Volkswagen Alignment Services Available in St. Petersburg, FL

There are many ways to keep your tires in great shape using the certified services available at Bert Smith Volkswagen. While most people think that tire rotations and tire balancing are the most important services - and they are important - improper wheel alignment can make those services almost irrelevant. Your Volkswagen comes directly from the factory with wheel alignment measurements that ensure your tires are parallel to the road, creating a nice, even tread wear over time. Many things can cause your wheels to slowly or suddenly go out of alignment throughout your travels and daily driving, and your tires will begin to wear rapidly and unevenly. This could leave you needing to purchase new tires much sooner than you were expecting. Don't let this happen to you - be aware of the signs of improperly aligned wheels, and when you see them, schedule a wheel alignment service online at Bert Smith Volkswagen in St. Petersburg, FL.

Wheel Alignment Services

  • Two-Wheel Alignment - Also known as a front-end alignment, two-wheel alignment is generally performed on vehicles with a solid rear axle; it involves inspecting and adjusting the camber, toe, and caster angles on the front wheels.
  • Four-Wheel Alignment - Vehicles with independent or semi-independent rear suspensions will need to have the camber, toe, and caster angles inspected and adjusted on all four wheels; this is also called an all-wheel alignment.

Why Do Wheels Become Unaligned?

A few different things can cause wheel alignment troubles. Most commonly, people bring their Volkswagen vehicles in for alignment services at Bert Smith Volkswagen because they've been in an accident or have had other sudden impacts (potholes, etc.) that have immediately jarred their suspension system. These sudden impacts can move or damage parts in your Volkswagen's suspension, which subsequently results in your tires not turning as they should. It doesn't have to be all that serious, though; repeated daily driving on bumpy, uneven, or poorly-maintained roads can result in alignment problems that slowly build up over time. While the causes vary from customer to customer, the solution is always the same: scheduling Volkswagen-certified wheel alignment services online in our St. Petersburg, FL service department.
