Here are five reasons why getting regular wheel alignments is good for your car, your bank account, and your peace of mind.
1: Better gas mileage. When your wheels are aligned properly, it cuts down on rolling resistance, which means that you car doesn’t have to work as hard or burn as much fuel in order to move forward. This is good news all round – not only will you spend less money on gas, but your car will also decrease the amount of pollution it puts out.
2: More mileage out of your tyres. Even the slightest problem with your alignment can have disastrous effects on your tyres. If your tyres have too much or too little toe-in (the degree at which they point in toward each other at the front) a narrow strip on each tyre will wear down very quickly. Getting regular wheel alignments means your tyres will last as long as possible.
3: Tyre warranties still apply. The problem with your tyres wearing from poor wheel alignment is that it usually voids your warranty on the tyres. Most warranties only apply to the quality of the goods. Failing to get wheel alignments often enough is considered to be negligence on the part of the car’s owner, and usually means that the warranty is voided.
4: Less wear and tear on other parts. Having the wheels out of alignment can be stressful on the rest of your car, too. It means that you continually put pressure on the steering system in order to keep the car straight, and when you brake you often feel the car pull even more sharply, indicating that the brakes are working harder on one side than the other.
5: Easier to drive. One of the biggest advantages of having your wheels aligned properly is that your car is easier to drive. No annoying pull to one side or the other. It’s much easier and more pleasant to drive a car that has had regular wheel alignments.
