You should stay vigilant of your alignment. Check your vehicle alignment to ensure you’re getting the best life and performance out of your tires. You can throw a car out of alignment when you hit a pothole or curb. If you notice irregular tread wear or experience your vehicle pulling to the left or right when you’re trying to stay straight in a lane, you might need a wheel alignment to fix the camber, toe, and caster angles.
There are two different types of wheel alignments that can be performed. Two wheel alignments are for the front tires, while a four wheel alignment is for all four tires of the car. Wheel alignment is a very important element of vehicle upkeep, misaligned tires cause damage to your tires and lead them to wear out prematurely which is inconvenient and sometimes expensive. Keeping up with your wheel alignments will keep your car driving straight and safe and it will save you from needing to replace your new tires prematurely.
Follow these tips and the service intervals listed inside your owner’s manual to guard against major repairs and unexpected failures.
