Why You Should Align Your Wheels
Wheel alignments may seem unnecessary if you aren’t aware of the effects it may have on your car… and your wallet! Regular wheel alignments are crucial for extending your tire life to the max. As you drive around from day to day, the bumps and holes you drive over slowly knock your wheels out of line. What does this mean exactly? It means that the surface area of your tires is not being worn evenly and over time, it can prematurely wear out. This can be spotted by checking your tread, and you can tell immediately if your tires need to be aligned if you notice a shimmying or shaking feeling while driving at certain speeds. Some wheels can be so misaligned that you can actually watch them in action and see that they are looking a little crooked. A tire blowout, or needing to replace all 4 of your tires is much more expensive (and dangerous) than heading to the shop for a quick wheel alignment. We recommend getting your wheels aligned regularly. How often you need this service will depend on what you use your vehicle for, where you drive, and of course what type of vehicle you have. To further your tire life other than aligning them, you should also make sure your tires are at the correct pressure and that you are having them rotated regularly to ensure even wear.
