Honda cars, trucks, minivans, and SUVs are designed to provide a remarkable driving experience, and the wheels, unsurprisingly, play a large role in this.

When you bring your Honda to Stephen Wade Honda for this service, our technicians will first inspect your wheels’ camber, toe, and caster angles. The camber angle refers to how much the wheels are tilted when viewed from the front or rear, while the toe refers to the tilt of the wheels when viewed from above or below. Caster angle is a way to measure how much the steering axis deviates from vertical.
If all these angles are correct, you can go on your way! But if not, our technicians will use precision tools to realign the wheels to the proper angles as set by the factory.
If you drive a Honda with two-wheel drive, it will generally require only two-wheel alignment. Similarly, vehicles with all-wheel drive generally require four-wheel alignment. The biggest exception is all-wheel drive vehicles with a solid rear axle, which usually only need two-wheel alignment.
Wheels that are improperly aligned can cause a number of symptoms. If your vehicle pulls to one side while you’re driving, the steering wheel is crooked, the tires squeal excessively, or your tires have uneven wear, it’s likely a sign of wheel misalignment. However, the symptoms of misaligned wheels can also be minor and hard to see, which is why regular alignment inspections are helpful.
