Go Straight: Wheel Alignment for Wayne Automobiles

Posted January 28, 2019 7:05 AM



Wayne drivers may have an alignment problem if their car drifts or pulls to one side, the steering wheel's off center, they notice uneven tire wear or the car doesn't feel like it handles right as they drive down Wayne, NJ, streets and roads.

When all of a vehicle's wheels are lined up exactly with each other, your wheels are in alignment. Running into potholes, smacking a curb or other objects around Wayne are great ways to knock a car out of alignment. Then one or more of your wheels start pulling in a slightly different direction and the problems begin.

The team at Bob Crevaux's Wayne Auto Works in Wayne wants you to know that driving for an extended time when your car is out of alignment causes your tires to wear unevenly and excessively. Sometimes the tire can be worn so badly that it will fail.

At the very least, those who drive with wheels out of alignment will have to replace their tires sooner. You could end up with premature wear to your suspension system, which can be expensive. The front wheel alignment is adjustable on all vehicles, and the back wheels are also adjustable on some cars.

Now, let's discuss some alignment basics. Wheels are adjustable for toe, caster and camber. The ideal alignment for your car was designed by its engineers.

So, what is involved in an alignment check at Bob Crevaux's Wayne Auto Works in Wayne? First, there's an inspection of the steering and suspension to see if anything is bent or broken. Tire condition will also be evaluated.  Next, the vehicle is put on an alignment rack and we take an initial alignment reading.

If all four wheels are adjustable, they are lined up perfectly parallel with the vehicle's centerline. If the back wheels aren't adjustable, the direction they push is determined and the front wheels are aligned to match.

Like most things, vehicle manufacturers have recommended a mileage interval for having alignment checked. But if you run into a curb, pothole or something else that's given you a big jolt, pay attention to whether your vehicle is pulling to one side when you drive around the Wayne area. It's better for vehicle owners to have their alignment checked before waiting to see if there is uneven tire tread wear; by then, the damage is done.

Getting your alignment checked at Bob Crevaux's Wayne Auto Works when necessary is a great way to extend the life of your tires and suspension parts. It also makes sure that your tire meets the road properly for maximum performance and safety in NJ.

Come see us at  for more information about your tire alignment. We look forward to serving you.

Testimonials

, 03/24/2020
I can't say enough great things about Bob and his team. Over the years I've brought my daily drivers and my classic muscle car in, and the level of service is nothing short of excellent. The care and expertise they have shown with my classic is second to none. I'm consistently impressed with their knowledge. The things they can do I can guarantee came from years of hands on work, and not from a manual! They are upfront and honest ....and will solve the problem no matter how difficult. Thanks as always guys!
