Wheel alignment is an important part of routine car maintenance. When your vehicle’s wheels are properly aligned, you will travel straight and true. Maintaining proper wheel alignment offers a number of benefits, including the following:

  • Reduces fuel usage and emissions
  • Increases the life of your tires (saves you from buying new ones)
  • Increases the safety of your vehicle
  • Eliminates potential damage to vehicle’s suspension

Is it Time for Wheel Alignment?

  • Uneven Tread Wear. Uneven tread wear can occur due to issues such as misalignment, improper tire inflation, or suspension problems. It can lead to handling issues and compromise the overall performance of the tires.
  • Overinflation. Underinflated tires can result in increased rolling resistance, reduced fuel efficiency, and uneven tread wear. It also makes the tires more susceptible to damage and can cause overheating.
  • Vibration or Wobbling. Vibrations or wobbling while driving can indicate issues such as wheel imbalance, misalignment, or problems with the tire itself. Addressing these issues promptly is important for safety and comfort.
  • Vehicle Pulling or Drifting. Uneven tire tread, misalignment, or imbalanced tires, can cause pulling or drifting.
  • Crooked Steering. Having to turn your wheel to drive straight is a problem – it is also a major sign your alignment needs corrected.
  • Noisy, Squealing Tires. It might sound cool in Fast 5, but it isn’t normal or healthy for your car.
