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.
SAFETY SYSTEM ALIGNMENT SERVICE
Many modern vehicles are equipped with Safety Systems such as Steering Angle Sensor (SAS) and/or Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). Sensors, cameras, lasers and radars that help your vehicle detect other vehicles, pedestrians and markings on the road all rely on proper alignment to function accurately. If your car manufacturer requires the recalibrations of features associated with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems as part of the alignment service, a Safety Systems Alignment will be required to recalibrate cameras, sensors and radars along with a test drive to ensure these systems are working properly.

*Most of our locations are equipped with the latest technology to perform Safety System Alignments but capability varies per location.
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.
