You’re driving back home to Calgary, AB from a long trip and suddenly a pothole appears out…Alignment, Two Wheel

The Car Salon, Tirecraft division is the leading two-wheel alignment shop in Calgary, AB, . No matter what kind of driver you are in Calgary, AB, you expect the optimum tire life out of your vehicle’s front and rear-wheel tires. Sometimes the front wheels can get knocked out of alignment and a visit to a mechanic becomes a priority in order to preserve the even thread on your tires. During a two-wheel alignment, our mechanics will focus on checking the rear toe and thrust angle. Then, the necessary adjustments are made on the front wheels. A two-wheel alignment will save you money in the short-term, but the long-term tread life on your rear wheels could be compromised.

Wheel alignment typically concerns an adjustment of the angle in your vehicle’s front and rear-wheels so that all wheels remain perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Necessary wheel alignment adjustments will help improve tire life. Our wheel alignment service will begin and end with a test drive. Our mechanics will check for tire wear patterns before performing an alignment. During an auto wheel alignment service, our mechanics will check the three basic angles of alignment: camber, caster, and toe. Camber is the angle of the wheel when viewed from the front of your vehicle. Usually, this view offers a view on whether or not the wear in the tire’s thread is uneven from either side of the tire. If the tire’s thread is uneven, this may cause a pulling problem in the ride of your vehicle. Caster is the angle of your wheel’s pivot, which is attached to the suspension. This might become out of alignment, causing problems in straight-line tracking. Toe in is the difference in distance between the front of a single tire and the back of that tire. Each tire—front or wheel rear—should always be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to the tire beside it. While these are simply the angles that can begin to cause you trouble when out of alignment, there are other circumstances to wheel alignment that could affect the drivability of your car or truck.
