Wheel alignment issues can negatively impact essential vehicle components, such as your steering system, braking system, tires, and suspension, and can even hurt fuel economy. A wheel alignment service corrects misaligned angles by adjusting your car’s steering and suspension, keeping your car from pulling to the left or right while driving.
Contact McCullough NAPA to schedule a wheel alignment in Fair Oaks, Georgia, and ask about our scheduled maintenance plans.

How To Tell If You Need A Wheel Alignment
It’s expected that suspension and steering components will wear down over time. However, allowing them to go without repair can lead to dangerous and costly alignment issues. Outside of everyday wear, wheel alignment problems can result from hitting a pothole, running over a curb, or being involved in a collision.
When trying to drive in a straight line, you can tell your car needs a wheel alignment if it pulls left or right on its own. Similarly, you may need a wheel alignment if your steering wheel is off-center, meaning you hold it in a turn position to drive straight. Lastly, you can tell if your car needs a wheel alignment by inspecting your tires and comparing the amount of wear between the outside and inside. If there is more wear on the outside than on the inside, you likely need a wheel alignment. This is because the outside of your tires will wear down faster as you constantly turn your vehicle back toward the center as it pulls.
Benefits of Wheel Alignment Service
Misaligned wheels and suspension can lead to all-around decreased vehicle performance. Often, having the proper alignment and suspension repairs made at the recommended service time is more cost-effective than repairing damages caused by driving with misaligned wheels. That is because the alignment system works with so many other components, and forgoing repairs can cause those other components to break down.
We recommend having your car’s wheel alignment inspected every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. Having your wheels in the correct alignment increases overall performance, makes for a smoother ride, extends the life of your tires, and gets more miles out of every gallon.

Always extremely professional. Willing to work with customers. Sadly, car repair is expensive but they have worked with me. Graham has been extremely helpful with issues my daughter was having with her car while we were at another mechanic in the area. We asked on Nextdoor for recommendations and McCullough came up numerous times!

I own and automotive repair business in Jacksonville, but my wife lives in Atlanta and needed tires for her car, so I know good service and fair pricing in this industry. I chose McCullough because of their good reviews and they did not disappoint. They were very professional and took good care of my wife. I would highly recommend them and will continue to use them for her service needs.

This has to be the best shop in town! When I got my car fixed the last time, It drove live new. I've never been so happy to get my car fixed in my life. They were very friendly and honest. This will be my go to place from now on. Not too far from my house which is a huge plus but even if it were, I'd be game to making the trip. Thanks for being honest and giving great service!

Eric has been my service manager for years. He is always professional and easy to deal with. He goes out of his way to take care of your needs and makes accommodations to the customer when needed. They will ferry me and my car to and from their shop (I live within blocks) and I appreciate that very much. Everyone at McCullough is nice, friendly and helpful.

Extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and professional people. Would definitely go here again if I was in the area and needed them!

This place has fantastic service times and an extremely knowledgeable staff. First time I went was for an emergency tire change and it went even more smoothly than I would have ever thought possible. Definitely recommend for any/all vehicle maintenance.

They really work with you to do what is necessary to make your car safe and not hit your wallet too hard! I can say that I trust Eric and his team with our cars.

I had a check engine light on Saturday afternoon, ended up being an engine coil pack needing to be replaced. It was obviously super busy and I knew I would need to leave it until Monday to get looked at. Staff was very informative and communication was excellent. Got it looked at Monday and ordered necessary part to come in the next day. Went ahead and did the spark plugs as well since I was nearing 60k miles. Picked it up after lunch with no issues. Seems like they do really well with the small space provided and very busy area right off 285

I received great service from this location! I called them about replacing a serpentine belt and they got it done for me the very next morning. It was quick, and cheaper than some other places that I had called for the same service. Eric and his team did a great job, and they were very nice! I will definitely return for any other auto repair I may need in the future.

Have been going to McCollough’s for decades! Once I found them, I knew they were honest and professional. Not often one can say that about an auto repair place. They have helped me keep my older vehicles safely on the road for longer than I could imagine. I have always been treated with respect, no matter how large or small the issue, which is excellent and reassuring for an older woman.Highly recommend them!

I know for me one hard thing about choosing a mechanic is brushing off all previous notions I have about mechanics Potentially not treating my car how they would treat their own car. This place has done more than exceed my expectations. I got a phone call for every update, I got a thorough description of what was to be done and what was wrong, not only that, but where the dealership said it would take them two weeks to fix my car, these guys did it in less than 24 hours. I have never been happier to spend $300 in my life. Anything I need in the future, you can be sure I’ll bring it here.

I may have written one other recommendation in my of 50 years, but after doing business with Eric McCullough for 35 of those years it is time to write another one. He maintained and serviced my auto's, my wife, kids and employees for 32 of those 35 years. He has stood behind the work on everything he and his employees have done. He operates his business with great honesty and integrity. I highly recommend doing business. with McCullough

Out of town for work and needed an alternator changed immediately and McCullough's was the only place that said they could and would do it! Reasonably Priced and Great Customer Service! Will definitely be back if ever in the area.

Great customer service! Eric and team did an awesome job coordinating their busy schedule with the schedule of my girlfriend and myself so that we would have a car during the work week and then trade off cars when the other was ready. They are extremely friendly and it felt like they had us as the customer in mind. Highly recommend!

WOW!! An amazing experience! Traveled here from Kansas to apartment shop for my daughter who is relocating and my husband was unable to join A part was dragging under the car so we popped in to see if they could help. They were so kind and helpful. Restored my faith in this world. Good people do exist!!

We have been depending on McCullough's at least since 1997, when we purchased a home only a few blocks away, walking distance really. Had our emissions test a few days ago and want to acknowledge Jack, who completed the tests quickly. I asked him to determine why the backup camera was not in the proper position. It took a bit of time and ingenuity to get everything right. Thanks Jack, for the excellent service.

Quick and excellent service. I was turned away at my regular mechanic because he said he didn’t know how to do a transmission fluid change. This was my first time ever going to McCullough auto care, and I was very happy with my service. They were able to see me immediately and were patient with me considering the circumstances. Eric was great, and even matched the prices of another mechanic down the road. I will be back! Would recommend!
November 19, 2019
I found my new home for car repair. Eric was very nice and honest. We definitely be coming back! Thank you for the excellent customer service.
October 21, 2021
Wow! I am so impressed with the service I received. Having moved here from Nashville I was nervous about finding a mechanic! These guys are BUSY but they treat every customer like their priority. I got my car repaired within two days on a weekend! Prices can’t be beat and I was getting phone calls with detailed status updates. Amazing service. Really compassionate. Please doing business! I thought I was going to have to spend thousands fixing the plate that was dragging under my car but I got it fixed for under $200! Thank you!!!

My parents and I have been taking our cars there since the beginning. Great, hardworking guys. The only mom and pop shop left in Sandy Springs.

Fantastic service every time I go! The people here are friendly and knowledgeable and actually try to help you pay the lowest cost for your repairs! This is THE place to go for auto repairs 100%!

This is the best place you could possibly go to take care of your car! My family and I have been going here for over 15 years and we recommend them to everyone. Eric, Bryan, and Graham are the most trustworthy guys and truly care about their customers. We all love them and are so thankful we found them!!
