Car Care Tips

Tracking True in Wisconsin: Wheel Alignment in Appleton

The biggest issue for Appleton 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 Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Appleton in Appleton.

When undergoing an alignment service at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Appleton, 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.

Appleton 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 Appleton service center look it over. If you've been in an auto accident in Wisconsin, you should get your alignment checked.

Obviously, a big jolt can seriously knock things out of alignment, but Appleton 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 Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Appleton in Appleton.

One thing's for sure: the cost of the alignment at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Appleton is cheaper for Appleton drivers than having to buy a couple of new tires because of neglect.
