The front and rear wheels on your vehicle should always be perpendicular to the ground and parallel to the tire beside it. Annual wheel alignments, or at least wheel alignment checks have the potential to save you money in the long run. A wheel alignment can also greatly reduce tire wear, improve fuel mileage, and daily driving conditions.
Left untreated, wheel alignment issues have the potential to turn into steering and suspension issues. Continuing to drive with your wheels out of alignment not only puts stress on your tires, it also puts stress on your vehicle’s suspension components. Wheels out of alignment can also cause uneven tire wear, and choppy or feathered tread patterns. Uneven tread wear can be felt in a vehicle pulling to the right or left, feathered or choppy tires can feel bumpy or noisy when driving.
