When was the last time you thought about the alignment of your vehicle? Do you even know what that is? We don’t mean to offend, but there is a common misperception amongst most car owners and drivers about what an alignment service entails.
Many are under the impression that when you have an alignment performed – it’s an adjustment to your vehicle’s tires. That’s not the case. It actually involves realigning your suspension system to the proper angle.
Here’s the deal:
When your vehicle rolled off of the assembly line at the manufacturing plant, the suspension system on it was calibrated at a precise angle to keep your tires straight when the steering wheel is centered. Over time, however, as a result of driving on rough road conditions in the Christiansburg and Blacksburg areas, the suspension gets bumped out of the proper alignment.
The most noticeable symptom of misalignment is that when driving straight down the road – the car pulls to the right or left. While some motorists may consider this a minor annoyance, it’s actually more complex than that.
A misaligned vehicle typically puts more strain and wear/tear on one or more tires than the others. This reduces the lifespan of the tire and can cause you to have to replace a tire sooner than you would normally have to.
