Proper wheel alignment is extremely important to protect tire investment and tire life, maximize fuel economy and stop safely in wet weather conditions.

Vehicles with wheel alignment conditions can suffer a decrease in fuel efficiency by up to 7 percent. As vehicle manufacturers equip more vehicles with on-board driver-assist systems, such as electronic stability control, parking assist, traction control and more, an increasing number of OEM's now require a steering system reset during alignment service. It is important to have an alignment system that can reset all alignment-related sensors during alignment service.
