Imagine trying to run a race wearing shoes that don’t fit, are worn out, or on the wrong feet. It’s the same as driving with wheels that are not properly aligned. If your car’s alignment is off, driving not only becomes more expensive but can also be hazardous. 

Driving with the wheels out of alignment can wear out your tires faster than normal and wear the tread unevenly. Uneven tire wear can lead to a blowout or make you lose traction in an emergency.

A misalignment can wear out tires as much as if someone drags your car sideways 20 feet for every mile driven! This added drag will cost you more in gas mileage too. A bad wheel alignment can also be dangerous because it may cause your car to pull or drift out of your lane or hydroplane on wet pavement.

It doesn’t take a collision to damage or misalign your wheels. Hitting a curb, running over a pothole, or even replacing suspension or steering parts can damage your alignment as much as a major accident. If you have steering problems or see uneven tread wear, have your wheel alignment checked as soon as you can.

So what are some benefits of driving with the proper alignment? It will. . .

  • save you gas,
  • make your tires last longer, and
  • improve the handling of your vehicle.

Your mechanic should road test your vehicle both before and after performing the alignment service. Before the service is to find out what’s wrong—after the service is to ensure that your vehicle is correctly aligned, meaning it doesn’t pull to one side and that your steering wheel is straight.

Have your alignment checked about every 6,000 miles, with every other oil change, or at the first sign of uneven tire wear. It is far less costly to pay for a wheel alignment service than to buy a new set of tires!
