What Wheel Alignment Accomplishes

Automotive Blog

Most people generally avoid or ignore completing wheel alignment services. However, you should make every attempt to realign your wheels on a regular basis, both after an accident and after you replace one or more tires. Here is what wheel alignment accomplishes when you are timely with it.

It Balances All Four Tires for Better Traction

When all four tires are balanced, then your vehicle grips the road better. You are less likely to spin out and less likely to have the tires go in opposite directions when you turn your wheel to avoid danger. Avoiding danger on the road includes avoiding pain and suffering. That alone is enough to motivate anyone to take care of the wheel alignment.

It Extends the Life and Use of Your Tires

When the wheels and tires are aligned properly, then an equal distribution of force occurs. This extends the life of your tires, which means you will not have to replace them quite as often. Fewer replacements mean less expense, and less expense is something everyone can get behind.

It Gives You Greater Control over Your Vehicle

The steering wheel, the drive train, the wheels, and your tires are all connected. What affects one of these components affects the rest. Wheel alignment gives you greater control over your vehicle because the wheels are all going in the same direction that you want to go, and the steering wheel does not have to be turned slightly this way or that to keep the wheels headed in the right direction. In the event of an accident, you are more in control because you do not have to compensate for lack of alignment in this particular system of your vehicle.

You Will Not Torque Your Drivetrain out of Whack

The drivetrain includes your steering wheel, wheels, and axles. When your alignment is off, you frequently have to torque (twist) your drivetrain out of whack to make things work the way you expect them to work. You really should not have to do that, nor should you, because that kind of activity can mess up your drivetrain.

Aligning the wheels and steering wheel prevents damage to the drivetrain. That is important because these interconnected systems are really expensive to fix once they are damaged and/or broken. When you consider the fact that a twenty-minute service prevents all of the above, it is a no-brainer decision to have the service completed regularly.
