Having your vehicle aligned regularly is crucial for stopping, overall handling, and for ensuring that your ride is both safe and smooth. A misaligned vehicle can cause uneven tire wear, reduce fuel economy, and result in additional strain on your suspension and steering components. Book your next alignment at Car Lane Auto. We offer computerized two and four-wheel alignments.
What is a Wheel Alignment?
A wheel alignment refers to an adjustment to your vehicle’s suspension. This is the mechanism that connects your vehicle to your wheels. A wheel alignment does not adjust the wheels or tires themselves but adjusts the angles of the tires to ensure your car is not pulling you into the centre or the edge of the road.
Signs That Your Car Needs a Wheel Alignment
There are some signs to permit you to recognize that your car needs a wheel alignment. If you are unsure whether your car needs to go to a mechanic for a wheel alignment, ask yourself the following questions:
Is your car pulling to the left or right?
Is your guidance wheel off centre whilst using straight?
Do your tires have choppy tread wear?
Is your guidance wheel vibrating excessively?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, you should book an appointment for a wheel alignment as quickly as possible.
