Auto Specialists Auto Repair Alignment and Tire Adjustments
Ensure your tires are in optimal condition with precise alignment services at Auto Specialists Auto Repair. Properly aligned tires not only extend their lifespan but also enhance your vehicle's handling by preventing it from "pulling" to one side. Our certified tire specialists employ state-of-the-art equipment to meticulously inspect your tires for signs of uneven wear, cracking, or slow leaks.
Wheel alignment, a fundamental aspect of regular car maintenance, entails the precise adjustment of wheel angles to align with the manufacturer's specifications. This process ensures that your suspension and steering systems operate at optimal angles, ultimately reducing tire wear. Alignment is a complex task and our skilled experts who excel in this field can guarantee precision and quality.
How long does a full alignment take?Wheel alignments typically take one hour for both two-wheel and four-wheel drive vehicles. However, excessive wear and tear on suspension components like bushings, track rods, or the system itself can require replacements, extending the service time.
What happens if you wait too long for an alignment?Tire alignment is crucial for maintaining optimal tire performance and lifespan. Even slight misalignments, undetectable to the naked eye but measurable in tenths of degrees or hundredths of inches, can lead to premature and uneven wear. As time passes, this wear becomes more pronounced, impacting both safety and fuel efficiency. To avoid these issues, regular alignment checks every 6,000 miles are recommended.
What is checked during an alignment?Three crucial aspects are assessed during a tire alignment inspection: camber, toe, and caster. Camber refers to the angle formed by the vertical axis of the tire and a line perpendicular to the road surface, as viewed from the front. When the top of the tire tilts inwards, creating an "X" shape with the wheels, it's considered negative camber. This can increase wear on the tire's inner edge through increased friction.
Do I need an alignment after replacing tires?The answer is yes! A proper wheel alignment ensures precise angles between wheels and the road, maximizing tire life, enhancing handling, and distributing wear evenly across the tread. This translates to better fuel efficiency, safer driving, and a more enjoyable ride.

Highly Recommend. Flawless experience with Impeccable, Highly Trained, Professional, Knowledgeable staff. I have extensive automotive repair experience, but even I hit a dead-end every now and then. That's when Lee and Brandon and their team step in. They recently repaired my 2009 Mercedes Benz GL450 (130,000 miles) with complicated, extensive mechanical and electronic issues. The local dealership was completely lost. Auto Specialists diagnosed, and repaired the issue with ease, a fair price, and an efficient use of time.

Excellent service. Took car right away and I waited for it. It did not take them anytime to put the new tires on my car. Everyone was very friendly. Next time I need more tires for my car, I know where to go. Thanks for all the good service I received for all the staff.
