Wheel Alignment in Escondido, CA | San Diego, CA
Your wheel alignment is important
Did you know that a bad wheel alignment is the most costly problem that you can have with your car? A vehicle that is out of alignment can prematurely wear out a set of tires in mere months, and if you don’t correct the wheel alignment problem then you will wear out the next set of tires too.
Here are a few common wheel alignment symptoms
- Your vehicle pulls to the left or to the right while you drive
- Your tire wear is uneven
- Tires wear much faster than a comparative vehicle.
- Your steering wheel is not centered when you are driving straight down the road
- Your steering wheel moves when you hit bumps in the roadway
Adjusting these wheel angles will bring your vehicle back into proper alignment. If you need a wheel alignment, come to Escondido Auto Pros today and we’ll get to work!
What causes your car to pull to the left or right?
There are a few alignment settings or alignment angles that will cause your vehicle to pull. There are other settings that may not cause a pull but they will surely destroy a good set of tires in no time.
The angles that cause a pull are primarily Caster and Camber. Caster is the forward and aft tilt of the steering axis while Camber is the left to the right tilt of the steering axis. These may not be adjustable on all vehicles and some vehicles require special adjusting bolts, spacers, or arms to be installed to change these wheel alignment angles.
The angles that cause tire wear are Toe and Camber. Toe is the inward or outward pointing of the front of the tires. Think of pigeon-toed when you think of toe. If your toe setting is off then the tires will scrub along the road as you drive, this quickly wears out the tread on both tires.
Let us talk about tire wear and your vehicle’s alignment.
How often do wheel alignments need to be performed?
Often, a wheel alignment is recommended the same time new tires are installed. This occurs every 25,000-60,000 miles, so correcting any minor deviation from normal use is necessary. Lastly, if rotating the tires results in a drivability issue, you may be advised to perform an alignment.
