Your Vehicle’s Wheel Alignment Is Important
Your steering wheel rests straight up and your car drives ahead without pulling to the left or right. You can easily control your vehicle’s direction with a simple touch of the steering wheel. When driving your car happens this smoothly, it means your wheel alignment is correct.
Your vehicle’s wheel alignment uses a set of angles and measurements from the manufacturer, known as toe, camber and caster. All of these make your vehicle easy to control. When your wheel alignment is accurate, your tires will last as long as possible, and your suspension components will endure the least amount of stress.
Timely Wheel Alignment Will Serve You Well
Your wheel alignment is an adjustment that can be affected by a handful of circumstances. If you can’t avoid a big pothole, the impact can bend a part or force an alignment angle to move. If you hit a curb, the same thing can happen. If you have a loose or worn suspension or steering part— such as a tie rod end or broken coil spring— your wheel alignment will become inaccurate.
When your wheel alignment is incorrect, this puts strain on your steering and suspension, exacerbating the problem and often causing premature wear on those parts. Incorrect toe and camber cause excessive wear on your tires, cutting tens of thousands of miles of life from your tread in no time. Improper caster can make your vehicle hard to steer. In all situations, improper wheel alignment can make your car difficult and even dangerous to control.
At the first sign of wheel alignment issues– such as a steering pull either left or right, or abnormal tire wear— your wheel alignment should be checked. A routine wheel alignment can be an annual part of your regular maintenance to keep your car operating as smoothly as possible.
