How To Know If Your Vehicle Is Out Of Alignment
There are five key ways to know if your vehicle is not in alignment. They are:
- Uneven/excessive tire wear
- Feeling of wandering/looseness
- Steering wheel moves to right or left
- Steering wheel shimmies or vibrates
- Steering wheels doesn’t center even when car is moving straight
4 Benefits Of A Properly Aligned Vehicle
There are four benefits to having a vehicle that’s properly aligned
- Decreased Tire Wear
When your vehicle is out of alignment, it can result in premature wear on the tire. With a properly aligned vehicle, you can get thousands of miles more from your tires.
- Improved Gas Mileage
With a decrease in rolling resistance, you get better gas mileage. And, this decrease in rolling resistance happens when you have a complete alignment in all four wheels and the right amount of inflation.
- Better Handling
Do you notice your vehicle pulling to one side? Do you notice a vibration in the steering wheel? Do you find yourself always moving the wheel to ensure the vehicle stays straight? A total alignment will correct these handling issues. On top of that, road shock is greatly reduced when the parts of the system are properly aligned.
- Safer Driving
Our alignment process will also include an inspection of the suspension system, which means we’ll find worn parts before they become a costly issue.
