Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 1985 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, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as BMW intended. When your suspension is aligned to BMW’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. As a result, you get several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1985 BMW 318i, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match BMW’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get BMW 318i Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your BMW 318i alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 1985 BMW 318i: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your 318i dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

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