How Often Should You Have Your Wheels Aligned?

Wheel alignment is an important part of car servicing and the process involves checking and adjusting your car wheels angles. Your car wheel angles change over time as a result of worn suspension, a shifted subframe, hitting potholes, an accident, and just general wear and tear of driving everyday. Also, if you have any steering or suspension components replaced, or you lower or raise your suspension, you need to check the wheel alignment.

Symptoms of Bad Wheel Alignment:

  • The car pulls to one side when you are driving on a level or straight road.
  • Uneven tire wear.
  • Your tires are screeching when you are turning.
  • The car is not stable on the road and moves from one side to the other.
  • When driving straight, the steering is off center.

The above symptoms are what you will notice to know your vehicle needs wheels alignment. It’s important you have your alignment checked as soon as possible to avoid uneven tire wear and potentially dangerous driving conditions.
