Tire and wheel alignment should be one of your top priorities regarding car care. In fact, we recommend checking and correcting your alignment annually or bi-annually. When your wheels are properly aligned, your wheels will point straight and meet the road at the right angles. Below are all the reasons why you should keep up with your wheel alignments:
Improved Fuel Efficiency
Taking care of your wheel alignment ensures torque and power are distributed evenly and properly to all tires whether you’re driving straight or making turns. As a result, you will boost your fuel efficiency with regular wheel alignments.
Longer Life of Tires
Wheel alignments will ensure your vehicle’s tires wear evenly as they are able to make proper contact with the road. This can help extend your tires’ life and save you money in the long run.
Better Handling/Increased Safety
With proper wheel alignment, you will see improvements in your vehicle’s steerability. Your automobile is less likely to veer and run out of control. Whereas poor alignment can harm your brake parts, suspension parts, and steering parts, which can put your vehicle at a higher risk of an accident.
Saves Repair Costs
Overall, proper tire maintenance and alignment checks will prevent you from costly repairs (of the brake, steering, or suspension systems) and frequent tire purchases. That means more money in your pockets in the long run.
