Wheel Alignment in Londonderry, New Hampshire
About Your Vehicle’s Wheel Alignment
What Is It?
You’ve probably heard the term “wheel alignment” as applied to a vehicle. When technical jargon specific to the automotive industry is used, you may wonder exactly what it means. You should never be afraid to ask if you need more information or a better explanation. The ASE-certified technicians at Tires Too in Londonderry, New Hampshire, are glad to answer questions about your automobile. Wheel alignment describes the relationship between your car’s wheels and how well the frame, therefore, can connect to the road. It’s expressed and adjusted by way of the major suspension angles–camber, caster, toe, and thrust. The kind of adjustment your vehicle needs depends on what you drive. Often, you’ll need only a front wheel alignment. As the name suggests, work is done in the front axle. However, it is possible to need a thrust alignment that involves adjustment of both the front end and the thrust angle such that all the wheels are brought back into squares with one another. This typically works best if your car has a solid rear axle. If you drive an all-wheel drive or four-wheel drive automobile or if your front-wheel-drive car features an independent adjustable rear suspension, you’ll likely need a four-wheel alignment.

How Will You Know if Your Auto Needs It?
Certain situations should prompt you to see us for wheel alignment. For instance, if you’ve been involved in a collision, you’re usually better off getting a wheel alignment sooner rather than later. Also, if you observe certain warning signs, bring those to our attention so that we can check and adjust your vehicle. Noticing that your steering wheel never seems to return to the center is one indicator that should prompt a service visit. Another is your car pulling to one side when you’re trying to drive straight ahead. You’ll sometimes notice a vibration in your steering wheel, too, if the alignment is off. (Note: Vibration during braking often signals brake trouble, but a constant vibration is more likely to be related to suspension or perhaps poorly balanced tires.) Finally, notice your tread wear pattern. Tires that are wearing much more quickly in some spots than in others are usually a tell-tale sign that your car needs a wheel alignment.
