Ensure Your Tires Are Ready For April Showers

We’ve all heard the old saying, “April showers bring May flowers,” but the reality is, that with all the rain showers expected during the storm season, it’s a great time to think about the condition of your tires. It’s also worth noting that April is officially “National Car Care Month.” Coincidence? Perhaps. Many residents in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest are certainly glad to have the winter months closing out and we’re ready for the Spring, but is your car ready? The weather that we’ve all come to know, and love, is never kind to our vehicles, and harsh Minnesota storms can only be driven through in a reliable vehicle with tires that have what it takes to challenge the storms.

The Importance Of Four-Wheel Alignment

Getting your wheels properly aligned can save you money, enhance handling, and make your vehicle safer and faster. Four-wheel alignment is pretty much what it sounds like – making sure all four wheels are pointed in the right direction. Your car comes with a specific factory set-up and specifications. Overtime, accidents, normal wear, and tear, as well as road conditions, including potholes and curbs, can take their toll on your car’s steering and suspension system, and disrupt the alignment settings.

Timely Suspension And Alignment Repair

With the cold weather months almost here, most Minnesota drivers begin to prepare for the beating their vehicles take on the winter worn roads of our beloved state. It is not without good reason that we think this way. The swings of temperature cause the road surfaces we drive on to expand and contract. Whether the road is constructed of tarmac or concrete, neither has enough elasticity to remain smooth. When the road surface is exposed to extreme temperatures, expansion and contraction can lead to cracks, and cracks can lead to small holes, and small holes only become bigger holes. Then when snow, freezing rain, ice, and sleet are added to the mix, the speed with which tiny cracks become large potholes only increases. Bad roads can result in vehicle suspension and alignment issues. Continue reading

Automotive Alignment Service

There are aspects of automobile ownership and driving that are always obvious. You know if your car’s engine is making a high-pitched squealing noise or if your car goes over a large pothole.

Hitting potholes can gradually cause your car to go out of alignment. When the problem is subtle, you will see the results in uneven tire wear. If the problem becomes more severe, you will begin to feel your car pulling to the right or the left and feeling less responsive to your steering as a result. St. Paul Automotive can help you in all such cases. Continue reading
