Wheel alignments are a frequently forgotten service, partially because it’s hard to visualize why they’re needed and because they’re not as frequently necessary as other services, like an oil change. However, misaligned wheels can cause serious problems with your vehicle, and at Sierra Toyota, we want to help make sure you never have any of those problems. We’re here to take care of all your Toyota’s wheel alignment needs, as well as any other service or repair needs it might have.
There are a couple of different ways our service center can help with your wheels’ alignment, and it mostly depends on what service you need and what kind of car you drive. Wheel alignment is the process of making sure the three main angles of your wheel, known as toe, castor, and camber, are within normal ranges that Toyota recommends. Here are the types of wheel alignment services our certified technicians perform:
If your Toyota is a 2WD vehicle, then the wheels that don’t turn (usually the back wheels) are kept in place by a fixed axle. This means that only the other two wheels, the turning wheels, require alignment service.
If you own a Toyota with 4WD, then all the wheels are susceptible to being bumped out of alignment over time. Our technicians will make sure all four wheels are pointing where they should.
Checking alignment is a key part of knowing when to get your alignment service, and we’re always happy to check your wheels’ angles for you.
Misaligned wheels cause irregular wear patterns on your tires, putting wear too heavily on one part of the tire or even putting wear on parts of the tire that aren’t intended to take wear. That’s why our certified technicians have trained, worked, and learned exactly what your Toyota needs to avoid wearing out your tires too fast because of poor alignment. They’ll make sure to get your tires in the correct position, so you have full control over both your budget and your car.
Wheel alignments can help save you from burning through tires too quickly, and our state-of-the-art facility is fully equipped to help you with your alignment needs. Whether you need the alignment checked or you’ve noticed your car pulling off to one side while driving straight, we’re ready and willing to help.
