Normal wear from road conditions can alter the alignment settings from vehicle manufacturers' specifications. Whenever you install new tires, or whenever your alignment is off (most noticeable when your vehicle starts pulling to one side), a Wheel Alignment Service will get your car back to its original manufacturer specifications.
When your wheels are aligned, the wheel angles are corrected to manufacturer guidelines.
The wheels should be perpendicular to the ground and
parallel to each other, as in the diagram.
A vehicle out of alignment wears out its tires faster and burns more fuel per mile. While the most obvious symptom of misaligned wheels is when your vehicle starts pulling to one side, your wheels may be out of alignment even before you notice any problems with handling.
In addition to comparing and correcting the alignment of your wheels against the original manufacturer's guidelines, your Goodyear Auto Service Center will also:
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend checking wheel alignment at least once a year. Consult your owner's manual for your vehicle's recommended service intervals.
You can have your vehicle's alignment checked for free at your Goodyear Auto Service Center. If you need an alignment, your Goodyear Auto Service Center Wheel Alignment Service is backed by a parts-and-labor limited warranty of 6 months or 6,000 miles, whichever comes first. (Note: steering or suspension parts installed after the alignment voids the warranty.) See your Goodyear Auto Service Center for complete details and a warranty brochure.
