Hit Curb with Wheel

Q: When I parallel park, I sometimes hit the curb. Will hitting curbs cause damage to my car?

A: Running into a curb could change the wheel alignment, loosen wheel weights, and damage the tires. When parallel parking, you should stay six to twelve inches from the curb. If you do hit the curb and then notice your steering wheel pulling one way during regular driving, have the alignment checked.
