Wheel Alignment in Newport News, VA
So, your car pulls harder than a leashed pit bull and eats tires for breakfast lunch and dinner. People have told you your car needs an alignment, but what does that really mean? Wheel alignment is the system of angles designed into the vehicle's suspension. In most cases, these angles can be adjusted to allow your vehicle to handle better.
The main adjustment angles are camber, caster and toe.
- Camber is the angle between the vertical centerline of the wheel and the true angle as seen from the front.
- Caster is the angle formed between a true vertical line and a line through the center of the steering axis as seen from the side of the vehicle.
- Toe is the difference in distance measured across the front and rear of the tires.
If your vehicle is handling poorly or exhibits abnormal tire wear, it may be time for an alignment.
