Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto Alignment and Tire Adjustments
Ensure your tires are in optimal condition with precise alignment services at Marv's Hometown Tire & Auto. Properly aligned tires not only extend their lifespan but also enhance your vehicle's handling by preventing it from "pulling" to one side. Our certified tire specialists employ state-of-the-art equipment to meticulously inspect your tires for signs of uneven wear, cracking, or slow leaks.
Wheel alignment, a fundamental aspect of regular car maintenance, entails the precise adjustment of wheel angles to align with the manufacturer's specifications. This process ensures that your suspension and steering systems operate at optimal angles, ultimately reducing tire wear. Alignment is a complex task and our skilled experts who excel in this field can guarantee precision and quality.
How long does a full alignment take?
Wheel alignments typically take one hour for both two-wheel and four-wheel drive vehicles. However, excessive wear and tear on suspension components like bushings, track rods, or the system itself can require replacements, extending the service time.
What happens if you wait too long for an alignment?
Tire alignment is crucial for maintaining optimal tire performance and lifespan. Even slight misalignments, undetectable to the naked eye but measurable in tenths of degrees or hundredths of inches, can lead to premature and uneven wear. As time passes, this wear becomes more pronounced, impacting both safety and fuel efficiency. To avoid these issues, regular alignment checks every 6,000 miles are recommended.
What is checked during an alignment?
Three crucial aspects are assessed during a tire alignment inspection: camber, toe, and caster. Camber refers to the angle formed by the vertical axis of the tire and a line perpendicular to the road surface, as viewed from the front. When the top of the tire tilts inwards, creating an "X" shape with the wheels, it's considered negative camber. This can increase wear on the tire's inner edge through increased friction.
Do I need an alignment after replacing tires?
The answer is yes! A proper wheel alignment ensures precise angles between wheels and the road, maximizing tire life, enhancing handling, and distributing wear evenly across the tread. This translates to better fuel efficiency, safer driving, and a more enjoyable ride.

What People Say About Us
I cannot say enough amazing things about the staff and service that we received at Marv's! My son is there for college and needed some work done on his Jeep. The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable from very far away. I highly recommend Marv's!
They keep my old beat up car running, I can afford their rates, they've always gotten it turned around in time so I've never missed work, and they stood behind their warranty when I needed an adjustment.
They are like family takes great care of me. Referred many family and friends who are taken very well care of. I can be out and talk about cars and I meet a stranger who recommends Marvs to me and I smile because all my vehicles there.
I have a hard time believing some of these one-star ratings are talking about the same place that I'm thinking of. Marv's is FANTASTIC and full of great people who want to do anything they can to please the customer. Sometimes they even vacuum or wash my car for free if they have a few minutes of time on their hands (which is rare)! I love this place and have referred tens of hundreds of people to them!
Incredible service, work and integrity at Marv's !!! They made my 03 Windstar drive like it's brand new again!! Laura is a true gem! I appreciate her knowledge and experience. She explains exactly what is going on with a vehicle and in terms a person can understand. Keep up the GREAT WORK!!!!
