Tire Safety Tuesday / Importance of Proper Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignment and balancing are important for safety and maximum tread wear from your tires. Inspect your tires at least once a month for signs of uneven wear or damage (i.e. cuts, cracks, splits, penetrations, bulges, and impacts.)


When should I bring my vehicle in for a wheel alignment?


Most manufacturers recommend getting a four-wheel alignment at least once a year. Other times you may need a front-end or four-wheel alignment include:

  • After purchasing a set of new tires

  • After a collision, accident, or hitting a large pothole

  • When replacing suspension or steering parts during a Steering & Suspension Repair Service

  • If you feel your vehicle pulling to one side when driving on a straight, smooth road

  • If your steering feels unstable or you feel a vibration

  • If your steering feels too loose or shows signs of straying or wandering on the road

  • If your tires are wearing unevenly or squealing on turns

Make sure to check your owner’s manual for your manufacturer’s recommendation.
