1986 Volvo 245 Wheel Alignment

Why Is Volvo 245 Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Volvo 245's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has 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 Volvo intended. When your suspension is aligned to Volvo’s optimal measurements, there's equal pressure being applied to all of your tires. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Bring your 1986 Volvo 245 in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. After that, we can adjust your wheel alignment angles until they match Volvo’s recommended measurements. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your Volvo 245

It's a good idea to have your Volvo 245 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 1986 Volvo 245: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your 245 dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My Volvo 245?

On a budget? Volvo 245 wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of tires. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 1986 Volvo 245 wheel alignment estimate.
