Here at Brilliance Honda of Crystal Lake our service center is ready to assist you. We provide tire service and alignments at the dealership, and encourage you to make an appointment with us to keep maintenance regular so you keep moving!

In terms of tire services we offer, it covers a broad range. The most important is a tire rotation. Tire rotations are when we move the tires around, usually from front to back of a vehicle. This allows the treads to evenly wear together, and it lessens the amount of wear a set of tires might have if they're not rotated. You want long-lasting tires that are able to last around 12,000 to 15,000 miles and a rotation will help maximize those efforts. Additionally, we're here to check your tire inflation levels, can evaluate punctures to see if the tire can be repaired or if you need a new one, plus we offer tire changeovers for anyone who uses winter tires too.

Alignments are also a needed service to always by mindful of, generally every 6,000 miles. This is what helps the tires perform properly and keeps your drive smooth with better handling and efficiency. An alignment is an adjustment of the vehicle suspension, as it is connected to your wheels. Evaluating and adjusting three different aspects the right alignment centers your vehicle with the right angles for your tire to properly make contact with the road.

This includes the camber, which is the inward or outward angle of the tire when viewed from the front. Too much tilt in one direction or the other means your car is out of alignment, and might have worn ball joints or bearings. Then, there's the toe, which is how your tires turn inward our outward when looking straight down at them to your feet, while the caster is the what helps the steering, stability and cornering ability of your car, truck or SUV.

Some signs you might need an alignment? If you're noticing uneven tread wear even if you're regularly rotating your tires, or you feel your steering wheel is off center or vibrating, or your vehicle pulls to the left or right.

When you have regular alignments and everything is to standard for your vehicle, the difference is noticeable. You get better efficiency, smoother driving and handling. If issues that are signs of a vehicle behind out of alignment aren't addressed, it can cause larger repair problems for you over time. Those added costs can be avoided when you schedule alignments with regular tire rotations and other basic service needs.
