Wheel Alignment

Trust the professionals at Stephens Automotive to fix your wheel alignment in Des Moines, IA.

Your wheels should be parallel to each other and perpendicular to the road at all times. Correctly aligned wheels rely on the angles of the camber, caster, and toe. The camber measures the angle that the wheel stands relative to the road. Caster represents the angle of the wheel’s pivot when viewed from the side. The toe is the angle that refers to the directional difference between the tire and the centerline of the vehicle. All three of these angles need to be in line for the vehicle to drive efficiently and safely.

How do wheels get out of alignment?

Bumping a curb or even driving over a small pothole can throw your alignment off. Accidents can obviously impact your wheels’ alignment as well. Even minor changes to your wheel alignment can cause major problems and increased tread wear on your tires. Serious damages to your suspension and steering systems can result from wheel alignment issues that go unresolved. It’s recommended that you get your wheel alignment check about every 6,000 miles or once a year.

Benefits of correctly aligned wheels:

  • Tires last longer
  • Higher gas mileage
  • Safer for driving
  • Saves money
  • Better vehicle performance
  • Prevents costly suspension or steering issues

Located in Des Moines, IA, Stephens Automotive is happy to examine your wheel alignment and tweak the angles so that your vehicle runs optimally and tire wear is minimal.

Signs your wheel alignment might be off:

  • Uneven tread wear
  • Vehicle pulls to the right or left
  • Steering wheel vibrates at higher speeds
  • Crooked steering wheel when driving straight

We would love to help keep you safe on the road by regularly inspecting your wheel alignment and altering it to meet manufacturer’s recommendations. Stephens Automotive proudly keeps wheels correctly aligned for customers in Des Moines, IA and surrounding areas.

What amazing service! We recently had our mini-van worked on for a problem with it's air conditioning. Not only did Stephen's finish the work faster than completed, they also reduced the price of our bill to reflect the amount of labor. We were pleasantly surprised to find that kind of honesty! Thank you Stephen's, you've made us a loyal customer!
