Why You Need Wheel Alignment
You’ve likely heard the term wheel alignment on multiple occasions, but perhaps you’re wondering exactly why your vehicle needs one. Wheel alignment is a descriptor of the major suspension angles. If they’re out of the manufacturer’s allowable tolerances, your auto’s steering and handling will be impacted. If you can’t control your car or corner well, you’re putting yourself in danger. What’s more, other vehicle components wear more quickly because they’re under undue stress, leading to costly repairs. Misalignment also causes uneven tire wear that results in the need for premature tire replacement. To avoid these issues, bring your car to the certified technicians at Dynamic Automotive in Frederick, Maryland. For more than 25 years, we’ve been the area’s trusted wheel alignment specialist. Check us out to see why we’re an award-winning establishment where customers become friends.
It’s Not the Hokey Pokey. It’s Signs You Need a Wheel Alignment.
Most of us participated at some point in the children’s dance of the Hokey Pokey. If you didn’t or if you need a refresher, the premise is that you follow directions and move your arms legs in and out. If your car is out of alignment, it may feel as if it’s constantly being coerced into an awkward position or driving pattern, but it’s not the Hokey Pokey. It’s the sign that your auto needs a wheel alignment. Pay attention to your steering wheel. If it isn’t straight or won’t return to the center position, you likely have a wheel alignment problem. Additionally, squealing tires aren’t a game call. They probably are sounding the misalignment alarm. Notice your tire wear, too. Uneven wear (well worn in some spots and not others) is not normal and likely points out the problem. If you don’t catch and correct the problem early, you’ll ruin your tires. Finally, if the vehicle is pulling to one side when you’re trying to drive straight, you almost surely need a wheel alignment.
