Signs It Is Time for a Wheel Alignment

Wheel Alignment: Why You Need It

Signs Your Vehicle Needs Wheel Alignment

What is a Wheel Alignment?

Wheel alignment is adjusting the steering and suspension systems on your vehicle to align the wheels with the road and axles on your vehicle. Over time and with some help from potholes, curbs, and road hazards, your vehicle's wheels can get knocked out of alignment. This misalignment causes your vehicle to work harder because the engine has to push harder to make the wheels move forward when the alignment wants them to move toward or away from each other. Depending on your vehicle and how many wheels the misalignment affects, your mechanic may recommend an all-wheel alignment or a two-wheel alignment.

Signs Your Vehicle Needs Wheel Alignment

Is your steering wheel cock-eyed when the tires are straight? That's a sign your wheel alignment is off, and it's time to take your vehicle to a certified repair shop like Noble Auto Service in Noblesville, IN. Another sign of misalignment is if your vehicle pulls to the left or right while driving on a straight stretch of highway. Are you noticing a strange wear pattern on your tires? It could be a sign of misalignment, especially if the wear pattern is on the edges of the tread instead of the middle. You may also notice a loose feeling in the steering when you're driving or see that your steering wheel does not attempt to return to center after a turn.
