How Important is a Wheel Alignment?
At our Yonkers location we can’t stress enough the importance of Wheel Alignments and Tire Balancing. Wheel alignments not only deal with tires it also deals with your steering and suspension. When you align your wheels or balance your tires you will reduce wear and tear on your tires. Doing so you will save money on tires by extending the life your current set. Another major benefit of a wheel alignment is it helps you achieve better gas mileage. When your tires are not aligned your car will work harder due to the car being dragged sideways. The effect this has on your car is that you will eventually drive extra unnecessary miles. Having a wheel alignment or having your tires balanced will fix this situation by ensuring you have proper steering and handling.
