An alignment can ensure that your car handles well, your tires maintain even tread, and you have better control over your car in an accident.

Here are the top three signs that you might be due for an alignment:

Your Car Pulls to One Side

When you are driving, your wheels should point straight, and they should be easy to turn in either direction. When you need an alignment, your car will pull to one side or the other. You may find yourself constantly turning in the opposite direction just to drive straight, or you may struggle with making turns in the direction opposite where the car is turning.

You Feel Vibrations while Driving

When your car is out of alignment, the wheels will pull against each other, creating vibrations. The worse the problem is, the greater the vibration will be. If you notice vibrations while you are driving, it’s time to check your tires or to see if you need an alignment.

Your Tires Have Uneven Wear

An uneven alignment will cause your tires to to move out of position. Some will bear more pressure than others. You will notice that some tires have more wear. Check your tires. If they aren’t all wearing down evenly, you may need a new alignment.

Taking care of maintenance tasks like an alignment can help you keep your car in top shape for many years to come and reduce costs you will pay in repairs.
