Wheel Alignment & Balance
Proper wheel alignment is key to prolonging the life of your tires. If your vehicle is misaligned, it can cause your tires to wear unevenly, and you may experience a change in how your vehicle handles.
Your tires and wheels are aligned and balanced at the factory to provide the longest life and best overall performance. Adjustments to wheel alignment and tire balancing are not necessary on a regular basis. Consider a wheel alignment check if there is unusual tire wear or the vehicle is significantly pulling to one side or the other. You may notice that the steering wheel turns to the side even when you’re driving in a straight line. You may find it harder to turn the vehicle when the wheels are out of alignment.
Alignment issues can happen for many reasons. If you drive over gravel roads or rough pavement on a regular basis, it can cause your wheels to be misaligned. Hitting a curb or getting in an accident can also knock your wheels out of alignment.
If one of your tires is out of balance, it can affect your ride quality and can shorten the life of tires and other suspension components. If you notice a vibration when driving on a smooth road, the tires and wheels may need to be rebalanced.
