Does your car need an alignment? How would you know? The easiest way to determine if you might need an alignment is visual inspection of your tire wear. Is there uneven wear – more wear on the outside than inside in many cases?
Several other things may show that you might need an alignment.
1 – Does your steering wheel shake while your driving?
2 – Does your car want to move to one side or the other even while you are trying to drive straight ahead?
3 – Are you driving straight but the steering wheel is not centered?
In addition to these fairly obvious indicators, you should check your vehicle owners manual to see how often the manufacturer recommends getting an alignment. The fact is that wear and tear and normal usage can result in the need for an alignment. Getting this necessary service done will make your car easier to drive and ultimately save you money on tire replacement before it’s normal time.
