Tire alignment or wheel alignment is a special type of service that will help your car wheels perform properly and tires to last longer. It can also help improve the handling of your car when it keeps pulling in one direction or vibrating strangely on the road.
How do you know your car needs a wheel alignment service?
There are a few ways you’ll know that you need wheel alignment service:
- Your tires are worn unevenly
- Vehicle keeps pulling to the left or right without any reason
- Your steering wheel is tilted to one side
- There is vibration in the steering wheel
Even if you don’t notice any of these issues, it is a good idea to check your wheel alignment every year or two. This will help prevent uneven wear on tires and save you some money on having to replace your tires.
Wheel alignment service is a simple procedure but it requires a specific tool that can determine the type and extent of misalignment.
During the service the mechanic will at first determine the cause of misalignment – it can come from one of three things: the camber, toe or caster of the wheel. Once it is known, where the issue comes from, the mechanic can regulate either of the three and fix the misalignment.
