Learn about basic wheel alignment

You may be wondering "Do I need to get my car aligned?" or you may not be quite sure what that actually means. Here is some information to help you understand what an alignment is and when you may need one.

What is an alignment?

Forward or backward tilt of king pin or spindle support arm at the top. Measured in degrees positive or negative. Too little causes high-speed instability and poor directional stability such as wandering. Too much causes hard steering, excessive road shock, and shimmy through the steering wheel. Usually not a factor in tire wear

Signs your car needs an alignment:

  • Your vehicle may pull to the right or left

  • When you drive in a straight line, your steering wheel is off-center

  • The tread on your tires is wearing unevenly

  • You feel a vibration in the steering wheel

  • Noisy steering

  • Tread on some tires is wearing quicker than other tires
