If you know anything about wheel alignment, you've probably heard the terms camber, caster and toe-in
Alameda, CA (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
Oakland and Alameda auto repair shop, Alameda Auto Lab Car Repair and Service, offering oil changes, auto repair and truck rentals in Alameda, is featuring a propane special to get customers ready for BBQ season. By mentioning this advertisement, customers will receive a BBQ tank refill for only $19 during March.
“We are also still offering an oil change with oil filter special for most cars,” Robert Ramos of Alameda Auto Lab Car Repair and Service said. “Give us a call to learn more about details and pricing.”
The car repair shop would also like to take this opportunity to offer car drivers tips on knowing when a car has a wheel-alignment problem.
"If you know anything about wheel alignment, you've probably heard the terms camber, caster and toe-in," Ramos said. “The camber is the angle of the wheel, measured in degrees, when viewed from the front of the vehicle.”
When the top of the wheel is leaning out from the center of the car, then the camber is positive. If it's leaning in, then the camber is negative. If the camber is out of adjustment, it will cause tire wear on one side of the tire's tread. If the camber is too far negative, for instance, then the tire will wear on the inside of the tread.
Alameda Auto Lab Car Repair and Service is proud to have sponsored the Alameda Boys and Girls Club auction on March 3rd. Alameda Auto Lab has helped the club for many years.
