If your vehicle is driving a little off or your tires are wearing unevenly, it might be out of alignment. Adjusting a vehicle’s steering and suspension components will ensure that new tires or retread tires are pointed in the right direction. Wheel alignment is also important for safety and to get maximum mileage from your tires. After all, you don’t want to shorten the life of your tires or affect the handling characteristics of your vehicle. That is why it is important to have the alignment of the wheels and the parallelism of the axles checked by STTC.
Optimum Tire Life & Performance
To ensure optimum tire life and performance, the front-end alignment on trucks equipped with Michelin truck tires or other popular brands should be in accordance with the requirements of the vehicle manufacturer. STTC recommends having your tires and wheels dynamically balanced to avoid steering difficulties and unnecessary wear. Along with fixing the alignmentof your vehicle, it is also important to check that your tires are properly inflated. Underinflated tires will result in more wear on the shoulders than in the center of the tread. On the other hand, overinflated tires will result in more wear in the center of the tread than on the shoulders. Whether you’re using retreads or new tires, STTC can help. Using only advanced Hunter Engineeringalignment equipment, we will adjust your vehicle’s alignment to the proper requirements. We will also check tire condition and air pressure, ensuring a smooth ride.
