What is a Four-Wheel Alignment

During a Volkswagen four-wheel alignment, Bert Smith Volkswagen technicians will use state-of-the-art technology to adjust the camber, caster, and toe angles. If necessary, your technician will adjust the angles to match the specifications recommended by your vehicle manufacturer, which helps to provide you with a smoother ride and help maintain even tire wear and help with efficient fuel economy. A four-wheel alignment in St. Petersburg includes an inspection and adjustment of both the front end and the rear end.

Why is Adjustment Necessary for the Caster, Camber, and Toe Angles?

All four wheels have a camber, caster, and toe angle, and when they are properly aligned, your vehicle will drive straighter and smoother. However, when the caster, camber, and toe angles are out of alignment, problems with the wheel alignment can happen. When the wheel alignment is misaligned, it can cause your vehicle to pull to the right or left, or the tires can wear unevenly. The camber, caster, and toe angles help keep your tires, steering, and overall driving of your vehicle even straighter.

The Basics of Wheel Alignment Service

Your vehicle's wheel alignment can be thrown off by hitting potholes, hitting a curb, bumping into concrete parking stalls, and general wear and tear, which means the rubber components begin to crack and the socket joints loosen with age. When the alignment is off, the tires will not point in the same direction, which ultimately affects the suspension, the steering, the durability of the tires, and your overall safety. The alignment can have a significant effect on the tires, causing them to wear unevenly and short the lifespan of the tires. Suppose you are noticing a pulling from the steering wheel, reduced fuel efficiency, or uneven wearing of the tires. In that case, it’s important to have a 4-wheel inspection and alignment at soon as possible.

Volkswagen Recommended Wheel Alignment Routine

We recommend that you have the wheel alignment inspected about every 6-months or 6,000 miles and adjusted at least once per year. The easiest way to stay on track with having routine 4-wheel alignment inspections is to have the alignment checked each time you get the oil changed. Keep in mind that a lot can happen in between checks, so even if it’s not the time for your Volkswagen four-wheel alignment check, you should take the vehicle in for a check-up if you recently hit severe potholes or are noticing a change in the way the vehicle is driving. The longer you put off having an alignment, the greater the risk is of other damages occurring.
