Some vehicle owners confuse wheel alignment with wheel balancing. One issue does not affect the other, although both of these adjustments affect the ride and handling of your vehicle. If the car alignment is not adjusted properly, it will cause excessive wear and tear on your tires, accompanied with steering or tracking problems. If a wheel is just out of balance, you will likely only feel a vibration in the steering wheel and/or the seat at highway speeds.

What is a wheel alignment, you ask? Simply stated, a wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. This helps maximum the life of your tires and ensures that your vehicle will track straight and true on a level road.

A Wheel Alignment Service should include:

  • Test drive at the start and at the end of each car alignment service.
  • The front end and steering linkage should be checked for excessive wear.
  • The tires checked for excessive camber wear (caused by the tires making only partial contact with the road). All four tires should have even wear patterns.
  • Check other components that can cause pulling problems, such as poor tires, failing brakes, or faulty power steering.

A word to the wise: Know your vehicle so you will be able to recognize a wheel alignment problem. To prevent damage to other components of your vehicle, be sure to schedule an inspection and repair by a car alignment specialist as soon as possible.
