Wheel Alignments in Bath, ON

When considering the overall health of your vehicle, wheel and tire maintenance is vital to the longevity of your car. Misaligned wheels can negatively impact everything from steering to breaking. Our team of tire technicians at John’s Auto Service will help you avoid costly repairs with our performance-enhancing wheel alignment services.

Wheel Alignments

A wheel alignment is…

The process of adjusting each wheel’s location, position, and angle on your vehicle. Over time your tires tread pattern starts to wear, and due to factors like your driving habits, the type of weather elements, and the terrain you expose your tires to, they wear unevenly. This will eventually affect other areas of your car, like the steering and suspension. Before any of that happens, call John’s Auto Service to book a wheel alignment with one of our highly skilled technicians.

There are two different types of wheel alignment.

  • Front End Alignment

As the name implies, this is when an alignment is only executed on the front two wheels. A 2-wheel alignment may be enough if your car possesses a solid rear axle that doesn’t require many adjustments.

  • 4-Wheel Alignment

A 4-wheel alignment is when all four of your wheels receive an alignment.  This ensures they work in harmony!

You may need a wheel alignment if…

  • Your vehicle begins to veer sideways when you let go of the wheel.
  • You’ve recently had your tires changed.
  • Your car has been in an accident.
  • Steering or suspension components have been changed or altered.
  • You have driven a new car its first 3 000 km.
  • Your vehicle has had a recent trans-axial repair.

What to Expect with Wheel Alignment Service?

Once your vehicle has been put up on a lift for a wheel alignment, you can expect to see.

  • Wheels Rotated

Tire rotation isn’t always as simple as swapping the front and back tires. Many vehicles have unique specifications on how their tires need to be rotated. Our tire technicians will be able to.

  • Wheels Adjusted

In addition to moving the location of your tires, they also need to have their alignment adjusted per your car’s manufacturing guidelines and your driving style.

  • Camber, Caster, and Toe Adjustments

Cambers, casters, and toes are components of the tire that account for tilt and angle. During your wheel alignment service, these may also need to be adjusted.

  • Reset Steering Angle Sensor

Your service may also include resetting your steering angle sensors. These sensors measure the position of your steering wheel and rate of turn and affect your steering pressure, breaking, and acceleration.

Benefits of a Wheel Alignment

  • Smoother Driving
  • Better Steering
  • Good for Overall Car Health
  • Increased Tire Lifespan
