The factory aligned the wheels to the exact alignment when your car was made. This alignment can wear down over time and cause your wheels to become out of alignment. A caring car owner should perform wheel alignments every other month. This is especially important for the car that you have. It will prolong its life and help to maintain its value.
An excellent vehicle owner will “align” their maintenance with other activities such as changing your fluids or getting an oil change. You can get an alignment done at your oil change place. However, if you have a more expensive vehicle, you will need to trust us or a dealer to do this job regularly.
No worries if you’re not a pro at maintenance. You can spot signs that your vehicle needs to be aligned. Here are some of the most obvious signs that your vehicle may need an alignment.
Your steering wheel may vibrate or jar when your wheels are not in alignment. The problem will be visible on the upper half the wheel if the front tires are at fault. If the problem is in the back tires, then the symptoms will be seen on the lower half of your wheel. This can be very annoying and becomes more severe as you drive faster. It becomes dangerous and difficult to drive if you exceed 60 mph. This is a very obvious problem that warrants a quick visit to Wheel Identity.
Vehicle Drifting And Pulling?
If you drive down a straight, level road with misaligned tires, you will notice that your wheels may pull to one side or the other, even though they appear straight. This is an indication that your wheels are out of alignment. The off-balance wheels don’t have the right alignment to drive straight, so they won’t. This can lead to more serious problems than wheel shaking. If you drive on narrow roads with lots of traffic, you could end up in the path of opposing traffic. Regular maintenance will save you money and prevent costly repairs.
