Everything You Need To Know About Car Wheel AlignmentEverything You Need To Know About Car Wheel Alignment

Most of us do not realize the significance of car wheel alignment. We all car owners feel nothing much impacts the wheels of our car and ignore them unless and until we have a flat tire in the middle of the road. However, taking your car for a regular Wheel Alignment Service is extremely important. 

What Is Wheel Alignment?
Wheel alignment is a process wherein the wheels of your car are balanced in a particular setting that they are perpendicular to the road and parallel to one another.

Significance Of Wheel Alignment Service
There are many benefits of having the wheels of your car aligned. The major benefit is that you save a lot on fuel. When the wheels of your car are not aligned there is uneven pressure on the tires. The car tends to pull towards a particular direction. This leads to uneven friction and more resistance to the road surface which in turn consumes more fuel. However, when the wheels are properly aligned there is less resistance from the road surface and less pressure on the tires which helps you save on your fuel bills.

If you ignore and avoid wheel alignment, there will be more pressure on the rubber of tires due to more resistance to the road surface. The tires will wear out faster and you will need to replace them. So, proper wheel alignment on regular basis can help you save on replacement cost of new tires. Most of us assume wear and tear of tires is a manufacturing defect, which is not true. This is due to lack of maintenance which is not manufacturers fault.

Your life is at risk when you are driving a car with faulty wheel alignment. It is difficult to drive on wet roads during monsoons with perfectly aligned wheels. So, you can imagine how risky it is to drive on such roads with the wheels not aligned. You can meet with an accident and hurt yourself as well as others on the road. Safety is of prime importance. Therefore, all car owners must get the wheels of their car aligned regularly.

When And Where Should You Get The Wheel Alignment Service?
Whenever you notice that the steering of your car is pointing straight but your car is pulling towards left or right. Another indicator is your tires, if you see that any one of your tires is worn out more than the other. You should also get your wheels aligned when you have hit something on the road. Manufacturers advise that the wheels of any car should be aligned atleast once in six months. You can get the wheel alignment service done at various leading car service stations where you get your car serviced regularly.
