As you get behind the steering wheel of your car and head out, you may start to notice a few steering problems, such drifting to the side of the road, or the steering wheel isn’t straight when the wheels are straight. It’s probably time for a car alignment service.

So how often should the wheel alignment be checked? The correct answer is, whenever you start to notice problems. At the very least, have the alignment checked at every other oil change or at the first sign of premature tire wear. It is possible to skew the alignment without realizing it, such as hitting curbs, going too fast over speed bumps, hitting potholes too fast, or having an accident, no matter how minor.

There are some noticeable signs that could indicate a misalignment:

  • Vehicle pulling to the left or right
  • Uneven or rapid tire wear
  • The steering wheel is crooked when driving straight
  • Squealing tires

Proper car alignment involves setting the camber (inward or outward tilt of the wheels when looking head on), caster (wheel tilt front or back looking from the side) and toe-in or toe-out (looking down at the wheels from above). The adjustments are measured in fractions of an inch and require specialized alignment equipment.

Car alignment problems are more damaging than most drivers know. Not only does it affect the handling of your vehicle, but it adds excessive wear and tear to your tires, suspension, and steering systems. A misaligned car can shorten the life of your tires by thousands of miles and compromise crucial steering and suspension parts. The price of an alignment service is much more cost-effective than paying for a new set of tires
