Have you seen little children wearing their shoes on the wrong feet? It looks awkward and uncomfortable because their toes are pointing in the wrong direction! This is comparable to driving with wheels that are not properly aligned. Instead of the wheels of your car pointing in the same direction as the steering wheel, they are pointing in another direction.

What kind of problems will you notice if your car is out of alignment?

  • Tires will wear more unevenly and faster than normal.
  • Decreased fuel economy
  • Easier to lose control of your car, especially in wet conditions.

Most mechanics recommend having the alignment checked about every 6,000 miles (or every other oil change depending on your service interval). But because there is no set schedule for car alignment service, how often wheel alignment should be done depends on how and where you drive. Simply hitting a curb or driving through a pothole can throw off your car alignment as much as an auto accident will do.

Having your car alignment checked and corrected on a regular basis has several benefits, such as:

  • Maintains your car’s handling and safety,
  • Improves fuel economy,
  • Prevents damage to other vehicle components (such as shocks and axles), plus
  • Extends the life of your tires.

Remember: Keep checking the tread on your tires. When you first notice uneven tire wear, schedule a car alignment service. Compared to the cost of new tires or repairing damage to the suspension system, the cost of a car alignment service is relatively inexpensive.
