Regular wheel alignment is an integral part of your routine car maintenance. It is a service you don’t want to neglect because doing so will directly impact your car’s handling, steering, braking and tire durability. Leave your wheel alignment and car maintenance needs in the capable, experienced hands of the professionals at AutoNiche.
The Importance of Wheel Alignment
There are many components in your car that contribute to the wheel alignment, each with their own responsibilities and none more or less important than the other. In order to ensure smooth and safe driving each time you get behind the wheel, you must keep to a regular car maintenance schedule.
A wheel alignment check is usually recommended at least once a year. However, if you have been in a collision, cover long distances daily or drive on poorly maintained roads with many potholes, then you may need to get a wheel alignment earlier than the anniversary of your last alignment check. If your car is shaking, especially at higher speeds or you find it pulling to one side even when you are not turning the steering wheel, you should take it in for wheel alignment as soon as possible.
