What causes wheels to become misaligned?
Accident impact, even a small fender bender, is one cause of wheel misalignment. Wheel alignment can be disrupted by hitting a curb, a pothole or taking on a speed bump at too high a speed. The alignment of your wheels is always changing. Bumpy roads and wear and tear in steering and suspension systems are further contributing factors. These changes often go unnoticed because they are small and develop slowly over time. It is not uncommon for wheels to become misaligned within 12 to 18 months.
What are the benefits of proper wheel alignment?
Maintaining proper wheel alignment is crucial to keeping your car running both efficiently and safely. Poorly aligned wheels cause uneven wear on your tires, which leads to them needing replacement more often. When unchecked, unevenly worn tires can become a safety hazard. Additional benefits of correctly aligned wheels include reduced stress on suspension parts, enhanced vehicle stability, and improved braking conditions.
