Understanding the Ideal Gas Theory: How It Affects Your Tire Pressure in Cold Weather
You may be wondering how this chemistry lesson relates to our work on cars. The ideal gas theory...
Have you ever noticed your car pulls to one side or the other as you drive? Or perhaps your steering wheel is turned slightly when you are driving straight. Both of these scenarios could be a sign that you need a wheel alignment. At DeBoer’s Auto, we provide this service to our customers so you can be sure of the safety of your vehicle and your ability to improve your fuel economy.
One of the most common causes of misaligned tires on a vehicle is hitting a curb or driving through a pothole. However, it can also occur as a result of a car accident. While you should always bring your car to us after a major accident for an evaluation, we recommend you learn to watch for the signs of misaligned tires so you can get the problem resolved before it becomes more serious.
Many people are concerned about how much a tire alignment costs and think they can do without it, at least for a little while. However, proper tire pressure and fuel economy go hand in hand. So do tires and fuel economy. If your tires aren’t properly aligned, your tires may wear unevenly and can lose pressure. When this happens, your fuel economy will decrease, costing you more money in the long run.
In addition to saving money on your fuel costs, you will also save money on car repairs. Improper wheel alignment can cause excessive wear on other components relating to your steering and tires. This leads to even more repair costs.
When you bring your vehicle to us for a tire alignment, we will hook it up to our machine to evaluate the status of your tires. We will also check for wear and tear, proper tire pressure and the status of your suspension. Our laser sensors will determine if any adjustments need to be made for a precise alignment that increases the life of your tires, improves your fuel economy and protects your suspension and other components. All of our alignments come with a warranty so you can be sure the work is completed with precision.
To help our customers better manage the cost of getting a tire alignment, we strive to keep our rates competitive. We also offer wheel alignment coupons that can help you save even more money on this necessary service. Don’t let the cost keep you from an alignment inspection, followed by a two or four-wheel alignment, based on the results of your inspection.
