Ensure your tires are in optimal condition with precise alignment services at McGhees Auto Service.

Our certified tire specialists employ state-of-the-art equipment to meticulously inspect your tires for signs of uneven wear, cracking, or slow leaks.



Alignment Services
Wheel alignment, a fundamental aspect of regular car maintenance, entails the precise adjustment of wheel angles to align with the manufacturer's specifications. This process ensures that your suspension and steering systems operate at optimal angles, ultimately reducing tire wear. Alignment is a complex task and our skilled experts who excel in this field can guarantee precision and quality.

Alignment FAQs

How long does a full alignment take?

Wheel alignments typically take one hour for both two-wheel and four-wheel drive vehicles. However, excessive wear and tear on suspension components like bushings, track rods, or the system itself can require replacements, extending the service time.

What happens if you wait too long for an alignment?

Tire alignment is crucial for maintaining optimal tire performance and lifespan. Even slight misalignments, undetectable to the naked eye but measurable in tenths of degrees or hundredths of inches, can lead to premature and uneven wear. As time passes, this wear becomes more pronounced, impacting both safety and fuel efficiency. To avoid these issues, regular alignment checks every 6,000 miles are recommended.

What is checked during an alignment?

Three crucial aspects are assessed during a tire alignment inspection: camber, toe, and caster. Camber refers to the angle formed by the vertical axis of the tire and a line perpendicular to the road surface, as viewed from the front. When the top of the tire tilts inwards, creating an "X" shape with the wheels, it's considered negative camber. This can increase wear on the tire's inner edge through increased friction.

Do I need an alignment after replacing tires?

The answer is yes! A proper wheel alignment ensures precise angles between wheels and the road, maximizing tire life, enhancing handling, and distributing wear evenly across the tread. This translates to better fuel efficiency, safer driving, and a more enjoyable ride.

Don't let uneven tire wear diminish the longevity of your tires. Experience a fast and cost-effective tire alignment at our shop in Waldorf. Call us today at 301-843-6551 to schedule an appointment.

Testimonials

, 10/04/2021
Mr. Mcghee and staff were very cordial and responsive to all of my inquiries. I inquired about a MD State Inspection for my used SUV and he answered all of my questions respectfully and in detail. He mentioned that vehicles were serviced on a First come, First serve basis depending on how soon I could get my vehicle to their Waldorf location. The service men were cordial and asked if we had any further questions and provided us with a time frame for servicing our vehicle and called as stated when the SUV was ready. I was pleased with the service provided and the attentiveness to our vehicle needs; they even told a few jokes while we waited and provided information about what businesses were around that we could kill time in while we waited for our SUV to be inspected. Would refer this shop to others and may be back for other services necessary for the upkeep of my vehicle. Thank you.
