What Can Cause Your Wheels to Knock Out Of Alignment?

Quality and proper wheel alignment are vital for your vehicle’s handling and safety. They also promote even tire wear. When all your wheels’ angles are adjusted to their automaker’s specifications, you’ll have peace of mind that your car can have the best mobility. On the other hand, misaligned wheels can cause challenges with steering and handling. That is why it is imperative for you to bring your car, SUV, or truck to the experts at Mazur’s Total Automotive for a wheel alignment at the first signs of trouble.

Signs of Poor Wheel Alignment

When your wheels are knocked out of alignment, they won’t be able to point straight. You may notice one or more of the following red flags:

  • Vehicle pulling left or right
  • Shakiness or vibrations
  • Bumpy ride
  • Premature and uneven tire wear
  • Off-centered steering wheel

What Causes Your Wheels to Knock Out of Alignment?

Knowing what can cause damage to your wheels is just as important as being able to spot the signs. Typically, your wheels are aligned when you get new tires. The angles can shift as you cover more miles with them, or in other words, they can change from natural wear and tear. However, they can be misaligned for other reasons, including:

  • Curbs
  • Road debris
  • Potholes
  • Poor suspension
  • Improper mods
  • And minor collisions
