Ayres-Muffler-alignment-fleet-Ray-Co

This 2013 Ford F-450 fleet vehicle was brought to us by Ray Co. Drywall. This fleet truck needs a few things including a front end alignment, new ball joints and shocks plus the rotors resurfaced. If you look carefully at the after photo below you can see the lines go in multiple directions. This non-direction finish helps the pads “seed” better.

Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment can Align Almost Anything!

Even race cars!

elva-race-car-alignment-AYRES-pit

In the photos you can see Ayres employees working on the front and rear alignment for an Elva race car. The devices attached to each of the tires measure the tip, casters, camber and toe ends of each wheel and then displays them on a monitor so they can go in and adjust each wheel for optimal efficiency.

AYRES-alignment-elva-race-carAligning tires on a race car is different than a street car. Street car owners are usually most concerned with consistent wear of their tires to extend their longevity. In contrast, these tires might make it through one race so they align them differently, regularly on specific specs from Ayres customers.

This customer for example will often give Ayres different alignment parameters for different tracks. They have different concerns than owners of a street car. Their goal is proper handling on the track. They want their cars fast and able to take the corners even faster.

If you have a race car or a street car that seems to pulling to the left or right, your tires show signs of uneven wear or when you are driving straight you steering wheel is crooked it is probably time to give Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment a call to schedule an alignment.

Mention you saw this on Facebook to get a street car front and rear wheel alignment for only $79.95!

How Much Can a Wheel Be?

We thought we would have a little fun with this. One of our customers came in with a bent wheel (see photo). Their car was a bit more unique than most, a 2007 Bentley Continental GT350. So how much do you suppose a wheel could cost?

 

$4,500

Just to replace the wheel that doesn’t include tire or the labor to put it on!

Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment Has a Rack for You

At Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment we have three different types of racks to best work on your car, truck, bus, motorhome, commercial vehicle and more.

The first and most common is held by the tires or wheel assembly. This is the one you can easily drive up on and then your car is lifted. (Sorry you cannot stay in the car while it is being lifted) This rack is best to work on your exhaust system, brakes and front end.

Two arms swing left and right to allow for best placement on each vehicle so Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment is able to pick up your car without damaging it. The frame contact lift is best used for tire replacement or service, tire rotations and suspension work.
