Automotive Tips from Sparks Tire & Auto: Signs of an Alignment ProblemDec 6th, 2017
When properly aligned, all of your wheels are pointed in the same direction. Your vehicle will track true and handle the way it is designed. St. Charles drivers often associate our wheels being “knocked” out of alignment with an event like an accident, hitting a pothole, curb or some other object.
While these can certainly take your wheels out of alignment, the bumps and bounces of everyday St. Charles driving take their toll on wheel alignment as well.
In addition, your vehicle can lose alignment over time with just normal driving. When your wheels are out of alignment, Sparks Tire & Auto in St. Charles can return your wheels to the vehicle manufacturer’s factory settings. Most owner's manuals suggest an alignment check every year or two.
