How to Tell If Your Car or Truck Needs a Tire Alignment
If you are wondering whether your car needs a wheel alignment, take a look at your tires. Are they wearing unevenly? Do you see more tread wear on the outside edges of your tires? If you observe either of these, it’s a good indicator that your car is out of alignment. A couple of other seat-of-the-pants indicators that a tire alignment is needed would be if your car tends to drift or pull to the side when you are driving straight, or if you are driving straight and your steering wheel is slightly off center.
Your truck or auto can go out of alignment for various reasons. Everyday, normal driving can cause misalignment through worn parts or weakened springs or struts. Or, a small accident, potholes, or curb bumps/hits can disrupt your suspension, knocking some of the highly calibrated components off kilter, causing your wheels to sit at improper angles. A tire alignment restores these angles to their correct specifications, allowing your wheels to sit straight and your vehicle to drive straight.
Benefits of Getting a Tire Alignment
The most cost-effective benefit of a wheel alignment is less tire wear. With tires costing $100-$300 each, an alignment for $80 – $135 can be a worthwhile part of your vehicle’s regular car maintenance program. Secondary benefits of a tire alignment include better fuel mileage through reduced rolling resistance, and the added safety of knowing your car will go in the direction you point it.
