Wheel Alignments Tea, SD
A wheel alignment is very beneficial to your car, and will actually save you money in the long run. What actually is a wheel alignment? A wheel alignment is done by a professional mechanic who hooks your car up to a laser-guided machine set to the correct specifications for your car. The mechanic then finely adjusts the suspension and steering components to align the wheels to be as straight, forward-facing as possible. This is not always perfect, but they can get the alignment within 0.5 degrees of perfect alignment. Doing so provides your car with many benefits. We at J&M Transmission & Auto Service recommend you get an alignment every two to three years, or if something happens to knock it out of alignment.
