Acura Wheel Alignment Service near Roslyn, NY

October 10th, 2019 by

Wheel alignments are one of the simplest ways to get the maximum performance out of your tires and also make them last longer. As you likely know, tire health is one of the most important aspects of vehicle maintenance, making tire alignment especially vital. Here at Acura of Huntington, our highly trained team of mechanics in our Acura service center has plenty of experience with wheel alignments. Why should you get a wheel alignment?

When our mechanics align your wheels, it refers to an adjustment of the vehicle’s suspension, which is the system that connects a vehicle to its wheels. The tires themselves do not get adjusted. In order to conduct a proper alignment, the angles of the wheels that house the tires need to be changed. This affects how they make contact with the road.

How do you know if you need a wheel alignment for your new Acura car? If you’ve noticed uneven tread wear, your vehicle pulling to the left or right, your steering wheel being off-center when driving straight, or steering wheel vibration, it’s likely time for an alignment. When a technician at our NY Acura dealership checks your alignment, he or she is checking three things: camber, toe, and caster. Put simply, these three things have to do with the angle of the tire when viewed from the front of the vehicle, from above, and from the side.

Improper wheel or tire alignment can cause your tires to wear unevenly and prematurely, so make sure to get them checked at least once per year. Here at our Acura service center, our technicians are standing by, and we invite you to schedule an appointment.
