The model you drive and its powertrain design usually determines if your vehicle needs a two-wheel or four-wheel alignment. Front-wheel-drive vehicles usually only require a two-wheel alignment, whereas all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive vehicles require a four-wheel alignment. No matter what powertrain type that you drive, the telltale warning sign of needing an alignment is rapid tire wear and decreased handling.
Wheel alignment ensures that your tires grip the road properly. This will invite the benefits of proper wheel alignment into your driving experience. Here are the proven benefits of keeping a vehicle’s wheels aligned:
Ignoring rapid tire wear or merely putting off wheel alignment service will allow problems to surface where the rubber meets the road with unpleasant driving consequences. Responding to these warning signs with corrective alignment service will contain the problem and correct the situation before it worsens. Here are the consequences of poor wheel alignment:
Wheel alignment defines how the wheel assemblies connect with the suspension with three angles called the camber, caster, and toe, guiding how the tires are pointed and meet the road. When wheels are in alignment, tires are pointed correctly, front wheels rotate parallel to one another, and the tires’ tread grips the road flatly at a perfect 180-degree angle. Wheels will not remain aligned as the angles can get knocked off from hitting potholes and from suspension component wear. Wheel alignment service adjusts the wheel angles back to factory specifications.
