What is a tire alignment?

A tire alignment, sometimes called a wheel alignment is an adjustment of the vehicles’ suspension (the system that connects the vehicle to its wheels). Proper alignment improves handling and keep your vehicle from pulling in one direction or vibrating strangely on the road. It also prolongs the life of your tires.

Signs that your vehicle needs an alignment:

There are a few ways to determine if your vehicle needs an alignment service. If your vehicle shows signs of any of the following, you should have it checked by one of our certified technicians as soon as possible.

  • Uneven tire tread wear
  • Vehicle pulling to the left or right
  • Your steering wheel is off center when driving straight
  • Steering wheel vibration
  • Vibrating noise coming from the tires -road noise when you drive

What do technicians look for during an alignment service?

When one of our service technicians looks over your tire alignment, their main concern will consist of three things: camber, toe, and caster angles.

  • Camber- The inward or outward angle of the tire when viewed from the front of the vehicle is the camber. If a tire tilts too far inward or outward indicates that there is improper alignment and it should be adjusted. Camber misalignment can be caused by worn bearings, ball joints, and other wheel-suspension parts.
  • Toe- Toe alignment is the extent to which your tires turn inward or outward when viewed from above. Stand up and point your toes inward toward the center of your body, when the tires on your car are angled the same way it is called toe-in alignment. Angle your feet outward and you have toe-out alignment. Both require adjustment.
  • Caster- The angle of your steering axis when viewed from the side of your vehicle is known as caster. The caster angle helps balance cornering, stability, and steering. Positive caster is when the steering axis points towards the driver. Negative caster is when the steering axis tilts toward the front of your vehicle.

They are accurate in diagnosing the problem in my car and truck, fixed the problem and works like a top. I like their honesty, if they don't feel they can fix the problem, they won't try and bill you, they will recommend you to another shop who possibly can. I will continue to take our vehicles there as long as I'm getting great service that's affordable. Thank you for your great service.

My check engine light came on while traveling from Twin Falls, and I needed to get my car in quick. They were wonderful to work with, they were able to squeeze me in, and did an excellent job, and charged me a very fair price. I will definitely use then again in the future.

The team at Meridian Automotive has done a great job on servicing our fleet vehicles. We had been using another company for years but started to notice a downturn in the quality of work and level of service. We made the switch to Meridian Automotive and are so glad we did. Do you want to be treated with kindness, respect, and integrity? If so, this is the place for you. They do quality work and provide piece of mind. We will continue to use Meridian Automotive for our business fleet vehicles. I will also be utilizing their services for my personal vehicles, and this includes a classic truck that my dad restored. I can assure you the only peolpe I would let work on that truck are those I trust completely.

The folks at Meridian Automotive has always been everything I want in a mechanic: knowledgeable, prompt, personable, professional, affordable, and easy to interact with. Brought my car in with a cracked cooling line, dropped it off for next day pickup because that's a convenient option for me, and everything was tip top after the in-and-out pickup process. They've been greeting me by name since the second time I stepped foot in the building, making it clear they care more about their customers than they actually have to.

Really friendly group of people that are quick to work on a car and happy to help figure out car stuff. My wife's car went down and the check engine light was flashing. They were super helpful and were able to get things figured out quickly so that we could get her car back on the road. I would definitely recommend
