Start saving money with a wheel alignment!

Does your steering wheel vibrate while you’re driving around Albuquerque? Do you notice your car drifting to the side of the lane making you really concentrate on driving straight? These are signs that you are could need a wheel alignment, a maintenance service that has plenty of benefits to keep you on the road and save you money in the long run.

A wheel alignment is the simple task of adjusting the angles of your wheels so they are completely parallel with the other tires making them perpendicular to the road. Hitting a pothole or a curb can affect a tire’s alignment which can be detrimental to a vehicle and cause issues such as decreased MPG and loss of control. Although the actual service may seem meek, it is very valuable to a car owner.

  • Your car pulls to the right or left when you drive
  • The steering wheel of your car shakes while driving
  • You’ve hit a pot hole or speed bump at a moderate to high speed
  • You notice uneven wear on your tires, often more wear on the outside of a tire
