Experienced drivers understand why it’s important to maintain the correct wheel alignment on their vehicles. They know that they will experience better traction and grip on the road in most conditions, while also helping the tread on their tires to wear evenly at a normal rate. It also means that all four tires are moving at the same speed and pointed in the same direction as the steering wheel.

So what causes car alignment problems? The situations listed below are common situations for most drivers, any of them can cause your car to lose its wheel alignment:

  1. Poor road conditions.  Driving over rough terrain, roads filled with potholes and ruts, running over a curb, going too fast over a speed bump, or hitting other obstacles in the road.
  2. Worn out suspension components. As shocks (or struts) become worn and loose, your car is no longer stable but may bounce excessively when you hit bumps in the road.
  3. Vehicle modifications. After-market modifications to vehicles, such as lifting the height or adjusting the suspension, make a wheel alignment service necessary.
  4. New Tires.  Installing new tires may require a different alignment than your old tires.
  5. Auto Accident. Whether a minor fender-bender or a major crash, the wheel alignment can be thrown off.

Here is why it is so important to maintain the correct wheel alignment:

  • Your tires will last longer, wearing more evenly all around,
  • Increase in fuel economy help save money at the pump,
  • Damage to shocks (or struts) and car axles is unlikely, and
  • Your ride will be more comfortable and smooth.

A word to the wise:  Have the wheel alignment checked about six to 12 months—more often if you have been driving consistently on bumpy roads if the tire tread is wearing unevenly, if the rubber is looking worn, or if you are struggling with the steering and control of your vehicle.
