Spanaway Collision’s state-of-the-art facility in Spanaway, Washington is equipped with a laser-measuring alignment rack, which enables our technicians to provide 100% accurate wheel alignment service for all makes and models. Why is precision so important? Because any slight skew or wobble will ruin your vehicle’s performance. Instead of effective and efficient operation, the engine will strain itself to power the car down the road on unevenly aligned wheels. Driving with poor wheel alignment is like trying to walk around with your toes pointed in. It’s simply not the best or healthiest way to get around. You can imagine that your body wouldn’t feel good after walking like that all day. Your feet and legs would hurt! In the same way, other parts of your car can suffer damage from driving around with improperly aligned wheels. That’s why getting precise results is so important!
Once our ASE Certified technicians have measured the angles at which your vehicle’s wheels meet the ground, they can make adjustments to perfect its stance. Each vehicle model comes with ideal settings for stance and when the wheels stray from that position, wheel alignment service tweaks them back into their proper place. Over the course of your vehicle’s lifespan, it’s not unusual for minor impacts with potholes or curbs to change the way the wheels meet the road. Ideally, the tread area of the tire should make full contact with the road. In other words, the wheels shouldn’t be tilted, leaning, crooked, or turned when the steering wheel is straight. How can you tell if that’s not the case? In a flat parking area with the steering wheel straight and the car in park, you can examine the wheels to see if anything looks off. You may also notice the car pulling or tugging in one direction while driving. If your steering wheel appears crooked when your vehicle is traveling straight, you may have an alignment issue.
