Alignment | Gauges

Why Are Alignment | Gauges Important?

You can have big brakes, a great suspension setup, and a powerful engine, but your vehicle’s tires are what contact the road and make the biggest difference in performance and drivability. Wheel alignment changes the angle of your wheels and tires, and these angles affect vehicle handling, tire wear, tracking, and even gas mileage.

Manufactures wheel alignment specifications are a compromise between handling, predictability, and gas mileage. So if you take your car to the track, you will likely want to change your alignment, dialing in more camber, and less toe, for example. Having your own wheel alignment tool or camber gauge makes checking your own alignment easy.

What happens when my wheels aren’t properly aligned?

  • Accelerated and abnormal tire wear
  • Undesired Handling (poor turn-in, understeer, oversteer, etc.)
  • Reduced MPG
  • The vehicle does not track straight

By owning your own wheel alignment gauge you will know if the vehicle actually needs adjusting, so no unnecessary trips to the alignment shop.

Anytime any work is performed on the vehicle’s suspension, such as replacing tie rods, struts, bushings, etc., the alignment will need to be checked and most likely adjusted.
