Wheels are aligned with specific settings, and different models can have different settings. But hitting potholes, curbs or even just the usual bumps you encounter daily on the road can cause your wheels to become unaligned.
Poor wheel alignment affects your handling, and it can create a pull on your vehicle that can be very straining during long drives as you’re constantly fighting to keep your vehicle going straight. Over time, poor alignment can also damage other components, and causes your tires to wear our unevenly, and therefore more quickly. That’s why it’s important to have a technician inspect your wheel alignment periodically.
If you’re driving and your car seems to pull you in one direction, you probably need to have your wheel alignment checked. Improper wheel alignment affects your vehicle’s handling and steering, which may cause you to lose control on the road. To maintain precise control, your car’s wheels need to be in contact with the road, and that’s where proper wheel alignment comes in.
