Why is Wheel Alignment Important?
It is crucial to align the suspension system of your vehicle so that the wheels are centered and pointing straight, contacting the road surface at an optimal angle. Proper wheel alignment saves the tires from unnecessary damage and elongates their life by adjusting their angulation. It also ensures improved control of the vehicle and enhances driving stability. Adequately aligned tires will face less resistance, require less power for moving, and, consequently, enhances fuel efficiency.
What damage can Bad Alignment do?
Misaligned wheels are not only a safety risk for the driver, but they jeopardize other components of the vehicle too. The tread of the tires starts to wear off if they spin at an irregular angle. Inefficient tires require more power for functioning, which increases the consumption of fuel. Wheels misalignment can damage the steering system of the vehicle as the driver needs more force to control the vehicle. The suspension system and brakes are also damaged due to unnecessary stress while driving with misaligned wheels.
