Wheel Alignment and Tire Services for Volkswagen Vehicles

Whether you own a Volkswagen or not, it is important to keep your vehicle’s tires properly aligned and balanced. 

A Wheel Alignment is one of the most important things to keep in check on any automobile. If your alignment is off, it can cause improper wear on the tires, affect your steering, reduce your MPG, and force the engine to work harder than necessary. These negative effects can take a toll on your vehicle and cause you to have to pay more in repairs the longer it remains untreated.

How do I know if I need an alignment?

Your local technician or mechanic can tell you if your alignment is off-kilter. Or if need be, you can check with a few basic methods. If the alignment isn’t correct, your steering wheel may be at an improper angle while driving on a straight road. Another way of checking your alignment is to see if the vehicle veers to the left or the right when it should be going straight. These are clear signs that the vehicle’s alignment is off and should be readjusted.

Tire balances should be preformed each time the tire is removed from the rim. This includes post-tire repair, the purchase of new tires, or after resealing the tire or stem. Unbalanced tires can cause dangerous driving conditions, reduce MPG, and wear down tires.

How do I know if my tires are unbalanced?

If during driving on the highway you feel a ‘wobble’ or ‘shaking’ during braking, there is a good chance there is a wheel balance issue. Another means of checking for an unbalanced wheel is to look for flat spots on the tire, or missing weights from the side of the rim.
