When your car travels straight down the road with little handling on your part, that’s due to your caster setting.
Wheel Alignment Services
AMERICA TRUSTS FIRESTONE COMPLETE AUTO CARE WITH 9,000 WHEEL ALIGNMENTS EACH DAY.
CAR WHEEL ALIGNMENT SERVICES
Without a proper wheel alignment, your fuel economy, tire life and the overall performance of your vehicle can suffer. Firestone Complete Auto Care recommends that a car's wheel alignment be checked every 6,000 miles / 6 months.
At Firestone, we perform more than 9,000 wheel alignments daily. We use computerized wheel alignment technology - which means our camber, caster, toe and thrust angle measurements are extremely precise and accurate.
Come into your local Firestone Complete Auto Care to have your wheel alignment checked. If our ASE-certified automotive technicians find that you are in need of further wheel alignment services, we offer two options.
STANDARD WHEEL ALIGNMENT SERVICE
During a standard wheel alignment service, a technician will inspect and/or adjust your vehicle's:
- Camber, caster and toe angles (when applicable)
- Front and rear steering
- Suspension system
- Tire wear and tire condition
- Tire air pressure
- Print out before and after wheel alignment specifications
The auto technician will then align and road test the vehicle. All standard wheel alignment services come with a 12-month / 12,000-mile limited warranty.
LIFETIME WHEEL ALIGNMENT SERVICE
With a lifetime wheel alignment service, drivers receive alignments free of charge every 6 months or 6,000 miles for as long as they own the vehicle. Talk to an automotive technician at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for complete terms and conditions.
WHEEL ALIGNMENT VS. WHEEL BALANCING
In addition to our wheel alignment services, we also offer wheel balancing. Unlike a wheel alignment, which corrects misaligned angles and keeps your car from veering to one side or another, wheel balancing corrects any uneven distribution of weight in the wheels (which can lead to vibration, excessive tire wear, damage to suspension and other problems). During a wheel balancing service, technicians mount steel weights to the inside or outside of wheels to balance the wheel assembly.
