Benefits of Wheel Alignment

March 22, 2016

Proper wheel alignment is extremely important to protect tire investment and tire life, maximize fuel economy, and stop safely in all weather conditions.

According to Hunter Engineer, vehicles with wheel alignment conditions can suffer a decrease in fuel efficiency by up to 7%. As vehicle manufacturers equip more vehicles with onboard driver-assist systems, such as electronic stability control, parking assist, traction control. and more, an increasing number of OEM's now require a steering system reset during alignment service. It is important to have an alignment system that can reset all alignment-related sensors during alignment service.
