Wheel Alignment Service for 1996 BMW 318is

How Does BMW 318is Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your BMW 318is's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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. Three good things happen as a result: your ride is smoother, 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 1996 BMW 318is, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match BMW recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
