Proper Wheel Alignment Keeps You Safe and Saves You Money

Wheel Alignment As we try to avoid the many potholes that have recently appeared on our roads, it is important to pay attention to your vehicle’s wheel alignment.

Every jolt to your suspension alters your vehicle’s alignment.  This can impact your vehicle’s safety and cause your tires to wear out prematurely.

Wheel alignment plays a critical role in the performance of your vehicle.  Here are three reasons why:

Tire life. When your vehicle’s suspension system is out of alignment, it will lead to uneven tire wear. This reduces the tire’s usable life. With regular alignment checks your tires will last longer and save you money.

Safety. Misalignment can cause your vehicle to pull right or left, or have you feel vibrations typically in the steering wheel.  This undermines the control and handling of your vehicle.

Fuel Efficiency. When you automobile isn’t aligned correctly it has to work a little harder. This reduces your car’s fuel efficiency.

How can I tell if my tires need aligning?

Look for these indications to see if it is time for an alignment check.

  • Your vehicle pulls to one side.
  • Your front end shimmies/vibrates after hitting a bump.
  • Your steering wheel no longer lines up straight.
  • Your front tires show signs of uneven wear.

For more details on the effects of misalignment view the video on this page and go to Alignments.

Proper alignments require sophisticated equipment to abide by the manufacturers’ preferred specifications and provide an exact wheel alignment.  This requires a certified technician.
