As you are driving, have you noticed your vehicle pulling to a specific side or if you take your hand off the steering wheel, it will veer off the road? This could be a sign your wheels need an alignment done or your tires balanced out. While you may have a few questions on what this means, we have taken the time to list out some of the frequently asked questions. Check them out below to learn more about wheel alignment and why it is essential to your vehicle.
The wheels on your vehicle require maintenance just like any other component on your vehicle. If they are not aligned, they will wear out quicker which means costly replacements.
The next thing you should do is make sure your tires are balanced. Here we check to see if they are properly inflated, are in line and correctly mounted to the rim of the vehicle.
One of the best ways to keep track of how often to have your wheels aligned is by doing them as often as you have your oil changed, which is around every 5,000 miles.
