Tracking True In SC; Wheel Alignment In StartexApr 2nd, 2013
Wheel alignment is often overlooked by busy Startex car owners until serious tire damage has been done. One wheel can be knocked out of alignment from the rest by hitting a curb or pothole on Startex roads.
The tires will wear out very quickly and will need to be replaced prematurely. It could also lead to suspension damage. Conversely, worn suspension or steering components can lead to alignment problems for Startex motorists.
But the big issue for Startex motorists is safety. When your vehicle wheels are out of alignment, the vehicle will pull to one side, which could lead to an accident. When you're out of alignment, you should have it taken care of right away at Advantage Auto.
Signs of alignment problems are: Your car pulls to one side. Also, your steering wheel may not be centered when you're going straight. If you see the edges of one or more tires rapidly wearing down, you should have your technician at Advantage Auto look it over.
If you've been in an accident in Startex that involved a wheel, you should get your alignment checked. A big jolt can seriously knock things out of alignment, but Startex drivers also need to understand that a series of smaller ones can add up. Worn steering or suspension components can also lead to alignment problems for Startex drivers. That's why your vehicle manufacturer recommends periodic alignment checks.
If your vehicle owner's manual doesn't specify, once a year might be appropriate. Or check with Tim & Shelly Reece or your service advisor at Advantage Auto in Greer. He'll also be able to tell you if your vehicle requires a four wheel alignment or if just the front wheels can be aligned.
One thing's for sure: the cost of the alignment at Advantage Auto is cheaper than having to buy a couple of new tires because of neglect.
