You should have the alignment checked if you are experiencing any of the following:

  1. Excessive or uneven tire wear (provided the tires have been inflated at the proper air pressure)
  2. Steering wheel pulls to the left or right (again, first check air pressure in each tire)
  3. Steering feels loose or the car wanders on the road
  4. If the steering wheel is not centered
  5. If you feel any shaking, vibration, or shimmy when driving
