How to Tell When Your Car Needs a Wheel Alignment
Some telltale signs that your wheels may be out of alignment include:
- The steering wheel is not centered when you are driving straight ahead.
- The tires are showing uneven wear.
- The car pulls to one side when driving.
- You hear unusual noises when steering.
Should you notice any of the above, it is a good idea to visit our Service Centre near Edmonton to have your wheel alignment checked out.
How Often Will My Car Need a Wheel Alignment?
Although there is no hard-and-fast wheel alignment schedule, the service team at Capital GMC Buick recommends that you have your wheel alignment checked every 10,000 kilometres. A routine inspection can identify any problems with the alignment or suspension before they become more serious and expensive to repair. Our state-of-the-art Service Centre is equipped with the most advanced diagnostic tools available, and our expert technicians can quickly locate and resolve any issues we find.
What Causes Car Wheels to Get Out of Alignment?
There are a few different things that can cause a car’s wheels to go out of alignment. Here are the most common:
- Hitting a pothole, bumping into a curb, driving too fast over a speed hump, or being involved in a collision.
- Loose, worn, or damaged suspension components, such as shocks or struts.
- Vehicle modification. For example, if you have installed a lift kit on your truck, it will change the height of the vehicle, and if the suspension has not been adjusted accordingly, it can cause the wheels to go out of alignment.
What is Wheel Alignment Service?
When you bring your car, truck, or SUV in for an Edmonton wheel alignment service, our technicians will make adjustments to the suspension to ensure that the tires are perpendicular to the road and parallel to each other. This will make the tires contact the road surface evenly and help to keep all four tires working together at the same speed and in alignment. As stated before, a wheel alignment service isn’t a part of your regular maintenance schedule and is performed only when necessary.
