Wheel Alignment Service for 1997 BMW 318i

What Can I Expect with BMW 318i Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your BMW 318i's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has 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, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. Bring your 1997 BMW 318i in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match BMW recommendations. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.
