How do vehicles lose their wheel alignment?
It doesn’t take much to knock your wheels out of alignment, that’s an unfortunate reality. You’ll be familiar with most of the causes, but what you probably didn’t think was that each one could severely impact your vehicle’s alignment.
Wheel alignment can be thrown off by:
- Pot holes, even a relatively low speeds
- Hitting curbs
- Bumping into concrete parking stalls
- Normal wear and tear
Keep in mind that alignment angles are measured in hundredths of inches. Over time, a slight misalignment can cause a lot of uneven or premature tire wear.
Put your next alignment in the hands of an alignment pro and call us today.
What happens if I don’t get my wheels aligned?
Ultimately you will end up wasting a lot of money on tires because, with out proper alignment, tires wear down a lot faster. Your vehicle will probably not handle as well as it should and, in the most extreme cases, you could have a pretty difficult time maintaining control - especially in bad weather. All this bad news but fortunately it is easily preventable by having your wheels aligned when needed.
