Are you scheduling regular wheel alignments for your commercial trucks? In the commercial transportation industry, the two highest operating expenses are fuel and tires, and while fuel consumption can be difficult to control, scheduling a routine commercial truck alignment can positively impact your costs as a business. At LC Clark Tire, we serve the commercial truck alignment needs in Pompano Beach, FL, Fort Lauderdale, FL, Coral Springs, FL, and other surrounding areas.
Wheel alignments are designed to realign wheels to a straighter roll position on the road for less roll resistance. Less roll resistance means less friction, and ultimately, better fuel economy, tire life, component wear, and decreased driver fatigue. It is especially important to do regular front end alignments on commercial trucks, since the back wheels on the tandem axles have to follow in their tracks. However, misaligned tandem axles will cause the truck to “thrust” or “scrub,” resulting in a vehicle being pushed out of straight line travel.
Our state-of-the-art truck wheel alignment equipment quickly and efficiently locates misalignment issues. All computerized wheel balancers are operated by highly trained mechanics. Every commercial truck alignment service begins with a front end alignment and extends to all tandem axles.
Our wheel alignment experts understand all scenarios and symptoms of misalignment on commercial trucks. If your drivers are complaining of “fighting” the wheel, or the truck “pulling” to the side, then a semi-truck alignment service is a necessary procedure to counteract these effects of misaligned wheels. Routine commercial truck alignments can help improve irregular tire wear that accumulates over thousands of miles. Typically, we suggest scheduling routine commercial truck alignments every 50,000 to 60,000 miles to keep your fleet operating in top conditions.
Let us help you keep your operating costs down and your commercial trucks driving and handling true. To schedule a commercial truck alignment service today, contact us or call us at (954) 975-5335.
