Benefits of Wheel Alignment
When your wheels are properly aligned, it puts you in more control behind the wheel. We often hear the question, “Why should I get my wheels aligned?” The truth is, there are many benefits to driving a vehicle with properly aligned wheels. These benefits include:
- Increased safety due to better handling
- Improved fuel efficiency and performance
- A longer lifespan for your tires
- Reduces the chance of expensive vehicle repairs due to poor alignment
At Eddie’s, we want you to always be able to get the most out of your vehicle and that includes proper tire alignment.
When to Have Your Wheels Aligned
Our recommendation is every two years. It is possible for your wheels to become misaligned before the two-year benchmark. Hitting a pothole or a curb can misalign your wheels. We advise our customers to look out for the signs that it is time to schedule an alignment. These include:
- Your vehicle is pulling to the side
- Your steering wheel is off-center or crooked
- The steering wheel vibrates or shakes
- Your tires have uneven or rapid tread wear
In addition to these issues, it’s also a good idea to have your wheels aligned any time you have new tires installed.
