Are you scheduling regular wheel alignments for your commercial trucks? If you’re in Breinigsville area, you can take advantage of our big truck alignment service. In the transportation industry, the two highest operating expenses are fuel and tires. While fuel consumption can be difficult to control, scheduling routine commercial truck alignments can reduce your overall operating costs by keeping your tires pointed straight.
Semi-Truck Wheel Alignment
Keeping up on wheel maintenance has its safety benefits. Did you know:
- Wheel alignments are designed to realign wheels to a straighter roll position on the road for less roll resistance. Less roll resistance means less friction, and ultimately, better fuel economy, tire life, component wear, and decreased driver fatigue
- Front end alignments on commercial trucks are especially important since the back wheels on the tandem axles have to follow in their tracks. Misaligned tandem axles will cause the truck to “thrust” or “scrub,” resulting in a vehicle being pushed out of straight-line travel. Every service begins with a front-end alignment and extends to all tandem axles.
- If your drivers complain of fighting the wheel, or the truck pulling to the side, then a semi-truck alignment service is a necessary procedure to counteract these effects of misaligned wheels.
