How Does Poor Alignment Happen?

  • Many factors impact your vehicle's alignment. You typically need alignment service after a major or minor collision that results in physical damage to your vehicle's frame.
  • Your vehicle needs immediate attention when you notice steering problems or uneven tire wear patterns on your tires.
  • Sometimes problems arise from something as small as driving over a pothole, or grazing over a curb. A wheel alignment adjustment may be necessary if the vehicle pulls to the right or the left when the steering wheel is in straight ahead position. Another indicator of the need for an alignment check is if tires are wearing unevenly or you’ve hit something on the road. As a rule, every vehicle should have an alignment done every 6 months. Your vehicle's suspension is made of a number of sophisticated components and systems that all need to be in perfect alignment and working together. Bad roads and normal wear from driving can throw your suspension out of alignment over time and cause excessive tire wear and other problems. One way to make sure your suspension stays in good working order is to make sure your tires are aligned correctly. With properly aligned wheels, you'll get:


  • Tires that last longer
  • Easier steering
  • Improved gas mileage
  • Smoother ride
  • Safer, more secure driving

Alignment Service:

Many discount tire retailers don't even offer alignment service. They will tell you that balancing is the same or good enough. This is simply not true. Tire/wheel balancing and wheel alignment are two very different things. Together, they will help your tires last much longer so you don’t have to replace them as frequently, which could save you hundreds of dollars down the road. Low tire alignment cost is yet another great service that ABE offers, so you get out the door with more.

Driving without proper alignment costs you money. Not only does flawed alignment decrease gas mileage and tire life, but it also adds stress to your vehicle's steering equipment and structure. Ideally, your vehicle's wheels should run perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Adjusting these wheel angles will bring your vehicle back into proper alignment.

Driving without proper alignment puts you at risk. An out-of-alignment car pulls and drifts away from a straight road and may cause an accident. Excessive tire wear—another result of bad car alignment—leads to tire blow-outs and poor traction, which also causes accidents. Bring in your vehicle and our alignment experts will make sure your vehicle drives smoothly and safely.
