Wheel Alignment in White Bear Lake 

Alignment Service at White Bear Mitsubishi

Driving your Mitsubishi or any vehicle should always be a pleasant and almost effortless experience. Your hands should be able to rest gently on the steering wheel and never feel as if the wheel is fighting your instructions to turn or change direction. Even the slightest input from you should result in a smooth change of direction. However, if that is not the case, you need to make an appointment with the expert technicians at White Bear Mitsubishi for an alignment inspection and alignment service. Your safety, passengers, and vehicle are in jeopardy if there is a problem with your car's alignment.

The Immense Value of Professional Alignment Service

When you first purchased your Mitsubishi Outlander or Eclipse, you felt like it almost steered itself. You had to exert little force to turn the steering wheel or manage the direction as you drove down the road. However, after a few thousand miles on bumpy or rough roads, you could be finding that your car is beginning to meander in the lane, pull one direction or the other, and fight your input as you steer the car. All of these issues are indications that the wheels are out of alignment and need professional service. Without a realignment, the car will be less safe, more challenging to drive, and cause excess wear and tear on the tires.

What Is Alignment?

When you think about the surface of a tire, you imagine it with the tread surface evenly contacting the roadway. However, that is not always the ideal situation. In some cases, the wheel needs to be at an angle to offer superior handling and safety. The experts at White Bear Mitsubishi are very knowledgeable about the proper settings for each vehicle's three specific alignment planes. These adjustments are call:

  • Camber: The inward or outward angle of the tire when it is viewed from the front of the vehicle.
  • Toe: The inward or outward tilt of the tire when viewed from above.
  • Caster:  The steering axis when viewed from the side of the tire.

A professional alignment is completed using a very complex computerized program to precisely reset each of these adjustments to the optimum setting for your vehicle. The result of this professional alignment service is a car that drives like it did when it was brand new. It is once again effortless to steer and as safe as possible for you and your passengers.

Making A Wise Investment

Maintaining the alignment on your car is essential for safety as well as the longevity of your tires. A vehicle that is out of alignment will ruin tires very quickly. The tires will not roll evenly over the road and will wear in an uneven pattern. It will make the handling even worse. Unfortunately, if left out of alignment long enough, the only way to correct the vehicle's handling will be a professional alignment service and new tires.
