Three things to know about wheel alignment


With every bump in the road or pothole you just can’t avoid, your wheels can move out of alignment.

Wheels that are out of position could cause driving to become difficult. Aligning your wheels is a relatively easy process and can be completed by the trusted service team at Moore Tires. Here are three things to know about wheel alignment:

1. Wheel alignment extends the life of your tires.

When your wheels are properly lined up, your car will offer a smoother ride. When your wheels are not aligned, you may begin to notice uneven tire wear.

If you ignore the warning signs, you risk having to replace your tires sooner than you would have expected.

2. Wheel alignment is important to your steering and safety.

Your steering wheel can appear off center when you are traveling on a straight road. If your tire pressure is correct and your vehicle continues to pull sharply in one direction, you may need to have your wheels aligned.

3. Wheel alignment impacts your gas mileage.

Your vehicle is less fuel efficient when your vehicle is misaligned. Misalignment can decrease gas mileage by up to 10 percent, according to Investopedia. Instead of rolling freely, misaligned tires drag. That means if your tires aren’t adjusted properly, you could be spending more money on gas. A wheel alignment could help you conserve fuel and fill up less often.

Wheel Alignment is done at the time brand-new tires are set up and can easily be checked with your regular tire rotation. Moore Tires Inc. offers quality affordable Illinois auto repair services and certified technicians provide you with a dependable wheel alignment.

Even without experiencing problems, most vehicle manufacturers recommend checking your alignment every 10,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first. The latest alignment inspection technology allows alignment to be checked automatically during every service visit.

The auto repair mechanics at Moore Tires can also inspect for steering and suspension concerns, as well as drive-line complications.
