Posted by & filed under Auto Care Tips, Auto Repair.

Did you know that it is just as important to get ready for driving in the spring and summer as it is to get ready for winter? Winter snow and ice creates pot holes and other road hazards that can cause issues for your car including poor wheel alignment, low tire pressure and more. In order to make sure your vehicle is ready for the warmer weather ahead, we recommend adding routine tire maintenance to your spring car care checklist. We provide expert wheel alignment in Robbinsdale and the surrounding areas, and we have a thing or two to say about wheel alignment, tire care and what you can do to prepare your car for spring and summer.

Have Your Wheel Alignment Checked

We all know that one of the worst parts of winter isn’t the weather: it’s the potholes! Get your car’s alignment checked by a reputable automotive service and repair shop, like Auto Electric. Potholes can affect the alignment of your car, and that can cause a host of other problems.

Wheel alignment can affect the overall functionality and efficiency of your car. When your wheels are knocked out of alignment by poorly maintained roads or pot holes, it can cause your tires to wear out quickly and even affect the way your car drives as well as its gas mileage. So, if you notice uneven tire wear, a feeling of wandering or a vibrating steering wheel; these could all be signs you need wheel alignment.

Bring your vehicle in to Auto Electric and we can inspect your wheel alignment and repair it for you if needed.

While You’re at it, Have Your Tires Assessed Too

Winter weather can often deflate your tires. Tire pressure can drop about one pound per square inch for every 10 degrees the temperature drops. Driving on underinflated or overinflated tires can be dangerous, especially when those spring showers arrive. While you’re here for a wheel alignment, we can check the pressure of your tires and get them back to where they should be.

We will also check your tire’s tread and rotate your tires. Rotating your tires can help alert us to any odd wear patterns which could indicate the need for wheel alignment or repairs.

Taking care of your tires today can not only extend their life and keep your car running optimally; it can even help you save money in the long run. Avoid unexpected, expensive damage by taking preventative measures like wheel alignment, tire rotation and more.
