Important Questions about Wheel Alignment


Q: How important is wheel alignment?

A: Think of it this way. Research indicates that the average vehicle is driven about 12,000 miles per year. A car with a toe angle adjustment of 0.34 degrees (only 0.17 inches) out of specification will drag the tires sideways for more that 68 miles by the end of the year!


Q: What are the "symptoms" of a vehicle with incorrect alignment?

A :Have your vehicle checked if you notice:

  • Excessive or uneven tire wear.

  • The vehicle pulls to the left or right.

  • Feeling of looseness or wandering.

  • Steering wheel vibration or shimmy.

  • Steering wheel is not centered when the vehicle is moving straight ahead.


Q: How often should I have my vehicle aligned?

A: Follow the vehicle manufacturer's recommendation noted in your owner's manual. As a general rule, have your wheel alignment checked every 10,000 miles or at lease once a year.
