Without a proper wheel alignment, your tires can wear faster, costing you more over the life of your vehicle.
Check out this video that helps explains why wheel alignments are important.
Your fuel consumption may also increase because the tires are not rolling as smoothly as they should. There could be a slight dragging effect that may require more effort from your engine. Your vehicle also may not handle as it was designed to, at which point you may find it difficult to maintain control of your ride altogether.
How often should I have my alignment checked?
We recommend an alignment check with every other oil change. A lot can happen over the course of 10,000 kilometers. You drive through potholes, travel down gravely stretches of road, or worse, knock your wheels on the curb while making a turn. All these things can impact the way your tires sit, throwing off alignment in an instant.
Did you know?
The longer you wait for an alignment, the more chances there are for damage to occur. You’d be surprised. If it’s been a while since your last alignment, it’s time for an alignment check.
