Steer Straight | Wheel Alignment, Auto Care

A wheel alignment may be called for if it’s hard to keep your car on the straight and narrow.

When you left the marathon yesterday, you were staggering a bit from exhaustion (and you just watched). Then, you got in your car and discovered that it also had a hard time traveling in a straight line. It sounds like it could be time for a wheel alignment.

“If your steering wheel is off center but the car is driving straight, it’s probably time for an alignment. Alternatively, you can probably draw the same conclusion if the steering wheel is centered, but the car isn’t driving straight,” autoguide.com says.  “Finally, it’s time to seriously consider an alignment if the car wanders from side to side on the road.”

Autoguide explains: an alignment “involves adjusting three main angles of your tires to ensure the car is tracking straight, or driving where you point the steering wheel. Over time, your car’s suspension endures enough abuse from the road to shuffle and jostle things out of their original position.

“Given enough time on the road, this happens to every car. Add other mishaps like bumping into a curb or driving over a speed bump too quickly and your suspension and steering can be rendered unsafe.”

Making sure your wheels are correctly aligned isn’t just a matter of safety and good auto care. It will save you wear and tear on tires and increase your fuel efficiency. It’s truly one of those win-win situations because it makes driving easier and saves you money.
