SO, WHAT IS WHEEL ALIGNMENT?

A standard wheel alignment process includes relative angle adjustment of the tyres. The aim is to make them compatible with the manufacturer’s optimal specification. The three major adjustments are toe, camber, and caster.

WHEEL ALIGNMENT BENEFITS

As you align tyres appropriately, they track true and straight. This, as a result, increases your tyres’ lifetime and enhances fuel economy. Wheel alignment price is nothing in comparison to the average price of a tyre. And after a proper wheel alignment, your tyres will run more smoothly. Moreover, your tyres will get more traction on wet surfaces like snow, rain, and sleet.

TYPES OF WHEEL ALIGNMENTS

Most of the vehicles today require either all-wheel alignment or front wheel alignment. In the latter case, the focus is only on the front wheels. However, it is standard practice to have all the wheels aligned, to ensure safety. A static alignment measurement inspection will ensure if you need to align all the wheels together.

WHEEL ALIGNMENT HOW OFTEN

​Follow your owner’s manual to know exactly when your tyres require alignment. The standard practice, on the other hand, dictates you should have your alignment checked after every 10,000 miles.

If you drive your vehicle on more of an uneven road, with damages and potholes than you should visit an auto repair shop right after crossing the 5,000 miles mark.

If your vehicle pulls down to one side now and then, then the tyres are wearing out for sure. Take your tyres to inspected right away without any doubt. As you keep driving your vehicle, it gradually loses alignment. Upper control arms, tie-rod ends, and ball joints fall out of adjustment or wear out constantly. Furthermore, hitting a pothole also results in a loss of alignment.

Since wheel alignment price is much lower than what it takes to replace a tyre, you should not hesitate to take your vehicle to mechanic whenever it is necessary.
