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.

Wheel Alignment Willoughby Hills OH

Can you believe it? If all your wheels are aligned and pointed in the same direction, did you know that your car will actually drive better? Sarcasm aside, that’s what a wheel alignment does – brings your car’s wheel into perfect alignment with one another and the road.

Misaligned wheels may not be something that gets noticed right away, but over time, you’ll start to see it become a problem in the form of rapidly and unevenly worn tires. That happens because as the car pulls to one side or the other, you are constantly having to turn the vehicle to keep it on the straight and narrow. All this turning places undue stress on the outside of the tire, wearing it down in a fraction of the time it would have taken otherwise.

Most often, we see cars’ wheels being thrown out of alignment not by accidents, but by regular driving. You may have hit a pothole or jumped a curb and – boom – before you know it, your wheels are misaligned. So even the very best drivers may have misaligned wheels, and there is no shame in it. We are here to help.

If you bring your car to Willoughby Hills Auto Repair for a wheel alignment, we will make sure each wheel is perfectly in line with the others, according to your manufacturer’s specifications. While we align your wheels, we will also do spot checks of your steering and suspension systems, as well as your tires for excessive or uneven wear patterns. We won’t take your car of the lifts until every piece is inspected and signed off on.
