Wheel Alignment

People often just compensate for misaligned wheels by correcting the steering wheel as they drive. Driving your vehicle shouldn’t involve that kind of effort, however, and aside from the additional work you’re performing to keep your car straight, it also affects other aspects of performance.

Trying to stop, especially on wet pavement, in a vehicle with misaligned tires creates a situation where you don’t have as good of control of your vehicle as you should. You may also think that your vehicle should be getting better gas mileage. You’re most likely correct if the wheels are out of alignment. It can add to visits to the gas pump. The additional and uneven wear on your vehicle’s tires will cause them to need replacement more often than is normal.

Alignment checks can usually be done as part of your annual routine maintenance. If you’ve recently hit a pothole or curb and noticed a difference in handling, it’s a good idea to get it checked.
