Many drivers aren’t sure why exactly they need to have their vehicle alignment corrected from time to time. Though it may seem like a process that can be ignored for quite some time, Alignment has some very interesting effects on your vehicle performance. Here are just a few of the reasons that your alignment should be corrected.
- Premature tire wear – If you alignment is incorrect, your tires will be dragged across the road in abnormal ways, this will wear them down prematurely. If this is allowed to continue for an extended period, you can expect to be replacing your tires in a very short amount of time.
- Difficulty steering – Let’s face it, driving a BMW wouldn’t be the same if you were unable to take corners quickly and hug the road while cruising downhill. Alignment services will fix your vehicle ability to grip the road properly, no matter where your road takes you.
- Suspension issues – Alignment will definitely affect your vehicle suspension. Because the tires on your vehicle are constantly being bounced by the road, your suspension is absorbing these shocks and causing damage. This damage is augmented if your tires alignment is twisted in such a way that is unnatural to the suspension.
- Improve gas mileage – by reducing drag from tires, your engine is not forced to work as hard to keep your wheels spinning. This in turn makes it easier for the wheels to spin with less effort, and increases your gas mileage.
After considering all of these reasons, it’s quite easy to see the benefits of correcting your vehicle alignment. One of the little known facts about the connection between alignment and tire wear is that if one of your tires is out of alignment 1/8th of an inch, it is the same as sliding the tire 26 feet sideways for every mile you travel.
Perhaps the most annoying thing about maintaining a vehicles alignment is that it is actually quite easy to damage. For example, if you were to hit a pothole or a curb with even moderate force, you can damage your vehicles alignment. Furthermore, if certain pieces of your suspension become damaged and require replacement, you may need to adjust your alignment before being able to drive with all the benefits of proper alignment.
We suggest that you have your alignment checked at least once every 2 years; this will increase the performance of your vehicle and make sure that you get the most enjoyment out of driving. Call us today for more information on what we can do for you and your vehicle.
