Why is Wheel Alignment Necessary?

There are several reasons why it’s important to get your wheels aligned . Here are a few: 

  • When your car isn’t aligned, the tires will wear down more quickly. Tire rotation alone won’t fix this issue — a technician needs to make sure your tires are parallel and perpendicular to the road’s surface. 
  • Without the proper amount of tread, a tire can’t displace water as well it should, which puts you at risk of hydroplaning if you’re traveling on wet roads. 
  • Steering is much harder if your car’s wheels aren’t aligned. This can put you, as well as others on the road, in a dangerous situation. If you can’t steer properly, you may not be able to avoid possible accidents or hazards in time. 
  • Poorly aligned tires can cause the steering wheel to vibrate and shake, making it difficult to control your car.

Signs Your Car Needs a Wheel Alignment 

A number of situations can cause your car to go out of alignment. For example, you may hit a pothole or curb and damage the suspension system. Or, your car’s suspension components may age and wear down, causing an alignment issue. Whatever the cause, it’s easy to tell if you’re dealing with an alignment problem. If you notice the following issues, schedule a service appointment at Sacramento Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram right away for an inspection: 

  • Drift: In addition to steering wheel vibration and shaking, drift is another common indicator of poorly aligned tires. Does your vehicle tend to drift to one side as you’re traveling? If so, you may need to get it aligned. 
  • Uneven Tread Wear: There are different patterns of uneven tread wear, such as saw teeth, feathering, and one-sided shoulder wear. Whether your tire feels like the teeth on a saw, it’s scuffed, or one side is wearing faster than the other, get it checked out as soon as you can.

Four-Wheel vs. Front-End Alignment: What’s the Difference?

In the past, a wheel alignment could only be completed for a car’s front wheels. Nowadays, four-wheel independent suspension is standard on most new vehicles, giving technicians the ability to align all four wheels. Front-end alignments are still necessary for certain models like work trucks, because they often use a solid rear axle that can’t be aligned. Whether your car needs all of its wheels aligned or just the two front wheels, the team at Sacramento Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram can get it done!
