Wheel Alignment Service for 1998 BMW 318i

How Does BMW 318i Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your BMW 318i's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way BMW intended them to. 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. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Before we adjust the alignment of your 1998 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. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

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 could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 1998 BMW 318i: pulling to the left or right, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your 318i dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for BMW 318i Cost?

BMW 318i wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Correctly aligned wheels can help boost fuel efficiency and increase the lifespan of your tires, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Contact your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a no-hassle 1998 BMW 318i wheel alignment estimate.
