Car cornering on highway

Want to get better mileage from your car? Check that your tires are properly inflated and that your wheels are properly aligned. Poor wheel alignment causes your tires to wear unevenly and can result in poor control of your car when you’re driving in Vancouver’s wet and icy conditions. At Minit-Tune Brake & Auto Centres across VancouverBC and Alberta, we use the most up-to-date equipment to correct your wheel alignment – saving you money on fuel and expensive tire replacements, as well as costly steering and suspension repairs.

Signs You Need Wheel Alignment

  • Check your tires. Does the wear on one tire show a different pattern than the tire on the opposite side? Wheel alignment should be done with tire rotation to extend the life of your tires and protect the tires’ warranty.
  • Does your vehicle shudder or vibrate? Poor wheel alignment may be causing the wheels to pull in different directions causing a rough ride.
  • Do you need to constantly correct the car’s tendency to drift to one side? If your car is pulling to one side, and you have to wrestle the steering wheel to correct it, or if your steering wheel has to be held to one side to drive straight, the wheels are in need of alignment.

Poor wheel alignment affects your fuel efficiency and can cause undue wear on other components of your steering and suspension system. Have your wheels aligned at your neighbourhood Minit-Tune & Brake Auto Centres facility – and enjoy the savings at the gas pump!
