All Lined Up: Wheel Alignment Service at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Grandview

April 18, 2021

When all of your vehicle's wheels are lined up exactly with each other, your wheels are in alignment. Hitting a road hazard or even just the normal bumps and bounces of everyday driving in Columbus can cause your vehicle's wheels to be out of alignment.

Driving for an extended time around Columbus when your wheels are out of alignment results in uneven tire wear. This is dangerous … and expensive. Worst case scenario, you have a blowout on a crowded Ohio highway. It can also cause premature wear to your suspension system, which can be really expensive to repair. At the very least, you may have to replace your tires years too early.

The ideal alignment for your vehicle was designed by its engineers. Alignment service at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Grandview starts with an inspection of the steering and suspension – to see if anything's bent or broken. Then your friendly and knowledgeable Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Grandview technician will look at tire condition.

From there, the vehicle is put on an alignment rack and an initial alignment reading is taken. The wheels are then aligned to vehicle’s specifications.

Your vehicle owner's manual probably has a recommendation for how often your alignment should be checked – usually every couple of years. If you suspect an alignment problem, get it checked at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Grandview before you suffer expensive tire or suspension damage.
