Wheel Alignment Services and Tire Balancing

Because of road and driver variability, there is uneven wear on each of your vehicle’s four wheels. As a result, each of the wheels and tires suffers from a different rate of deterioration. It’s very important that you have your vehicle’s suspension properly aligned annually. Proper wheel alignment gives you longer tire life by evenly distributing the vehicle’s weight and reducing stress on steering and suspension components.

Wheel alignment should always be checked when:

  • New tires or suspension components are installed
  • Your vehicle has encountered a major road hazard
  • Unusual tire wear patterns appear
  • After a collision or accident

Wheel alignment warning signs include:

  • Tires squeal or vibrate while driving
  • Steering feels unstable
  • Vehicle pulls to the right or left
  • Steering wheel is not straight while driving
  • Tires are wearing unevenly

Let Rudy Schmid of Syracuse, NY restore your vehicle’s wheel alignment back to its factory standards. Our experienced staff will perform a complete steering and suspension inspection to diagnose the problem and recommend the most cost-effective solution to get your vehicle back on the road quickly and safely.

Tire Balancing and Rotation in Syracuse NY at Rudy Schmid

Tire Balancing and Wheel Rotation

As a driver, you’re the first one to feel a shake or vibration in your vehicle. It’s very important your vehicle’s wheels are properly rotated and balanced on a regular basis to maximize tire life and eliminate cupping wear. At a minimum, our technicians recommend tire balancing and wheel rotation every 5,000 miles.

At Rudy Schmid, we offer Road Force™ Balancing, which allows us to keep wheel and tire assemblies rotating smoothly and properly at top speeds. During wheel balancing, the technology of the Road Force Balancer will take into consideration not only the imbalance of the tire and wheel, but help us determine if you have a wheel that is bent or a tire that has outlived its usefulness. If a tire is found to be defective, we can recommend a replacement – one that fits your car’s make and model and matches the current tires that you have.

Whether it be tires, steering, or suspension, our experienced staff will perform a complete inspection to diagnose the problem and recommend the most cost-effective solution to get your vehicle back on the road quickly and safely.

    Rudy Scmid was great as always! I dropped my daughter’s car to have a new headlight, taillight and the front fender repaired in the morning, and picked it up the next day. Fast, Friendly, and Fair.
    I wouldn’t bring my cars anywhere else.
    … More Also, they washed the outside of the car, which is more than my daughter ever did.
