Alignment for Better Control

Does your vehicle seem to have a mind of its own when you’re driving down a straight Boise street? Is it constantly trying to drift to the left or right? The car probably needs an alignment. An alignment will set your car’s wheels back to the factory specs.

Camber, caster and toe are the angles at which each pair of wheels is set. Camber tells you if the tops of the wheels slant toward each other or away. To understand caster, think of the way a bicycle’s front tire sets forward on a slanted fork, rather than the fork being vertical. Toe is a measure of whether the fronts of the tires point in or out.

Getting an alignment improves your car’s handling and allows the tires to wear evenly. You can bring your car to Lyle Pearson Volvo Cars Boise every two to three years or as needed for an alignment checkup.
