Alignments; Maximize your Tire Life, Ride Comfort, and Vehicle Performance
Four Wheel / Car alignment are arguably the most important aspect of wheel and tire maintenance.
Auto manufacturers spend extensive time and money making sure that their vehicles ride smooth and handle exceptionally on the road. Unfortunately unavoidable circumstances exist; we drive over potholes, speed bumps, and rough roads (certainly in Cherokee, County at least!) all of which will play a big part in throwing your vehicle’s wheel alignment off.
What makes Fastlane Import Auto Repair different from most automotive shops or tire shops performing alignments in Woodstock, GA?

Steering Wheel Off-Center and pulling to one side = Your Vehicle Needs an Alignment
Three angles determine proper wheel alignment:
Toe also known as tracking, is the lengthwise angle of each wheel on the vehicle
Camber is the inward or outward angle of the front tires as viewed from the front
Inward tilt is negative, outward tilt is positive
Caster is the position of the wheel in the fender that promotes steering angle, steering self centering, and straight-line tracking
Car alignments are an important part of extending the life of your tires, because misaligned tires inevitably lead to poor tire performance and uneven tread wear.
Car Alignment can be thrown off from circumstances such as;
Driving over a pothole
Running into a curb
Running over speed bumps too quickly
Normal use over time
Suspension, Steering, & Driveline repair
Poor alignment decreases gas mileage, tire life, and will increases the risk of damage to other components, including steering components.
A proper alignment can make a bad car good, and a good car excellent.
