Tire For 4 Wheel Alignment - Mobile, AL


One of Palmer’s Toyota’s June Service Specials is $10 off 4-Wheel Alignment. You may have also heard this called “front-end alignment,” and you might be wondering, what’s the difference?  Put simply, four-wheel alignment deals with all four wheels and is recommended for four-wheel drive vehicles. Front end alignment deals with the front two wheels and is recommended for front-wheel drive vehicles. Learn more about why every vehicle needs a wheel alignment from time to time.


Why Is Wheel Alignment Important?

If you notice your car pulling to the left or the right, it could be because your wheels are out of alignment. This is likely due to driving on poorly maintained roads, or hitting potholes or curbs. Poorly aligned wheels can lead to uneven wear and tear on your tires, meaning you’ll need to replace them sooner. There are no warning lights or indicators for vehicle alignment issues, so the best way to prevent wear and tear on your tires is a regular alignment checkup.


What Are The Benefits Of Wheel Alignment?

If you get your wheels aligned regularly, you may notice the following benefits:

  • Longer lasting tires
  • A smoother drive in your vehicle
  • Ability to cruise without constantly correcting course
  • Better vehicle handling
  • Savings at the gas pump
