THAT'S GREAT! WHAT'S AN ALIGNMENT?
What if you walked at a left angle all of the time? You would never get where you needed to be, that's what. Also, people would probably stare. At Tire Discounters, we hold alignment in high regard. It is crucial to the life of your tires and gives you more control over your vehicle. In fact, we hold alignment in such high regard that it is FREE with a 4-tire purchase!
During your vehicle's life, potholes are hit, sharp turns are taken and brakes are slammed - all of which cause your components to wear down and your wheels to shift which can pull your car in one direction. Do not worry, this is natural wear and tear - but it can accelerate tire damage. When we align your tires, we are returning the angles of your vehicle's wheels to the manufacturer's specifications.
WHY AN ALIGNMENT?
A proper wheel alignment does four very important things:
- Reduces tire wear and provides maximum tire life
- Enhances fuel economy
- Improves handling
- Increases overall driving safety
Don't get bent out of shape, we offer Alignment Coverage for the life of your tires! You can choose between a 3-year or 5-year plan. This will cover an alignment whenever you need one for the duration of your policy. Savings over the duration of the plan are huge!
What if you have just purchased an alignment or received a free alignment with a 4-tire purchase? No problem!
If you upgrade to the Alignment Coverage Plan within 30 days, you will receive full credit for one paid alignment.
DID YOU KNOW?
Your suspension requires regular maintenance. All vehicles were designed with multiple alignment/adjustment points, usually 6. Car manufacturers build their suspensions with the expectation that they are inspected and adjusted frequently to maintain stability and minimize tire wear.
HOW IMPORTANT IS ALIGNMENT?
Research indicates that the average car is driven about 12,000 miles per year. A car with toe adjustment that is just 0.34 degrees (just 0.17 inches) out of specification has dragged its tires sideways for more than 68 miles by the end of the year!
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY CAR ALIGNED?
Follow the manufacturer's recommendations noted in your owner's manual. But, as a general rule, have your vehicle's alignment checked every 6,000 miles or at least twice a year.
