Your vehicle’s wheels can be misaligned from normal wear-and-tear. As you add miles to your car, its wheels will gradually become out of line. It takes sophisticated wheel alignment equipment to make sure you’re driving as straight as can be.

If you allow your tires to go too long without alignment service, your tire tread will wear unevenly. This can only be corrected by an expert wheel alignment. It becomes quite costly when you find yourself replacing your tires after only half the amount of its expected use. Wheel alignments should be addressed as soon as you notice a problem. The first indication is usually a slight pulling to the right or left when driving. Vehicles will want to veer in one direction, and drivers may even unconsciously begin to compensate for this. This will only delay service and sacrifice your tire’s condition.
Sometimes, your vehicle will experience a minor collision with a pothole or a curb. The impact may seem harmless enough because it doesn’t prevent you from continuing to drive. What often happens is your vehicle’s alignment is slightly off, and then progressively gets worse over time. It’s a good idea to have your vehicle’s alignment checked after experiencing a significant impact. The chances are your wheels are misaligned, even if you can’t tell right away. If you actually can tell right away, the alignment service is even more urgent because there could be serious damage.
