Making sure your wheels are correctly aligned improves the performance and longevity of your tires. Unfortunately, wheels are frequently misaligned due to hitting potholes, bumps, curbs, driving on uneven surfaces, and general wear and tear. Therefore, keeping your wheels accurately aligned is critical to maintaining their quality and performance.
The angle of your wheels in relation to the body of your vehicle is referred to as wheel alignment. True Auto Care in Elmira, ON technicians can pinpoint how much adjustment is required and apply it using cutting-edge technology.
We recommend that you get your wheel alignment checked at least every 10,000 kms and any time you experience a change in the driving or handling of your vehicle.
Wheel alignments ensure that your vehicle’s tires move, rotate, or point straight ahead. Having your tires appropriately aligned will increase tire life and make driving easier. However, large potholes or other objects, such as curbs, can cause tires to become out of alignment. When your tire is out of alignment, it can cause complex handling and excessive tire wear.
Camber, caster, and toe are three factors that influence your vehicle’s wheel alignment. Camber refers to the wheel’s angle seen from the front of the vehicle. The camber measurement on your tire should be 0°.
Ensuring appropriate wheel alignment is critical to avoiding potential wear on your tires, steering, suspension, and brakes. Accurate wheel alignment helps improve driving stability, tire life, and overall handling efficiency. For a hassle-free riding experience, proper wheel alignment is essential.
When there is any problem with your vehicle, it notifies you by way of signs or symptoms. For example, improper wheel balancing or alignment might create several consequences. Some are related to tire wear and tear, while others are associated with drifting and pulling.
The angle of your wheels can become skewed over time, causing various changes to your driving experience. Here are some of the warning signs that your vehicle needs wheel alignment:
Here are some dangers if you don’t fix the wheel alignment issue-
Once you get a wheel alignment done, you will notice some of the advantages, a few of them are:
When your car’s wheels aren’t correctly aligned, they don’t work together as they should. As a result, your vehicle’s engine has to work much harder to propel you forward, reducing fuel economy.
When you drive with a poor alignment, the parts in your car wear unevenly and prematurely. When you hit a pothole or a bump in the road, your steering and suspension systems suffer. When your tires aren’t evenly distributing the impact, certain areas of these systems take the brunt of the damage, causing them to fail sooner than they should.
When your car’s wheel alignment is off, you will notice that it drifts slightly to the right or left, even when your steering wheel is aimed straight ahead. Constantly adjusting your steering to compensate for poor alignment is exhausting, inefficient, distracting, and potentially dangerous!
Last but not least, your tires. Your tires are an expensive and vital auto part that wears out much more quickly when you don’t get regular wheel alignments. When you align your tires and they work together in harmony, they will take you much further, and you won’t have to buy new tires sooner than you need to.
