The biggest issue for Troy area drivers is always 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 vehicle is out of alignment, you should have it taken care of right away at Gary Knurek GoodYear in Troy.
When undergoing an alignment service at Gary Knurek GoodYear, your vehicle is put on an alignment rack where the tires, steering and suspension parts are checked for damage. Then the alignment is charted and checked against the factory settings.
Precision adjustments are made to bring the wheels back into alignment. This gets all four wheels going in exactly the same direction.
Troy drivers should be aware of the signs of alignment problems. These include the car pulling to one side. Also, the 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 Troy service center look it over. If you've been in an auto accident in Michigan, you should get your alignment checked.
Obviously, a big jolt can seriously knock things out of alignment, but Troy area drivers also need to understand that a series of smaller ones can add up.
That's why we recommend periodic alignment checks. If your vehicle owner's manual doesn't specify the interval, once a year might be appropriate. Or check with a service advisor at Gary Knurek GoodYear in Troy.
One thing's for sure: the cost of the alignment at Gary Knurek GoodYear is cheaper for Troy drivers than having to buy a couple of new tires because of neglect.
