St. Paul Automotive has built a successful business over the years by hiring expert mechanics, expanding our knowledge of automobiles to include just about any vehicle that is self-powered, and by respecting our customers and potential customers. The way we treat our customers is probably the most important one of all. We know that, even in booming economic times, no one likes to spend money unnecessarily. We have always worked hard to keep our costs competitive and to communicate clearly, effectively, and honestly with our customers about the problems that brought them to us. When the issue involves some of the more complex aspects of the vehicle, it is even more important to know that you can trust your auto shop to be honest with you, and to fully explain what the problem is and how to fix it. Wheel alignment tends to be one of the simpler problems to fix, but there are still some very complex mechanisms associated with wheel alignment that require the same level of clarity and honesty as the more complicated automotive problems.
Importance Of Keeping Wheels Aligned
One of the most basic functions of an automobile is that it transports you from one place to another. It should do this safely and reliably. Just a bit further down the list of basic functions is that the vehicle should follow your lead—in other words, it should go exactly where you direct it to go. If you have an issue with wheel alignment, it is more difficult to guarantee that your vehicle will go where you want it to go.
Four-wheeled automobiles are machines that work best when they are properly balanced, and the wheels of your vehicles are great examples of this principle. Each of the four wheels should be pointing in exactly the same direction, and should be in perfect balance even when the car is in motion and you are adjusting the direction of the car. When the front wheels are turned, they should point in the same direction. The rear wheels, which do not turn, follow the front wheels. When one or more of your wheels is out of alignment, your vehicle operates very inefficiently.

Misalignment of wheels can cause your vehicle to pull to one side of the road. It causes excessive and unbalanced wear on your tires, too, which means that you will have to purchase new tires sooner than you would otherwise.
