Understanding Wheel Alignments

If the car that you drive around Fayetteville, NY has started to shake when you hit higher speeds, it might be suffering from an alignment problem. Wheels can come out of alignment if you hit obstacles in the road, drive over deep potholes, or encounter anything else that provides a hard hit to one or more of your tires. Friendly Honda recommends getting regular alignment checks to make sure that your tires are in place so that you can expect maximum performance from your car or truck.

The alignment of a tire is measured by the camber, caster, and toe angles. Each of these measures how a tire is oriented compared to the axle of the vehicle and the other tires. When not within manufacturer specifications, tires can wear unevenly. Poor alignment can also put additional pressure on various bearings and cause them to wear out more quickly than normal.
