A wheel alignment is a service that most vehicle owners are familiar with. The frequency of when a wheel alignment is needed for your vehicle will depend on a few things, including your driving habits. A wheel alignment is usually needed about every 2 years, depending on how much you drive. Sometimes, you may need a wheel alignment sooner due to an occurrence on the road that forces your wheels out of alignment.
Your vehicle's wheels can be pushed out of alignment by regular occurrences, such as driving fast over speed bumps, driving over potholes, hitting curbs, car collisions, and more. If you suspect that there is an issue with your wheel alignment, we recommend that your vehicle is inspected as soon as possible. When you continue to drive with a bad wheel alignment, you end up causing damage to your tires and to internal steering and suspension parts.
Signs that your wheels are out of alignment include:
- Squealing tires
- Uneven or rapid tire wear
- Vehicle pulls to one side
- Vibrating while driving
If you notice any of the symptoms above, or it’s been awhile since your last alignment, don’t hesitate to bring your vehicle into our shop here at Victory Auto Service & Glass for fast and friendly service.
