The wheels on your car, truck or SUV need to be aligned in order for your vehicle to travel on the road correctly and safely. It is an adjustment of your vehicle's suspension, which is the system that connects your vehicle to its wheels. It involves checking the different angles of your tires, which affects how they make their contact with the road. A tire alignment check includes checking and making adjustments to the camber or angle of the tire from the front of the vehicle as well as the toe, which is the angle of your tires from above and the caster or angle of your tires from a side view.
When you need an alignment check on your vehicle, you will notice some signs of it. When you are driving down a flat and straight road, your steering wheel should be centered. If it's off center, you should have the alignment checked. You may notice when you take your hands off the steering wheel, it veers to the right or left. You may also notice that your tires have an odd tread wear pattern or the handling feels loose when you are driving to indicate you need an alignment check. Another sign is when you navigate a turn and the steering wheel doesn't return to the center on its own. If you notice any of these signs, you should schedule this service as soon as possible.
If you notice any signs of needing an alignment check and you wait to get it, you can experience a vast amount of drivability problems that could lead to auto accidents, such as swerving into another lane and colliding with another driver. It will also make your tires wear out prematurely and cost you more for the alignment and a new set of tires.
