The Difference Between Wheel Alignment and Front-End Alignment

You don't need to be a mechanic--or even mechanically inclined--to know if your car or SUV is out of alignment. If it tends to pull to the left or right as you're driving down the road in Marietta, OH, then it's time to schedule an appointment with the Service Department at C&C Toyota!

Wheel Alignment and Front-End Alignment Explained

Wheel alignment generally refers to all four wheels--especially on all-wheel drive vehicles. Front-end alignment, meanwhile, is in reference to the front two wheels.

Either way, the concept is the same. The wheels need to be aligned correctly so that Parkersburg, WV, drivers can drive straight down the road. Poor alignment is bad on two fronts. First, it's a clear safety hazard, having to make constant corrections to keep your car from veering into other lanes. Second, it dramatically shortens the lifespan of your tires, which increases your stopping distance, odds of a blowout, and the money you'll spend on new tires.
