What Can I Expect with Pontiac GTO Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Pontiac GTO's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. 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 Pontiac intended. When your system is aligned to the measurements that Pontiac 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 2006 Pontiac GTO, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Pontiac. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

When Should I Get Pontiac GTO Wheel Alignment?

It's a good idea to have your Pontiac GTO 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 may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2006 Pontiac GTO: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your GTO if your wheel alignment needs attention.
