Wheel Alignment Helps Save Springfield, VA Tires and More

Understanding why a wheel alignment is necessary along with what role it plays for your car is an important part of learning to understand how your car works. A wheel alignment is a routine procedure that any auto shop around Springfield, VA should be able to do. The reason that you need to have these done is to adjust the angle of the wheels against your car and the road. On a normal car the wheels should be set to be almost exactly perpendicular to the road. Depending on the tire type, they may get a little bit off while spinning and this can cause big problems if it is not dealt with. Mainly, uneven tire wear. This will drastically reduce the lifetime of your tires, and it will end up costing you even more money down the road.

Typically a car will have the wheels aligned at the factory before it gets shipped. However, during the first few thousand miles, the wheels will tend to set in to the pattern that they will follow for years to come. At this point it’s a good idea to have your Springfield, VA mechanic take a look at them, and make sure that the wheel alignment is still where it should be. After this you will be set for quite a while, and if you just have the alignment checked each time a new set of wheels is installed, you should be good to go.

However if you start to notice weird vibrations or a bumpy jerky ride, that could also be a sign of a bad wheel alignment and you should take it to a shop and have it looked at. Proper care of your Springfield, VA vehicle is very important if you want your car to enjoy a healthy 200k+ miles lifetime. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us, we are always happy to clarify any points that you are confused about.
