As a result of frequent use, your wheels will eventually start to become misaligned. Over time, you’ll need to have your wheels adjusted so that you don’t put undue wear and tear on the rest of your car. The suspension of your car is usually the first thing that is negatively affected if you need to have wheel alignment, but put it off. However, this is just one example of the many ways not getting a wheel alignment can affect the rest of your car.
Wheel alignment is necessary because it helps your car be as efficient as possible. You’ll have better gas mileage and your tires will last longer if you have the wheels aligned periodically. You may not be able to perceive that your tires need to be aligned, but as a result of every day usage over the course of a year, you will likely benefit from having them fixed.
Wheel alignment needs to happen about once a year. Of course, if you notice that your tires are wearing unevenly or that your car veers off to one side more than the other, it doesn’t matter how long it’s been –you need wheel alignment as soon as possible.
