The wheels on your vehicle must be in the correct alignment to keep things running smoothly. When your wheels become misaligned, it can cause a myriad of problems including worn-down tire tread and decreased fuel efficiency. Having a wheel alignment in Melbourne, FL performed at regular intervals is an important part of good preventative maintenance. At 2000 Auto, we offer wheel alignments for every make and model at our AAA Approved and ASE-Certified facility.
Wheel Alignment Melbourne, FL
You can ask our team to check your wheel alignment any time you bring your vehicle in for service. If the wheels aren’t properly aligned, it can cause a range of problems for you when you drive. Some of the most common signs of misaligned wheels include:
- Your car or the steering wheel pulls to the right or the left side when you’re driving
- The steering wheel seems crooked when you’re driving in a straight line
- You notice vibrations, shaking, or wobbling from the steering wheel (this may also be related to tire imbalance)
- The tread on your tires is suddenly worn out faster than usual, or you notice an unusual pattern of tread wear that shows extreme wear on one side of the tire
These are the most common signs that you need an alignment, but it’s not always that obvious. Other signs can include reduced fuel economy or an unexpected flat tire that isn’t the result of a puncture. If the car’s wheels are not aligned to specification, your vehicle will struggle to remain in a straight line and to maintain proper contact with the road. Over time, this drifting or pulling can make your engine work harder which means your vehicle needs to burn more fuel to operate. Drifting and pulling is also why your tire tread may suddenly become worn out, or why you end up on the side of the road with a blown tire. With regularly scheduled wheel alignment services, you can ensure that your car is running the way it should while saving money, too.
