In a wheel alignment service, your vehicle’s wheels are adjusted so each hits the road properly and evenly. There are several different points of adjustment, and each examines how your wheel sits in relation to either the other wheels or various points on the car. The angle of the tires is also reviewed. Camber, caster and toe adjustments are the technical terms. Camber is the tilt of the wheel, either inward or outward. Caster looks at the forward and back angles while the toe is the tilt of a wheel if you are looking down at it from above the car.
In a wheel alignment inspection, your wheels are hooked up to a state-of-the-art computer system programmed with Honda specifications. It takes precise measurements of wheel positions and then makes minute adjustments to each wheel to return them to factory specifications. This is extremely important as improper wheel alignment leads to uneven tire wear and a host of other vehicle problems over time.
In a two-wheel alignment, only the front two tires of the vehicle are reviewed and aligned. Two-wheel alignments are generally limited to larger vehicles, such as trucks and SUVs, with a more heavy-duty frame that helps absorb impacts to the back of a vehicle. This prevents many alignment issues impacting the rear wheels.
Most vehicles require four-wheel alignment on an annual basis to stay in top condition. In this process, all four wheels are assessed and corrected. While an alignment is recommended annually, it is possible to need one more frequently if your car absorbs a large impact or drives on rough roads regularly.
