BMW / MINI Alignment Specialist
If you’re wondering whether your BMW needs an alignment, first look at your tires. Uneven tire wear or, more wear on the outside of some tires is a prime indicator that your car is likely out of alignment. Here are a few more indicators:
- Vehicle seems to be pulling to one side, even when you think you’re driving straight
- Steering wheel vibrates
- Driving straight, but steering wheel isn’t centered
- Holding steering wheel straight and car goes right or left on its own
If none of these indicators occur but, it has been awhile since your last alignment, check your owner’s manual to see how often the manufacturer recommends having this service or simply bring it to Superformance and we will be more than happy to conduct an alignment check to give you your current measurements at no cost. With our state of the art equipment we can perform professional quality alignments on 2 or 4 wheels with no limits on makes and models which include Bentley, Rolls Royce, Aston Martin and plenty more exotics.
The most visible benefit of an alignment is less tire wear. When tires wear down, they’ll do so evenly on a properly aligned suspension. Tires can be quite expensive — easily starting at over $100 or more per tire — whereas an alignment often costs between $90 to $150, making it a cost-effective procedure that should be part of regular preventive maintenance.
An alignment will ensure that your car drives straight and handles properly, making your BMW driving experience that much more secure. You will also get better gas mileage since your tires will be properly aligned with the road, decreasing resistance.
