Wheel Alignment Check and Service at Fisher Auto
Fisher Auto Provides a Free Wheel Alignment Check
Fisher Auto in Boulder, Colo., provides a free wheel alignment check on all makes and models. If your car is drifting to one side while you’re driving straight ahead or if your steering wheel is vibrating, it’s time to have your alignment checked. Our alignments start at $79.95.
Why is a Wheel Alignment Necessary?
Cars need their wheels aligned due to everyday driving, according to HowStuffWorks. The wheels shift and sit at incorrect angles because of driving on rough roads, as a result of a small accident, or from bumping into a curb. Other tell-tale signs that you need an alignment check is if you are driving straight, but your steering wheel is not centered or if there is wear on the outsides of the tires.
Poor Wheel Alignment Affects Tire Wear and Fuel Efficiency
If it is shown in the wheel alignment check that your vehicle needs an alignment, the service includes the correction of the angle the tire is positioned in. The caster, camber, and toe angles are measured and corrected using top-of-the-line equipment. When tires are positioned correctly against the pavement, fuel efficiency is improved and unnecessary tire wear is corrected.
How Much Does a Wheel Alignment Cost?
The cost of an alignment varies by make and model. The most common alignment is the 4-wheel alignment. This is for vehicles that have adjustment points on the front and rear suspension. Subarus get this type of alignment and the price starts at $99.95.
Front-wheel alignments are performed on small passenger cars that only have front suspension adjustments. Examples would be the Kia Soul and Kia Rio. This alignment starts at $79.95.
Pick-up trucks and SUVs with solid rear axles also get a front-wheel alignment, but their front suspension is much more complex than the suspension in a small passenger car. This alignment starts at $89.95.
If any of these vehicles need additional adjustments to become perfectly in specification, the cost of an alignment can be between $135 and $170. Alignments not only stabilize the vehicle’s steering, but the service also improves fuel efficiency and lessens tire wear in relation to a vehicle that is poorly aligned.
