Wheel Alignment

wheel alignment

Sometimes referred to as breaking or tracking, is part of standard automobile maintenance that consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground.  The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tire wear and tear, and ensure that vehicle travel is straight and true (without "pulling" to one side).  Aligment angles can also be altered beyond the maker's specifications to obtain specific handling characteristics.  Motorsports and off-road applications may call for angles to be adjusted well beyond "normal" for a variety of reasons.

If you're wondering whether your car needs an alignment, first look at your tires.  Uneven tire wear -- often, more wear on the outside of some tires -- is a prime indicator that your car is likely out of alignment.  Here are a few more indicators:

  • your car seems to be drifting to one side, even when you think you're driving straight
  • your steering wheel vibrates
  • you are driving straight, but your steering wheel isn't centered

If one of these indicators occurs but it's been a while since your last alignment, check your owner's manual to see how often the manufacturer recommends having this service.
