Your car is engineered to have its wheels set in very precise ways for optimal performance. The way the wheels are set is called the alignment, and it has three components: camber, caster and toe. Properly aligned, your car will handle easily and show even tire wear.

You can often tell when your car needs an alignment because it will pull to the side when you’re driving straight, so you’re constantly adjusting it back to center. Sometimes it mostly pulls when you turn, and it doesn’t head back to center on its own after the turn.

There’s no set guideline about when you should have the alignment checked if you’re not having problems. Every two or three years is a good general rule. At Cutter Volvo Cars, we align every vehicle to the manufacturer’s specs, so you can expect superior handling as you travel Waipahu roads.
