If one of your tires has an imperfection or problem in the rubber, then it can throw the balance off on your vehicle, which makes it seem like the steering is misaligned, due to the fact that one section of the tire will be heavier than the rest. For this reason, we offer wheel balancing services, where we use a computer to identify which wheel needs to be balanced, and then use weights to counterbalance the heavy spots in the tire.
When Do You Need an Alignment?
A good rule of thumb is to get your alignment checked every 6 months or 6000 miles. However, many manufacturers also recommend that you get it checked whenever you take your vehicle in for an oil change. Of course, if you are recognizing that your vehicle’s steering is misaligned, then be sure to take it in, right away.
Here’s some ways to tell if your vehicle needs an alignment:
- Your steering pulls left or right.
- The tires of your vehicle wear down unevenly.
- Your tires squeal when driving.
- Your steering wheel is crooked when you drive straight.
