarly out of alignment.
Routine maintenance of your valuable assets is a wise idea in any scenario. Delayed maintenance almost always leads to repairs costing many times more than the maintenance would have cost. Not only is it harder on your finances to hold off on car maintenance, but it’s also much less safe.
Technology has changed over the years, and we now use the most advanced wheel alignment technology available to ensure precision, safety, and peace-of-mind.
The adaptor design on the Hawkeye Elite wheel alignment system eliminates the need for knob turning, using quick latch mechanisms, saving your time for you.
The Quick Comp design captures all initial measurements in a single motion and compensates all 4 tires simultaneously.
The Hawkeye Elite wheel alignment system automatically recalls the OEM specs of your vehicle, making perfect adjustments every time.
Zero metal-to-metal contact eliminates the chance of scratching expensive, polished metal rims, leaving your car looking as great as when you brought it in.
Our auto shop in New Berlin uses the most advanced wheel alignment technology available from Hunter Elite Engineering Company. The system features QuickGrip Adaptors requiring no metal-to-metal contact, so your rims or hubcaps or any other part doesn’t get scratched, dented, or damaged in any way.
You may be coming in to get your wheels aligned, but you shouldn’t have to request a damage-free experience. Here at Ravenswood, we diagnose and fix cars’ damage; not create the damages.
When your wheels are not accurately aligned, it causes uneven wear and tear on your tires, which could a number of unpleasant effects on your life.
Catching the damage early is important for your safety, the safety of everyone in your vehicle, and the safety of other motorists and pedestrians outside your car. Wear and tear on your tires may lead to punctures or rips; the tire may explode, even.
We can't all drive semi-trucks. Not every vehicle has 17 other wheels to keep it straight when one tire explodes. Most vehicles are immobilized by a flat or exploded tire. Make sure you aren't caught off guard. Schedule your alignment today.
The constant pull to one side also puts a strain on a gang of other parts of your car.
It also affects your car's suspension.
The suspension is a system made of intricately balanced and interdependent parts in which, if one of the components is off, the entire system works inefficiently. Damaged suspension feeds back into the tires being quickly worn feeds back into worse suspension and dangerous driving conditions. Suspension repairs require a lot of labor and are often very costly.
Dangerous driving is irresponsible to yourself and everyone around you.
Please, drive safely, and have your car serviced to avoid disaster.
