If your wheels are out of alignment, they essentially want to go in slightly different directions. As they struggle to go their own separate ways, and you force them to go straight ahead, everybody loses: they lose tread faster than they should and you lose some control over the vehicle. You also lose money because you'll have to replace your tires sooner.

HIGH MILEAGE IS A STATE OF MIND
Is your Toyota in the 100,000-Mile Club?
It used to be assumed that reaching the 100,000 mile mark for an automobile meant that every day without a breakdown was a bit of a miracle.
And, despite the rare stories of the hyper-conscious driver who could coax a few hundred thousand miles from his or her car, that assumption was not far from the truth. Things just started to go wrong. Then Toyotas came along and, well, just seemed to last longer.
And today's Toyotas seem to last a lot longer. They're engineered to go further with less maintenance.
So if your Toyota's hit the "Big 100", let's celebrate with a 15%* discount on any Service, parts and labor.
Just tell your Toyota Walnut Creek Service Advisor that you're in the 100,000-Mile Club.
