The position of the wheels relative to your car is wheel alignment. The wheels point in the right direction when they are properly aligned. If the wheels are not properly aligned, they will resist your steering commands and will also interfere with each other. The alignment of your car also affects the gas mileage and tire wear. If your tires are pointing in different directions, they are not working together efficiently and can cause tread wear. Today's cars have computerized alignment equipment that measures all alignment angles. This includes both adjustable and non-adjustable angles. The suspension component will need to be repaired or replaced if the angles are not adjustable.
Reduced tire wear, better gas mileage, and safer driving conditions are promoted by a wheel alignment, keeping your vehicle running safely and efficiently. If your wheels are out of alignment, it will cause your tires to wear down unevenly. A vehicle that is pulling to the right or left while in motion may have uneven tread wear. If wheel alignment issues are left untreated, they have the potential to turn into steering and suspension issues, since driving with wheels out of alignment not only puts stress on your tires but also on suspension components.
