Automotive Tips from Aero Auto Repair: Alignment Inspection

Uneven tire wear, the car pulling to one side or a steering wheel that is off-center are signs for San Diego drivers that their wheels may be out of alignment.When doing an alignment inspection, the service advisor at Aero Auto Repair will inspect your tires for uneven wear as well as suspension and steering parts for signs of wear or damage. He?ll also compare your current alignment with the vehicle manufacturer?s settings.Your vehicle owner?s manual will have a recommendation for when to check alignment. Of course, this recommendation is based on normal driving.
