How often your vehicle needs a wheel alignment will depend on a number of different things, including your vehicle, your tires, and your driving habits. The typical interval for alignments is around every 2 years. However, there are other occurrences that can happen which can cause your wheels to be forced out of alignment, causing you to need an alignment sooner.
Wheels can be forced out of alignment by a number of things, including driving fast over speed bumps, driving over potholes, hitting curbs, car collisions, and more. If you suspect that there is an issue with your wheel alignment, have your vehicle inspected as soon as possible. Driving with your wheels out of alignment can actually cause damage to your vehicle’s internal parts.
Signs that your wheels are out of alignment include:
- Squealing tires
- Uneven or rapid tire wear
- Vehicle pulls to one side
- Vibrating while driving
If you notice any of the symptoms above, or it’s been awhile since your last alignment, don’t hesitate to bring your vehicle into our shop here at Broad Stroke Associates for fast and friendly service.
