Wheel Alignment

Q: Should an alignment be part of regular maintenance?

A: I recommend getting an alignment when one or more of the following conditions occurs: the vehicle hit a curb or other obstruction; steering wheel is pulling one way or another; one or more tires are wearing abnormally; when replacing the tires; after an accident or going in the ditch; and, when suspension or steering components have been replaced. The correct alignment will increase the life of the tires, increase fuel economy, and provide for safer driving.
