Why You Need Wheel Alignment

3 Reasons to Get Your Wheels Aligned

Have you wondered how wheel alignment could benefit your vehicle? As a part of regular maintenance, wheel alignment service helps your vehicle continue to perform at its best. If you notice any of these signs of poor performance, consider professional wheel alignment service with the area’s experts — Dave’s Valley Auto Clinic!

  1. Your Car Drifts In One Direction
  2. When you are driving down the highway, does it feel like your vehicle is tugging in one direction? A vehicle that tends to drift to either the left or right, even when the steering wheel is straight, may have an alignment problem (or an underinflated tire). When even one wheel is slightly crooked, it leads your vehicle in the wrong direction, creating tugging and drifting problems. If you have to battle your vehicle while steering, schedule a wheel alignment service with us!

  3. The Tires Are Wearing Unevenly
  4. When was the last time you examined your tires for signs of wear? Once the tread pattern on a tire is significantly worn, it no longer provides traction and control for the vehicle. Nobody looks forward to tire replacement, which is why it’s important to get the most out of them with proper wheel alignment. Driving on misaligned wheels puts extra strain on the tires, causing accelerated wear. If you notice that your vehicle’s front tire wear pattern does not match the rear, or if you find that one tire has uneven wear on one side, that means you need wheel alignment service!

  5. You Get Poor Fuel Efficiency
  6. Once we have driven our vehicles for some time, we get used to their normal behaviors and expect to see the same performance and fuel efficiency. If you notice a drop in your vehicle’s gas mileage, it means that your car is working harder and consuming more fuel to move. When the wheels aren’t in alignment, your car has to work harder to keep them turning as a whole system. It’s a good idea to have the alignment adjusted by a professional technician to recover optimal fuel efficiency.

Even one of these reasons is enough to warrant wheel alignment service. Contact Dave’s Valley Auto Clinic to schedule yours today!
