Alignments and Balancing
We'll Smooth Out Your Ride
Our goal for wheel balancing and alignment is to ensure your vehicle rolls straight and has a smooth ride. Along with having the best TIA-Certified technicians in the area, Best One has invested in technology and machinery to precisely balance wheels and align your commercial truck, light truck, or recreational vehicle.
It’s no secret the ForceMatch® HD by Hunter Engineering Company® is the best heavy-duty wheel balancer on the market. We can eliminate wheel vibrations for rims up to 30 inches in diameter. The state-of-the-art machine uses laser sensors, a load roller, SmartWeight®, and CenteringCheck® to ensure the most accurate wheel balance ever.
Our alignments will improve driving performance, gas mileage, extend your tires’ lives, prevent vibrations, and keep your vehicle from pulling in one direction. Usually, for commercial trucks, the main culprit of a poor wheel alignment are the axles, but in light trucks, the suspension’s toe, camber, and caster cause most alignment problems.
We recommend scheduling a commercial truck alignment every 80,000 to 100,000, which is about the same time you usually replace your steer tires. We check your alignment during our routine inspection and service when you bring your truck into one of our two shops.
For tire balancing, your commercial truck steer tires should be balanced every 20,000 miles.
We recommend having your alignment checked once a year or when you purchase new tires for your vehicle. If you are buying new tires from us, alignments come standard at no additional cost.
We recommend tire balancing every other time you rotate your tires. Generally, this is every 10,000 to 12,000 miles. Balancing is much quicker on light trucks and RVs because there are fewer wheels.
A heavy impact will cause your vehicle to go out of alignment. Typical examples are hitting a pothole, jumping a curb, or an auto accident. Other times, prolonged use will cause wear and tear on your vehicle’s suspension, causing alignment issues. With routine alignment inspection and maintenance, we can prevent damage and extend the life suspension and tires.
