Is It Time for a Wheel Alignment Service in Tampa, FL?
When your wheels are aligned correctly, your tires make contact with the road at the correct angle. That makes wheel alignments super important since your vehicle’s tires are the only things making contact with the road when you drive! How often should you get an alignment? Should you wait until you notice an alignment problem? Oftentimes, it’s recommended to get a wheel alignment check around every 6,000 miles or according to your suggested maintenance schedule. Your car, truck, or SUV might need an alignment service sooner if you notice uneven tread wear, feel your vehicle pulling to the left or right, or notice your steering wheel isn’t centered when your vehicle is driving straight.
What Happens During My Wheel Alignment in Tampa?
During a wheel alignment service in Tampa, we raise up your vehicle on an alignment rack, we check the current status of your vehicle’s alignment, and make adjustments to the toe, caster, and camber angles (if applicable) so that the wheels properly hit the road while you drive. You might have heard this service called tire alignment as well, but the only things being tweaked are the adjustable suspension and steering components, not the wheels or tires themselves. A technician will also inspect the vehicle's suspension and tire pressure as a wheel alignment precheck.
The cost of your Tampa wheel alignment service depends on the package you select as well as if your car has safety system alignment recalibration requirements. We offer three wheel alignment packages: Standard Wheel Alignment, 3-Year Wheel Alignment, and Lifetime Wheel Alignment. The Lifetime Wheel Alignment is one of our best alignment options since coverage lasts for as long as you own your vehicle, no matter how many miles you put on it!
Your nearest Tires Plus in Tampa, FL may also offer a Safety Systems Alignment, which is a special type of wheel alignment. A Safety Systems Alignment may be required for your vehicle if it has special features like Lane Departure Warning or a Rear Camera System. Call your local Tampa Tires Plus if you’re unsure what alignment service your vehicle needs. Additionally, Safety System Alignment technology can vary for each Tires Plus location.
It’s worth noting that tire balancing and alignment aren’t the same, though the two services are often performed during the same appointment. While a wheel alignment service focuses on correcting the angle of your tires, tire balancing is about adding small weights on each tire and wheel. Balancing the tires ensures that they spin straight without vibrating or wobbling, and it is a great way (along with an alignment) to help get the most life and ride comfort from your tires.
