The Importance of a Wheel Alignment and Balancing

Wheel Alignment and Balancing

Maintaining your vehicle involves more than just regular oil changes and tire rotations. Two critical services that often go overlooked are wheel alignment and balancing. Norlang Auto is here to help with that!

Here are 4 reasons why such maintenance is a crucial service…

1.     Improved Safety & Handling

Proper alignment ensures that your vehicle drives straight without pulling to one side or the other, ensuring a smooth and safe ride.

2.     Extended Tire Life

Regular alignment checks can also help ensure even tire wear, saving you money on premature tire replacements.

3.     Optimal Fuel Consumption

When your wheels are properly aligned, there is less rolling resistance, leading to optimal fuel consumption.

4. Reduced Wear and Tear

Misalignment can put additional stress on your vehicle’s suspension and steering systems. This can lead to premature wear and potential costly repairs.

Signs You Need a Wheel Alignment:

  • Your vehicle pulls to one side.
  • Uneven tire wear.
  • The steering wheel is off-centre when driving straight.
  • Squealing tires.

Signs You Need Wheel Balancing:
