Most drivers in Nashville know that their wheels need to stay aligned. Otherwise when you release your steering wheel you will notice that your car, truck or SUV will pull to the left or right. Misaligned wheels can cause other issues such as excessive vibrations at higher speeds. Certain signs of uneven tire wear and tear can point to misaligned wheels.
If this is allowed to continue you could possible need to replace your tires sooner than would be necessary if your wheels were correctly aligned. We recommend having your wheel alignment checked every six months or 6,000 miles. This is literally where the rubber meets the road so you can imagine how important proper tire and wheel maintenance can be to your driver experience.
