Benefits of wheel alignment

Ignoring signs of misaligned wheels can make your problems more expensive to address down the road.


Does your vehicle need a wheel alignment?

If you are experiencing irregular tire wear, handling problems or a crooked steering wheel, an alignment check should be performed. Ignoring signs of misaligned wheels can reduce the life of your tires, and can even cause driver assist systems to malfunction. Even without experiencing these problems, most vehicle manufacturers recommend checking your alignment every 10,000 miles or 12 months; whichever comes first. The latest alignment inspection technology allows alignment to be checked every visit.

Protect your investment

Every inch a vehicle is out of alignment is equivalent to dragging the tire sideways at 100 feet per mile!

This creates dangerous driving conditions and places unnecessary wear on tires.

Proper wheel alignment also maximizes fuel economy.

  • Vehicles with wheel alignment conditions can suffer a decrease in fuel efficiency by up to 7%.
  • A vehicle owner who drives 15,000 miles per year and gets an average of 25 miles per gallon at $3.50 per gallon, proper wheel alignment adds up to $150 annual fuel cost savings.

Reset all alignment-related sensors

As vehicle manufacturers build more vehicles with on-board driver-assist systems, such as electronic stability control, parking assist, traction control and more, an increasing number of manufacturers now require a steering system reset during alignment service. It is important to have your vehicle alignment performed by a shop that is equipped with an alignment system that can reset all alignment-related sensors during alignment service.
