Proper wheel alignment on a vehicle ensures a smooth ride and easy manoeuvrability. The front and rear ends of a car are made up of the suspension, braking, and steering systems, which have components on each wheel. Over the course of thousands of kilometres, all these systems experience wear caused by bumps in the road, and it’s likely that the original wheel alignment will change over time. The vehicle will start drifting to the left or right, though the power steering will make it somewhat easier to drive straight. The tires will also wear unevenly or prematurely.
A certified NAPA AUTOPRO technician will be able to detect problems during a visual inspection, road test, or routine maintenance. If needed, your certified NAPA AUTOPRO technician will realign the wheels and synchronize the front and rear ends so your vehicle will handle as it should. All manufacturers suggest getting the wheels aligned once a year as part of routine maintenance. However, it’s also a good idea to get your wheels aligned when you have new tires installed.
