The Road to Smooth Driving: Your Guide to Tire Alignment

Tire Aignment
At Englewood Ford, we understand the importance of proper tire alignment in ensuring a safe and enjoyable driving experience. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll delve into the significance of tire alignment, how it affects your vehicle, common signs of misalignment, and why regular checks are crucial for your car’s performance and longevity.

Understanding Tire Alignment:

Tire alignment, also known as wheel alignment, is the process of adjusting your vehicle’s suspension components to ensure that the tires make optimal contact with the road. Proper alignment ensures that your tires wear evenly and that your vehicle travels straight without veering to one side.

The Importance of Tire Alignment:

  1. Extended Tire Life: Proper alignment prevents premature tire wear, saving you money on replacements.
  2. Enhanced Fuel Efficiency: Correctly aligned wheels reduce rolling resistance, improving your vehicle’s fuel economy.
  3. Improved Handling: Aligned wheels provide better vehicle control, enhancing safety during your travels.
  4. Reduced Stress on Suspension: Proper alignment reduces stress on suspension components, preventing costly repairs down the road.

Signs of Misalignment:

Recognizing the symptoms of misalignment can help you address issues promptly:
  • Vehicle Pulling: If your car drifts to one side when driving on a straight road, it may require alignment.
  • Uneven Tire Wear: Irregular wear patterns on your tires, such as one side wearing faster than the other, signal alignment problems.
  • Crooked Steering Wheel: A misaligned vehicle often results in a crooked steering wheel when driving straight.
  • Vibrations: Vibrations in the steering wheel or throughout the vehicle’s body can indicate misaligned wheels.

When to Schedule Alignment Checks:

Routine alignment checks should be part of your vehicle’s maintenance plan:
  • Every 12,000 Miles: Aim to schedule an alignment check approximately every 12,000 miles or at least once a year.
  • After Impact: Following a significant pothole or curb impact, consider having your alignment checked.
  • New Tires: When installing new tires, aligning the wheels ensures they wear evenly and last longer.
