Vehicle alignment helps your tires last longer, can help improve gas mileage and provides tighter handling to give you and your passengers a better ride and safer ride. An alignment inspection and service can keep you worry free and your vehicle on the road longer.
Is Your Vehicle Pulling left or right? Your vehicle is Telling You Something
Rough roads, potholes and the occasional smacking of a curb don’t just make for an uncomfortable ride, they can knock your wheels out of alignment. Misaligned wheels can pull your vehicle to one side and cause you to constantly correct your steering. If your vehicle pulls to one side consistently when you apply your brakes, it could be an alignment issue. As regular maintenance you should align your vehicle once a year. Improper alignments can also cause a “shimmy” or vibration in your steering wheel. Wheels that are out of alignment can also cause uneven tire wear and can do severe damage to your tires quickly. Uneven tires wear out more quickly and don’t grip the road properly, especially in bad weather. A vehicle that is out of alignment will cost you time and money.

How Often Should I Check my Vehicle Alignment?
Us, as well as many vehicle manufacturers now recommend Alignments as part of your regular scheduled maintenance, suggesting your alignment be checked at least once per year. This is a quick service that can be done at the same time you get your oil changed and tires rotated. Because alignment issues are often a result of a incident, like falling hard in to a pothole, hitting a curb or debris in the road, this will knock your vehicle out of alignment. You should have your alignment checked.
