Wheel Alignment


Wheel Alignment in Sandy, UT

Service to Keep You Tracking Straight and True

What Is Wheel Alignment Service?

Proper wheel alignment is when your wheels run parallel to one another and perpendicular to the ground, ensuring a smooth ride. Wheel alignment service is the adjustment of the wheels’ angles to manufacturer specifications if they have deviated. These angles include camber, which is the inward or outward tilt of the tires when viewed head-on, caster, which is the forward or backward tilt of the tires when viewed from the side, and toe, which is the direction in which the tires are pointed when viewed from above. When you bring your vehicle to McNeil’s Auto Care in Sandy, Utah, we will measure your wheels’ angles and determine where misalignment is present. If your vehicle is toe-out, for example, the wheel points away from the center of the vehicle, and negative camber is when the top of the tire tilts inward. Your vehicle can also be toe-in, positive camber, negative caster, or positive caster. Our state-of-the-art technology and technical expertise will make your vehicle track straight and true again.

What Are the Signs of Poor Wheel Alignment?

Wheel alignment influences your ride in multiple ways. Not only does it affect your handling and steering but also your fuel efficiency, tire wear, and overall safety. If one or more wheels become misaligned, it’s important to have it corrected sooner rather than later to prevent unsafe driving conditions and further damage. Signs of misalignment include your vehicle pulling or drifting to one side while driving, vibrations in your steering wheel, uneven tire wear, your steering wheel refusing to sit center while driving straight, and squealing tires. Misalignment can happen gradually or instantly; as soon as you notice one of these symptoms, it’s time to schedule an appointment. To stay extra vigilant, we recommend getting your wheel alignment checked annually. We also encourage our customers to have their alignment inspected after installing new tires, lifting or lowering their vehicle, or servicing their suspension.
