What is a Wheel Alignment?

A wheel alignment is a service that can be done to align all wheels of a vehicle with each other. This prevents, or repairs, one or more wheels skewed away from the direction of travel. In short, it ensures that all wheels are pointing in the same direction.

Why is a wheel alignment necessary?

Vehicles come from the factory with wheels aligned, but they can come out alignment over time. If you have hit a pothole or curb, your wheels may have come out of alignment.

Well-aligned wheels help your vehicle travel in the same direction that the steering wheel is pointed, which aids in everyone's safety.

Additionally, if your wheels are out of alignment, tires and other steering components will wear faster and require more frequent replacement.

When should I get a wheel alignment?

You should consider having a wheel alignment completed when replacing wheels and tires to ensure that you get the most longevity out of your new tires. Your service advisor will be able to advise you if this is necessary following an alignment inspection.

If your vehicle is pulling to one side, does not travel in the direction that the steering wheel is pointed, or the steering is excessively loose, you should have your vehicle serviced immediately for your safety.

Additionally, if you are noticing excessive, uneven wear to your tires, you should consider a wheel alignment.
