Left of Center- Wheel Alignment Problems

Tire Alignment Problems Manifest Themselves In Different WaysInevitable vehicle problems, such as wheel alignment problems, are to be expected, but can be avoided with proper vehicle maintenance. Common signs of wheel alignment problems can be caused by environmental conditions or even owner neglect.

Signs of Alignment Problems

Wheel alignment problems can be visually spotted, even by an untrained eye. These visual signs include:

  • Uneven Tire Tread Wear
  • Tires Tilted In or Leaning Outward (Toe-in or Toe-out)
  • Off Centered Steering Wheel

Tire alignment problems can cause the vehicle to pull to either side of the road on a straight-away.

Common Causes of Alignment Problems

Improper wheel alignments can cause a rapid deterioration of your vehicle’s most valuable assets, your tires. Other common types of alignment problems stem from:

  • Poor Road Conditions (Pot Holes)
  • Front End or Rear End Wrecks

Wheel alignment problems can be avoided with regular vehicle maintenance. Routine auto maintenance at your local A&J Automotive is a great way to catch any tire alignment problems in their early stages.

The Importance of Immediate Tire Alignments

Experts agree that wheel alignments should be performed within the first 3,000 miles of a new tire installation, and every 6000 miles afterwards. This ensures your vehicle undergoes:

  • Maximum Tire Wear
  • Optimum Tire Performance and Balance

Ignoring alignment problems will eventually lead to out-of-balance problems and possible costly undercarriage damage to your vehicle. With two convenient Raleigh NC location the professional ASE Certified technicians at A&J Automotive make it easy to keep your car well maintained at all times. If you suspect your vehicle is having alignment issues don’t delay! Call or contact us to schedule your wheel alignment service today!

I took my elderly Corolla to A&J Automotive for a thorough check-up, where an expert mechanic/diagnostician confirmed arthritis (creaky joints); heart trouble (old engine); problems with metabolism (no AC), and a few other symptoms of an intensely driven life. A&J provided palliative care for me, sending me off for the d...

I've been allowing A&J to do work on my car for sometime now, But I'm now finding that some of the techs are not as knowledgeable as others, I spent $900.00 on some transmission work and asked them to change a headlight and I was told it wasn't a bad bulb but it maybe a relay switch! After an hour of waiting I was told they ...

They recommended I have my tires rotated and re-aligned. I had recently had them re-aligned by another company and the previous company had not done a great job. A & J did a wonderful job fixing the problem. I drove my car out of the A & J lot and felt like I was driving a new car. On top of that, I feel A & J is cou...

i prefer to find value in the things i buy and on the services i pay for; one can always find things cheap but it's value is lacking. A and J has consistently provided my family and our vehicles with honest and value priced service. such is the case, again , on our most recent visits with both of our cars. i particularly like th...

Same day diagnosis and turnaround. I had a simple AC recharge so nothing complicated and they did not try to force additional services like other shops. While I am not looking forward to more repairs I am glad to have found a place that seems to put the customer first. They earned a repeat customer today.

Trying to isolate the cause of the "Service Engine Soon" warning light took quite a long time, but the technician finally traced it and replace the part. The technicians always look for potential risks for failure on the vehicle. He had seen an issue with another part and replaced them as well, but the cost was minimal, consider...
