Leading the battery of innovative technology available at the new F&E Bacolod-Singcang Goodyear Autocare is Sunshine 3D 360 Degrees Wheel Aligner. This compact and portable digital alignment system can move from one service bay to another and point at any direction with auto adjust laser bar resulting to improved precision – making sure the wheels of your vehicle are at the right angle. Your tires get even tread wear and optimum mileage.
