Keeping your wheels aligned help keep your car going straight and your tires lasting longer. Some cars need only the front end aligned, but cars with all-wheel drive or independent suspension will need a four-wheel alignment. Certified Toyota technicians at our state-of-the-art facility have the latest equipment and know-how to get your car aligned no matter what you need.
If your car goes straight when you let go of the steering wheel, it may not need an alignment. However, if it veers to either side when you let go of the wheel, you need an alignment. Sometimes the steering wheel will vibrate as well when alignment is needed.
Tires normally wear out faster on one side or the other if the alignment is not correct. This will wear out your tires faster than needed and could cause problems with other areas of your car’s steering system. Whether you notice a problem or not, it is a good idea to get your alignment checked annually.
Driving on Misaligned Wheels
Not keeping up with your alignment will probably end up costing you more than the alignment in the long run because you will have to buy tires sooner than you would have. A bad alignment makes your car harder to steer and could cause an accident in extreme cases.
Wheel alignment will only get worse, so eventually, it will be hard to steer your car or even keep it on the road at high speeds. Getting your alignment done is a matter of economics and safety.
