Two-Wheel Alignment Service at City Volkswagen of Chicago, IL

Wheel alignment is a tire service that ensures the wheels on your Volkswagen meet the road at the correct angle as you drive around Park Ridge and Des Plaines, IL. Proper Volkswagen two-wheel alignment on your front wheels helps you steer straight, reduces wear and tear on the tread on your tires, and creates a smooth ride. At City Volkswagen of Chicago, we want you to enjoy your Volkswagen model to the fullest, and we offer front wheel alignment service as part of our service center offerings.

Two-Wheel Alignment Service Overview

Two-wheel alignment, also known as front wheel alignment, puts your wheels back into their proper camber. The camber is the angle that your tire meets the road. Properly aligned front wheels rest flat on the pavement across the tread regardless of the overall appearance of the tire.

Your Volkswagen can get out of alignment simply by driving on the roads around Melrose Park and Oak Park. The frost-freeze cycle that happens during the winter causes potholes to form, and regularly traveling across the potholes, and bad patch jobs causes your car to lose alignment. Over time, the wheels won’t meet the road at the proper angle because the axles supporting the wheels have shifted.

Four-Wheel Alignment vs. Two-Wheel Alignment

A 2WD Volkswagen has independent axles in the front and rear, but the thrust from the engine affects your steering. A two-wheel alignment service restores your steering to normal and counters the effect of the thrust, so your front wheels stay where you place them. You can get a four-wheel alignment if you so desire, but a Volkswagen two-wheel alignment is sufficient to keep all of your tires wearing evenly and your steering straight.

Recommended Maintenance Interval for Two-Wheel Alignment

It’s recommended that you get your wheels checked for alignment every two to three years, adjusting for road conditions and driving patterns. The more you drive over roads in poor condition, the sooner you should get your alignment checked.
