Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1984 BMW 318i

Why Is BMW 318i Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your BMW 318i’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by BMW. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When your system is aligned to the measurements that BMW specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1984 BMW 318i, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from BMW. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your BMW 318i

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your BMW 318i alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 1984 BMW 318i: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your 318i if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My BMW 318i?
