Why Should I Get My Tires Aligned?

There are lots of advantages that come with getting your tires aligned at least once or twice a year. In fact, failure to get your tires aligned regularly can lead to:

  • Steering Wheel Misalignment – The car doesn’t drive straight when the steering wheel is at 12 o’clock.
  • Pulling to Left or Right – The steering system tends to pull to the left or right, requiring you to make constant corrections with the steering wheel.
  • Uneven Tire Wear – If your wheels aren’t aligned, you’ll likely notice that your tire tread is wearing unevenly, which could force you to have to buy a new set of tires sooner than you otherwise would.
  • Pulsing and Shaking – The chassis and/or steering wheel give an uncomfortable feedback to to the misalignment of the wheels.

How to Align Tires

It’s possible to check your wheel alignment on your own, but the tools required for a tire alignment are generally not at the disposal of most car owners. That’s why almost everyone chooses to take their car for a tire alignment at a professional service center.

How Much is a Tire Alignment?

Tire alignment cost varies quite a bit, but in general you can usually expect to pay somewhere between $75-200 for a typical alignment.
