Satnam Wheel Alignment and Balancing Service

Car alignments refer to the position of the vehicle’s wheels relative to your car. Proper wheel alignments ensure that tires are parallel to each other, pointing straight ahead and level with the ground. Without the correct alignment, your tires will resist steering commands and make it difficult to handle your vehicle.

 

Wheel Alignment and Wheel Balancing are two totally different things, but many people often get them confused. In a nutshell, wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. The purpose of these adjustments is maximum tire life and a vehicle that tracks straight and true when driving along a straight and level road. Wheel Balancing, on the other hand allows the tires and wheels to spin without causing any vibrations. This is accomplished by checking for any heavy spots on the wheel-tire combination and compensating for it by placing a measured lead weight on the opposite site of the wheel from where the heavy spot is.

 

The symptoms of a car that is out of alignment are:

 

  • Uneven or rapid tire wear
  • Pulling or drifting away from a straight line
  • Wandering on a straight level road
  • Spokes of the steering wheel off to one side while driving on a straight and level road.


The symptoms of a wheel that is out of balance are:

 

  • Vibration in the steering wheel at certain highway speeds.
  • Vibration in the seat or floorboard at certain highway speeds.
  • Scalloped or cupped wear pattern on the tires

 

Computerized vs Premium Alignment:

We offer two types of alignment service: computerized and premium. Most vehicles need our computerized alignment service, which includes:

 

  • Inspecting steering and suspension systems
  • Checking tire wear condition
  • Inspecting and adjusting tire pressures
  • Comparison of current alignment to vehicle manufacturer guidelines
  • Determining if any additional parts are necessary for proper alignment
  • Computerized adjustment of wheel camber, caster and toe angles


A premium alignment is required for all vehicles. This is because cars have a more complex steering and suspension setup and require electronic resets that aren’t on the average vehicle.
