Volkswagen 4-Wheel Alignment Service

Aligned wheels keep your car driving straight when you want it to, or turning if that’s what you want it to do. However, the term wheel alignment can be confusing. While it is commonly associated with the wheels of the vehicle correctly lining up or tracking, wheel alignment is also related to the vehicle’s suspension. Disruptions to the suspension can result in some components being so knocked out of kilter that the wheels no longer all face the same direction. Wheels can become misaligned in a matter of a second or over a period of time increasing strain on the braking system.

What Causes Wheels to Lose their Alignment?

Your car may become out of alignment for any of these reasons

  • Your car absorbs a heavy impact such as when you hit a curb, drive into a pothole, or are involved in a collision
  • Wear and tear on parts of the suspension, such as when springs start to weaken and sag
  • You have adjusted the height of your car without a corresponding adjustment to the suspension

How to Tell if Your car Needs a Wheel Alignment

The signs of wheel misalignment are actually hard to miss.

  • You’re steering straight, yet the car is straying to one side of the road
  • You’re steering straight, but the steering wheel is not straight
  • The steering wheel vibrates
  • Your tires are showing uneven wear, with most of it occurring on the outer portion

Although these may seem like minor problems, if you put off correcting the alignment, the resulting expenses will quickly add up.

The Consequences of Misaligned Tires

You’ll find yourself buying new tires more often. And the price tag on new tires is more than what you’ll pay for a wheel alignment service. Another thing you’ll be buying more of is gas. Driving around on misaligned wheels results in poor fuel economy. But worst of all, continuing to ride on misaligned tires increases your chances of having a dangerous blowout on the road.
