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.
The angle of your wheels in relation to the body of your vehicle is referred to as wheel alignment. True Auto Care in Palmerston, ON 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°.
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.
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:
Here are some dangers if you don’t fix the wheel alignment issue-
Once you get a wheel alignment done, you will notice some of the advantages, a few of them are:
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.
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.
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!
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
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.Eric Perreault Jan 1, 2023

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 CameronBrian Cameron Sep 9, 2022
