While it is true that you may not often think about your vehicle’s steering and suspension systems, they are both crucial to the overall handling, drivability, and safety of your vehicle. Because of that, it is imperative to keep these systems maintained and in good working order in order for you to maintain total control over your vehicle. While we are proud to offer comprehensive suspension service and repair at Mueller’s Auto we want to stress the importance of regular wheel alignment. And when it comes to wheel alignment, Pueblo drivers recommend our service more than any other local mechanic.
What is a Wheel Alignment?
When you are driving, it is important that your tires are in contact with the road at the appropriate angle. While it is true that tires are designed to wear out over time, they are also designed to wear evenly and in sync. There are some variables that can cause them to wear at an accelerated rate or unevenly and one of those is improper alignment.
The best way to counteract this uneven or accelerated wear and tear is to heave your wheels aligned on a regular basis, but not all mechanics are able to properly perform this task. For proper wheel alignment, you need an expert mechanic who is equipped with all the latest tools and technology for the task.
Mueller’s Auto has all the tools and expertise necessary to get your wheel’s into that perfect configuration. We will make sure that when your vehicle leaves our shop, everything from the steering wheel to the angle of your tires is perfectly calibrated.
When to Schedule an Alignment
The general recommendation of alignments is around every 12,000 miles. As with all recommendations, this could vary based on your vehicle and driving habits. There are some times between those services when you should bring your vehicle to Mueller’s Auto for an alignment. These signs include:
- Your vehicle pulling to the left or right when you are driving straight
- A feeling of looseness or less control when you are steering
- Excessive or uneven tire wear
- A steering wheel that is off-center or vibrating
