WHY HAVE A FOUR WHEEL ALIGNMENT

Your MINI's suspension, wheels and tires are very carefully engineered to provide you that smooth, comfortable ride while maintaining that enjoyable handling experience. After experiencing potholes and other harsh road conditions and hazards, your alignment may be out of factory specification. This can increase road noise, decrease comfort and cause the steering and handling to behave unpredictably. In addition, a four wheel alignment will make sure the tires wear more evenly, allowing them to last longer. Saving you time, money and preserving your MINI's safe and capable handling.

An alignment of a wheel is determined by three angles, camber, toe and caster. Most vehicles' caster angle will not fall out of spec but camber and toe can change over time. Each of these three angles needs to be within a fraction of a degree to be correct.  

 

It's important to maintain a factory alignment as it will make sure your MINI handles as intended, quiet, smooth and incredibly capably on the road. We recommend you have an alignment performed once a year or whenever you mount a set of new tires. Our technicians are MINI Certified to make assessments, diagnose and fix any issues you could have.
