Wheel Alignments in Fergus, ON

Importance of Wheel Alignment Services

Wheel Alignments

Making sure your wheels are correctly aligned improves the performance and longevity of your tires. Unfortunately, wheels are frequently misaligned due to hitting potholes, bumps, curbs, driving on uneven surfaces, and general wear and tear. Therefore, keeping your wheels accurately aligned is critical to maintaining their quality and performance.

What is a  Wheel or Tire Alignment?

The angle of your wheels in relation to the body of your vehicle is referred to as wheel alignment. True Auto Care technicians can pinpoint how much adjustment is required and apply it using cutting-edge technology.

We recommend that you get your wheel alignment checked at least every 10,000 kms and any time you experience a change in the driving or handling of your vehicle.

Wheel alignments ensure that your vehicle’s tires move, rotate, or point straight ahead.  Having your tires appropriately aligned will increase tire life and make driving easier. However, large potholes or other objects, such as curbs, can cause tires to become out of alignment. When your tire is out of alignment, it can cause complex handling and excessive tire wear.

Camber, caster, and toe are three factors that influence your vehicle’s wheel alignment. Camber refers to the wheel’s angle seen from the front of the vehicle. The camber measurement on your tire should be 0°.

The Importance of Wheel Alignment

Ensuring appropriate wheel alignment is critical to avoiding potential wear on your tires, steering, suspension, and brakes. Accurate wheel alignment helps improve driving stability, tire life, and overall handling efficiency. For a hassle-free riding experience, proper wheel alignment is essential.

What are the Warning Signs that you Need a Wheel Alignment?

When there is any problem with your vehicle, it notifies you by way of signs or symptoms. For example, improper wheel balancing or alignment might create several consequences. Some are related to tire wear and tear, while others are associated with drifting and pulling.

The angle of your wheels can become skewed over time, causing various changes to your driving experience. Here are some of the warning signs that your vehicle needs wheel alignment:

  • Uneven tread wear
  • A steering wheel that is off-center when driving in a straight direction
  • Vehicle pulling off to left or right
  • Vibrating steering wheel
  • Loose steering wheel
  • Squealing tires

What happens if you don’t fix alignment?

Here are some dangers if you don’t fix the wheel alignment issue-

  • Eventual damage
  • Enhance additional cost
  • Heightened maintenance cost
  • Reduce the safety of the vehicle

Benefits of getting a proper wheel alignment

Once you get a wheel alignment done, you will notice some of the advantages, a few of them are:

Increase fuel efficiency

When your car’s wheels aren’t correctly aligned, they don’t work together as they should. As a result, your vehicle’s engine has to work much harder to propel you forward, reducing fuel economy.

Reduce costlier auto repairs

When you drive with a poor alignment, the parts in your car wear unevenly and prematurely. When you hit a pothole or a bump in the road, your steering and suspension systems suffer. When your tires aren’t evenly distributing the impact, certain areas of these systems take the brunt of the damage, causing them to fail sooner than they should.

Experience smoother driving

When your car’s wheel alignment is off, you will notice that it drifts slightly to the right or left, even when your steering wheel is aimed straight ahead. Constantly adjusting your steering to compensate for poor alignment is exhausting, inefficient, distracting, and potentially dangerous!

Enhance the lifespan of your tires

Last but not least, your tires. Your tires are an expensive and vital auto part that wears out much more quickly when you don’t get regular wheel alignments. When you align your tires and they work together in harmony, they will take you much further, and you won’t have to buy new tires sooner than you need to.

Good and timely service! I was called about a worn serpentine belt, given the price and asked if I wanted True Auto to repair. I did, and they charged what was quoted. I recommend True Auto! 👍

Jack Moesker Mar 3, 2016

I am completely happy with the very professional and knowledgeable folks at True Auto. With my Honda warranty now expired there is no need to go out of my way to a dealership.True Auto will be my go-to place for all the service my CRV needs in the future.

Walter Malofy Feb 2, 2023

My Acura broke down near Fergus the other day- I was able to limp it into the shop. They took care of it the next day (surprisingly quick!) which made me even happier! Even more appreciated was the texting feature- they gave me the breakdown on my car and the other issues it may be having. Very timely and efficient in my opinion. There was no nonsense, no up-selling, and no pressure tactics- part of why I am so impressed. Can’t say that for every shop out there. Facility is also very clean and up to date. I have happily referred my sister and brother in law (who live in Fergus) to this auto centre.

Jamie Martinello Jan 1, 2023

I called this morning to get a crack in my windshield repaired, new tires, and also brighter head lights installed. It was all completed the same day. They were professional from start to finish. I will be taking my truck in the future to True Auto Care.

Always amazing service, I have been coming here since moving to Fergus in 2016, and will continue to do so! Kyle was so helpful.

Victoria Heppolette Nov 11, 2022

Friendly and informative staff. The technician told me that my vehicle didn't need the service that I called about. They could have taken advantage but instead, they were honest and forthright. I would recommend them without hesitation.

Jacquie D'Abbenigno Nov 11, 2022

Thanks Jenna and team for providing a quick and efficient service and tyre change while doing a full inspection to decide on any possible future maintenance. Great work!

Back in 2007 I purchased a brand new Mini Cooper convertible. During the warranty period I dealt with the Mini dealership. In August 2012 there was a noise from under the car. Turned out to be a muffler. This was my first interaction with True Auto Care. The muffler came with a lifetime warranty. Fast forward to August 2022 when a new noise appeared from under the car. After removing a couple rotten pipe sections and replacing with new sleeves the exhaust problem was solved. That was a span of 10 years. Over that time I have trusted my Mini to no one else but True Auto Care for all its necessary service. In a week my wife and I will be moving from Elora, where we've lived for the last 40 years, to Kitchener (we jokingly call it East Berlin.) The move in no means means that we will be searching for a new company to service our vehicles; no, we will continue to trust True Auto Care and will return to them for any service required, even if we have to have the vehicle's towed to Fergus. BTW, that muffler on the Mini is still doing its job. . — Brian Cameron

Alyson Dubler Nov 11, 2021

Very Professional, car was done when they said it would be. Great service,

Susanne Wilmot Nov 11, 2021

Friendly enough people. Was able to get my car in at a decent date. Did a good job fixing my car I have no complaints there! Prices are fairly good. I might think about going back, the only thing stopping me is they were not very accommodating when it came to me bringing my own parts in. Apparently they charge more for that which I find totally unfair because I was bringing more work to them including previous visits there. I find them charging more when you have your own parts very Petty and don't think it's fair.

Angela Molendyk Nov 11, 2021

Great. Fair prices and always helpful. Will return

Joanne Smithers Oct 10, 2021

Deed K Aug 8, 2021

My experience at True Auto Care has been nothing but positive. They are always there to help answer questions when needed and fix the problem at hand. I often drop my car off before work and they communicate with me efficiently throughout the day (via text or over the phone). My car is always ready when they say it will be and they make the pick up process easy based on my schedule and needs. I would highly recommend their services for regular maintenance as well as any other issue that arise.

Amanda Voisin Aug 8, 2021

Excellent as always! Thank you again. I purchased tires a few months ago and had concerns for how loud there were. Ron and the staff at True Auto got me in quickly and looked into my fears. We discussed everything and my worries were addressed.
