Everyday driving, traffic, and uneven roads naturally wear on your car’s tires and alignment, so even the world’s best drivers still face alignment issues. The issue isn’t with the tires, but rather with the suspension of the car that causes tires to tilt or bow in or out. Normal driving can cause parts of the suspension to rotate, tweak, or bend. Alignment is measured by the angles of your tires from the side and from the top of the car. Once you’ve had your car aligned, you will likely be able to tell a big difference in the ease of driving and the car’s overall performance.
An unaligned car leads to uneven tire wear, which can cause tires to lose tread much quicker than they would in an aligned car. For the good of your car and your wallet, taking the preventative measure of having your vehicle aligned can save hundreds of dollars and prolong the life of your tires.
