Let Winkler Automotive help you out. We perform wheel alignments on a regular basis and are more than happy to do the same for you. It is important to have your wheel alignment checked every so often as there are several factors that could knock your wheels out of alignment. Potholes, dropping off a curb, or regular driving for an extended period of time can shift the alignment of your wheels.

The reason why you want your wheels to be aligned is so that your tires are making even contact with the road. When your wheels and subsequently your tires are misaligned, it can cause uneven wear on your tire tread, if this goes long enough without being checked it may significantly shorten the life of your tires.

Another threat to proper wheel alignment and the health of your tires is worn out suspension.
