When your car rolls off the assembly line, the wheels have been aligned, tested, adjusted and ultimately verified. But as you may have already experienced if you’ve owned a car very long, wheels lose their alignment. This means that the tires on your vehicle are not pointing in the same direction as the steering wheel. When this happens, it not only shortens the life of your tires by thousands of miles, it compromises the safety of the your vehicle by affecting crucial steering and suspension parts.

There are various reasons that wheels lose their alignment, most of which have to do with road conditions. Poorly maintained roads, hitting potholes, going too fast over speed bumps, running over curbs, or having an accident no matter how minor, can all affect your car’s wheel alignment. You may find yourself fighting the steering wheel as you try to drive your car straight down the road! Inexperienced drivers may not be aware of how damaging misalignment can be. It not only impacts the safety of your vehicle, but it also adds excessive wear to your tires, suspension system, and steering system.

Are you wondering when should you get a front end alignment? Call the wheel alignment specialists at Clausen Automotive for their expert advice.
