Wheel alignment is the condition of wheel-tire assemblies relative to your vehicle’s suspension and is defined by three angles named the camber, caster, and toe-in. Wheel angles at factory specifications ensure that the wheels point straight, front wheels pivot parallel, and the tires grip the road with optimal traction for even tread wear and safety in adverse conditions. Routine wheel alignment service is recommended every 12 months because the suspension components loosen and cause wheel angles to move out of specifications. Wheel alignment service is a smart decision alongside tire replacement service to ensure that your new tires are not exposed to rapid tread wear caused by faulty wheel angles.
Getting the wheel alignment checked every six months is a smart strategy for preventing the consequences of bad wheel angles.
