Wheels that are out of alignment can cause uneven wear on your tires and may cause your car to pull in one direction or another, or make your steering wheel vibrate. A tire alignment helps ensure your tires are working correctly and prolongs their life.
At Carz R Us in Machesney Park, our team of ASE certified technicians are trained to diagnose alignment and suspension issues and make proper adjustments or repairs. During a tire or wheel alignment, a technician will adjust the angles of the tires which affects how they make contact with the road.
Plus, we’ll inspect your suspension with every oil change service, helping to avoid wear due to faulty suspension parts or alignment issues. This preventative maintenance service helps avoid premature replacement due to uneven wear or early wear.

"I brought a 2006 Ford Mustang in for a pre-purchase inspection. They were very thorough and told me exactly what I needed to pay attention to in the near future and showed me how clean the car was underneath as far as any surface rust went. I felt confident in the purchase of the car after that. These guys know what they're talking about and will make sure you understand everything as well."
"I'm a regular customer but am usually only here maybe twice a year; they still greet me by name and ask how I've been. I just came for an oil change and a quick check on something I thought might be an issue- they checked it out and went over the results with me and make sure I understand what they are doing and why. Friendly, great service and a local business."
"I don’t EVER do google reviews but i felt this was much deserved...
I’m moving To SC and thus driving across the country.. They were able to get me in the week of and Give my car the TLC needed to make it down there. I don’t trust people easily, especially when it comes to cars, but I trust these guys. They didn’t try to push any unnecessary work on me Like many other car shops might. Even though there are other things my car could use but weren’t pertinent to getting me down to SC. Integrity is the word that comes to mind... They even offer veteran and military discounts and came and picked me up when my car was done... would recommend 11 out of 10 times!"
