Keeping your vehicle in optimum condition is good for the environment and your pocket. Many drivers are good at getting their scheduled oil changes, but others overlook something just as important, even when confronted by clear performance evidence. Getting periodic wheel alignments is a straightforward process and one that's surprisingly affordable, considering the value it brings to a vehicle's smooth operation. Rather than repeatedly replacing worn tyres, an alignment may be a better optionAlignment Considerations
When a vehicle's tyres are out of alignment, the tyres wear more and unevenly, control suffers and fuel economy is reduced. Tyres are often forced out of alignment after accidentally striking curbs, parking blocks, road debris and potholes. Once the tyre is out of alignment, its orientation to the center-line of the vehicle is off-center. This may not always be visible to the eye, but the effects on driving will be unavoidable.
Although not always visible, indicators can show an alignment is necessary. Excessive tyre wear is the major visible proof of need, but it can also be detected if the vehicle pulls to the left or right, has pronounced vibration or shimmy, or if the steering wheel is not centered when moving straight ahead. Most manufacturers suggest an alignment at 10,000 miles.
