Automotive Tips from Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission: Signs of An Alignment Problem

When properly aligned, all of your wheels are pointed in the same direction. Your vehicle will track true and handle the way it is designed. Elk Grove Village motorists often associate our wheels being “knocked” out of alignment with an event like an accident, hitting a pothole, curb or some other object. While these can certainly take your wheels out of alignment, the bumps and bounces of everyday Hanover Park driving take their toll on wheel alignment as well. In addition, your automobile can lose alignment over time with just normal driving. When your wheels are out of alignment, Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission in Hanover Park can return your wheels to the automobile manufacturer factory settings. Most owners’ manuals suggest an alignment check every year or two. Give us a call Kamphaus AutoCare and Emission 1005 Irving Park Rd Hanover Park, IL 60133

Hanover Park Alignment Service

Running into potholes, smacking a curb or other object are great ways to knock your car out of alignment.

Tire wear on misaligned wheels can also lead to blowouts, which are dangerous, can lead to serious accidents, and can seriously damage your pickup.
