What Should I Do Before I Get A Wheel Alignment
  • the vehicle suspension and tires must be checked by a professional
  • bad parts or tires found during the inspection must be repaired or replaced before you align your vehicle
 ***wheel alignment should not be done when vehicle has bad parts/tires
Should I get New Tires Before I Get An Alignment?
  • older or worn tires will not affect the process of aligning your vehicle, BUT
  • they could affect the way your vehicle drives even after an alignment
 *** tires are safe/good, or they are not, ask a tire specialist if you are uncertain
What Can I Do To Extend The Life Of My Tires And Get Better Fuel Mileage?
Tire Pressure, Tire Pressure, Tire Pressure - Properly Inflated Tires
  • run cooler
  • helps tires maintain a equal rolling diameter in relation to each other
  • carry the load more evenly
  • has less rolling resistance
  • improved fuel mileage
  • less tire wear
  • a good tire foot print on the ground improves tire wear, braking and handling
  • fewer tire blow-outs and damage to equipment due to under-inflated tires
Tire Rotation
  • steer tires turn left, right, up, down and in turns your tires will speed up, slow down and even lay over a bit
  • with a perfect alignment, steer tires still wear a bit, this wear also causes your tires to go out of balance
  • Have your tires rotated regularly by a professional!
 
Non Directional Tires
  • light duty, by rotating your tires regularly, steer tires can clean up if the wear is not to bad
  • heavy duty steer tire rotation side to side helps, and front to back if the tread pattern allows
  • heavy duty drive dual tire rotation, all drive positions wear at a different rate, move the fastest wearing position to the slowest
      and so on with the remaining dual sets
Directional Tires
  • not mush to say here, they can only rotate in one direction, your only option is straight front to back on the same side.
  • Always consult with a tire specialist if you are uncertain if your tires are directional, Always!
Tire Balance - There Are Two Types Of Balance
​Static & Dynamic
  • Static Balance - weight is applied to the wheel, needing to be re-balanced as the tread of the tire wears over time​
  • Dynamic Balance - balance continues to adjust itself as the tread wears, not needing to be manually re-balanced​
 
How Often?
  • light duty, depending on use, about every 5000 - 7500 miles, more often if on and off road, or with rotation
  • heavy duty, depending on use, about every 12000 - 15000 miles or with rotation
