Your car needs to be aligned to help ensure that it is going to drive properly, that it is not going to have any damage, and that it is going to serve you for a number of years.
As we drive our wheels naturally go out of alignment. The bumps in the road, holes and other things that we drive over tend to make your wheels a bit wonky and it does affect the way that your car drives. An alignment is when the car is placed on an alignment machine and the wheels are straightened back up with the frame of the car. The wheels need to be aligned in order for the car to drive straight, for it to drive well, and for there to be minimal shaking and bumping.
Tires that are not aligned can cause a range of different issues. For starters, it can cause your car to shake, it can cause your car to rattle, and it can also cause your car to pull to one side or other while you are driving making it difficult to steer. Your wheels being out of alignment can also cause damage to the tires and damage to the frame of the car. You want your tires to be aligned to help make sure that they are going to drive straight and that there will not be issues to deal with.
There are some issues that come with avoiding an alignment. The first is that you may notice that your tires develop flat spots, that they have lumps and bumps, and that they also have trouble with your car pulling making it difficult for you to drive straight. Not having your wheels aligned can negatively affect the overall way that your car runs and can cause a great deal of trouble, as well as damage to the frame, should the wheels be very out of alignment. It is always best to schedule this service before it becomes too bad to help save your tires and save your car.
