An alignment check is a great way to ensure your car or truck is aligned properly. An alignment checks for your car or truck takes just a few minutes and ensures your vehicle’s tires are wearing evening.
Wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the car maker’s specification. Kwik Kar Lube and Auto Repair on Marsh at Beltline uses the most technologically advanced alignment system to quickly check your car’s alignment.
The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tire wear, and to ensure that vehicle travels straight and true – without “pulling” to one side. Alignment angles can also be altered beyond the maker’s specifications to obtain a specific handling characteristic.
In the same fashion that you will wear out your shoes if you walk only on the inside or outside edge, so your tires may become worn if not aligned properly. Braking distance, ride quality, and even fuel economy are all affected by the correct inflation and rotation of tires.

The primary angles are the basic angle alignment of the wheels relative to each other and to the car body. These adjustments are the camber, caster and toe. On some cars, not all of these can be adjusted on every wheel.
