  • How to know if my car is due for a wheel alignment?

    Hi guys, here are some good tips on how to decide whether your car is due to wheel alignment (true for most car models currently on the market)

    1. The steering wheel steer off the center

    If you're driving an off-center wheel even if it's only over a few degrees in either direction – it's a simple indicator that your vehicle needs a wheel alignment.
    Doing so can bring the car's steering wheel back to the center. It will also boost the overall driving efficiency of your car

    2. The car moves sharply in one direction

    If you're driving and your car is pulling to one side of the lane, it's an easy signal that you need to check and correct the wheel alignment of your vehicle.

    3. Uneven or abnormal tire wear

    Check the tires and check if there is wear on the outside or inside edges of the tire. If yes, this is a direct indicator of the issue of camber adjustment.
    The mechanic often notices tire wear while undertaking repair, inspection, and tire rotation. If you are checking abnormal wear patterns in your car tires, you should start thinking about having a wheel alignment on your car. Apart from good tire alignment, it also offers other advantages, including longer tire life and even tire wear.

    4. Handling the car feels loose

    It might feel sloppy or very unstable around the corners. If you're experiencing it in your car, if you're turning or going straight, it's time to check the alignment of your vehicle's wheel and correct it accordingly.

    5. The steering wheel doesn’t return to the center

    In this case, you will have to get it checked and, if required, make a full alignment.

    6. Vibrations on steering wheel

    More often, this is because of unbalanced tires, but it can also be a sign that your vehicle is due for a wheel alignment. When it comes to alignment problems, the vibration is the result of the tires pulling in the opposite directions of each other.
