One hit of a deep rut can throw Ford’s entire alignment out of whack. When that happens, you open your car or truck up to many issues, like decreased tire tread life or other costly repairs.

As we are nearing the end of winter, it’s a great time to have your vehicle’s wheel alignment inspected with our service experts at Skaha Ford. During your appointment, our Technicians will put your vehicle on a hoist to assess the camber, which is the angle of your wheels measured in degrees. 

If your wheel is titled outward at the top, its camber is positive; however, if it’s tilted inward, then it is negative. Positive camber is good for stability, while negative camber is typical of high-performance vehicles with intense cornering. While having some positive or negative camber is acceptable, too much of either is not ideal.

The camber of your wheels will also dictate if your car pulls to the left or right of the road. Not only is any amount of pull dangerous, but it reduces your overall control. Ensuring your Ford’s wheels are correctly aligned will avoid drifting and maintain a smooth and enjoyable ride.  

Don’t let the potholes get your vehicle out of joint. Instead, book your wheel alignment inspection at Skaha Ford in BC by contacting our Service Department today.
