The angle of your wheels can become skewed over time causing various changes to your driving experience. Warning signs that it is time to get your wheel alignment checked:
● Uneven tread wear
● A steering wheel that is off-centre when driving straight
● Vehicle pulling off to the left or right
Correct wheel alignment is key to tyre wear, driving comfort, and fuel efficiency. At Hilsea Tyres we recommend you get your wheels aligned every six months or soon if you have hit something such as the curb or even a large pot hole.
If the suspension is out of alignment, there is uneven pressure on the tyres that can cause your car to work harder on the tyres than it needs to. This happens because there is more resistance between the tyre and the road surface. That resistance can cause the tires to wear unevenly with the tyres ultimately becoming worn on one side. It’s dangerous to drive on uneven tyres, and it could force you to purchase tires sooner than you would have needed to with a proper alignment.
When tires begin to wear unevenly, you may feel a vibration in the steering wheel. The tyres may also produce more road noise when the tread is uneven.
Your car works harder when the tyres wear unevenly. The harder the car works, the more fuel it burns. So when the tyres are out of alignment and the tyres begin to wear unevenly, the more money you end up paying in fueal.
Alignment Verification System
Vibrations in the steering wheel or free rolling steering wheels are clear indicators that the cars wheel alignment must be checked. However, small wheel misalignments often remain unnoticed which can result in unnecessary costs due to wear and tear of the tyres, and increased fuel consumption.
Make sure to keep an eye on your alignment for a confident and comfortable ride. Not to mention, you’ll save money down the road.
