4 Signs That Your Car Needs Wheel Alignment

4 Signs That Your Car Needs Wheel Alignment

We normally don’t think of wheel alignment until we buy new tires, but Bay Area roads are in a bad state, and city streets are riddled with potholes, bumps, and occasional road work that makes it really easy for the wheels to get out of alignment. Albany suffers from bad road surface as much as any Bay Area town.

To fix alignment problems caused by bad road surface, Adams Autoworx offers computerized Albany wheel alignment. Alignment machines are precision instruments that can detect very slight misalignment, even as slight as 1/100th of an inch.

The main benefits of proper alignment are smoother ride and better vehicle control. With proper wheel alignment, your vehicle will experience slower tire wear and better fuel economy.

So check your vehicle for these signs of wheel alignment issues:

  1. Your vehicle pulls to the right of left
  2. Vehicle handling problems
  3. The steering wheel is not straight when driving on a straight roadway
  4. Uneven tire wear

If your vehicle exhibits any of the above symptoms, it’s a good idea to bring it in for an alignment check. We also recommend alignment check if you have not done so during the last 2 years. For more information, visit our Albany wheel alignment page.
