When to Check Your Alignment

Wheel alignmentIf you are not a car expert, you may not think much about your vehicle’s alignment. If your alignment is messed up, it could create many problems. Here are a few reasons why you should have it checked:

  • After an Accident – After you have been in an accident, there are many things you must do. One of them is having your alignment checked. If you are taking your car in for other issues, then you should have them check it at the shop. It is also smart to check your alignment if you have been in a fender bender.
  • When You Hit a Curb – Even the best drivers get distracted and hit a curb. If you hit it at any speed higher than your idle speed, then you should have your tires checked out. You can bring it to a specialist. They will tell you if there has been any damage and make recommendations.
  • Your Steering Wheel is Shaking – Does your car shake when you start to speed up? It could be a wide array of issues, but the first place to check is your car alignment. It may be subtle at first, but you will eventually notice it getting worse and worse as your tires start to wear down.
