Wheel Alignment Services

Stay on the Right Path with Proper Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment is an essential component of vehicle maintenance, and Hans Wittler’s Automotive is here to provide you with the best alignment service in Albuquerque, NM.

City streets and uneven highways can harm your German car’s wheel alignment. When your Mercedes, Audi, or other German vehicle falls out of alignment, the damage caused by uneven wear and tear can cost thousands of dollars in the long run.

To make matters worse, most dealerships ignore the warning signs of misalignment or put off dealing with them until the last minute. It can be tempting for some businesses to procrastinate on regular vehicle maintenance and instead focus on money-making activities and sound repairs.

But at Hans Wittler’s Automotive, that isn’t the case. With careful attention to detail and a preventative mindset, we offer wheel alignment services to preserve the value of your investment for many years.

Bring your German vehicle to our Albuquerque locations for a wheel alignment today.

What is

Wheel Alignment?

Wheel alignment refers to the process of adjusting three angles of your wheels. This ensures the angles are perpendicular to the ground and parallel. 

Proper alignment of these three measurements is critical for any vehicle’s performance, safety, and tire longevity. 

The wheel’s angle when viewed from the front or rear of the vehicle. Proper camber ensures even tire wear and optimal handling. If the top of the wheel tilts inward towards the vehicle, it is called negative camber. If it tilts outward, it is called positive camber.
The angle of the steering pivot when viewed from the side of the vehicle. It determines the stability and steering effort of your vehicle. If the pivot is tilted towards the vehicle’s rear, it is called a positive caster. If it tilts towards the front, it is called a negative caster.
The angle of the wheels when viewed from the top of the vehicle. If the wheels point inward towards each other, it is called toe-in. If they point outward, it is called toe-out. Like in camber, the right toe ensures optimal handling and reduces tire wear.

Proper wheel alignment provides several benefits, including:

When your wheels are correctly aligned, your vehicle will drive straight, making it easier to steer and handle.
Proper wheel alignment reduces the risk of accidents by providing better control over your vehicle.
Misaligned wheels cause uneven tire wear, which reduces the lifespan of your tires. Proper wheel alignment ensures even wear and prolongs the life of your tires.
When your wheels are correctly aligned, your vehicle experiences less drag, which translates to better fuel efficiency.

How Often Should I Get a

Wheel Alignment?

It’s recommended to have your wheel alignment checked every 10,000 miles or once a year, whichever comes first.

However, you should also have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs:

Your steering wheel is off-center  |  Your vehicle pulls to one side  |  Uneven tire wear  |  Vibrations in the steering wheel

How We Perform Wheel Alignment For

German Vehicles

Our wheel alignment services are designed to accommodate select models and ensure the best possible outcome for fine German vehicles.

German vehicles drive better than any car on the road. They also require careful wheel alignment to ensure their lifespan remains long and rewarding. 

When you visit for a wheel alignment, we first address the three angles—the camber, caster, and toe. Then we adjust your alignment depending on your suspension type. 

If you own an all-wheel drive, we may perform a full or four-wheel alignment where we adjust all four wheels. Otherwise, we may perform a front wheel alignment where the angles of the front wheels are the only ones adjusted.

Wheel Alignment vs.

Other Services

Several services often need clarification with wheel alignment, which can lead to incorrect or unnecessary repairs.

Tire Balancing
Tire balancing involves placing small weights on the wheels to balance them and ensure smooth driving. Wheel alignment often needs to clarify this because both services involve the wheels.
Tire Replacement

Like tire balancing, this service is often confused with wheel alignment because it also involves tires. In tire replacement, technicians replace worn or damaged tires with new ones. In alignment, these tires remain intact.

Steering and Suspension Repair
Tire balancing involves placing small weights on the wheels to balance them and ensure smooth driving. Wheel alignment often needs to clarify this because both services involve the wheels.

Understanding these differences is vital to ensure your vehicle receives the appropriate repairs. If you’re unsure what service your vehicle needs, consult the qualified technicians at Hans Wittler’s Automotive, who can diagnose and recommend the necessary services.
