Why Is Wheel Alignment & Tire Rotation So Important?
Your car’s manufacturer has carefully laid out the exact specs and guidelines that serve as a map to having your wheels perfectly aligned with the road and each other, and the experts at Willoughby Hills Auto Repair want to see everyone’s car aligned to those exact specifications.
If your wheels are aligned improperly, your car’s tires will wear unevenly, your gas mileage may suffer, and your car may pull to one side or the other while driving. Improperly aligned wheels can also place extra stress on your suspension system, which can lead to bigger problems and most expensive repairs.
With misaligned wheels, you may encounter some steering problems. These might include things like an off-center steering wheel or the car pulling to one side or the other while you drive. You might also notice your car has trouble staying straight when you hit a bump or pothole.
With misaligned wheels, you’ll also encounter uneven tire wear, which can lead to the need to replace tires more frequently, wear on your wheels, and tread damage. Misaligned wheels can also lead to short- and long-term suspension problems, and these can be expensive to repair.
When you have new tires or wheels put on, or when you’ve been in an accident (or even just hit a pothole), you’ll want to have your car’s wheel alignment checked. Even a peace of mind check-up can prevent countless problems down the line.
