Suffering From Misalignment?
Driving a vehicle with misalignment issues not only is dangerous but can also cause additional damage to your vehicle. To avoid that, It’s important to understand the signs of misalignment. Understanding some signs will help inform you for when you need to bring your vehicle into our shop. Don’t know what to look for? Kirkwood Auto Center is here to help you. Here are some easy signs of misalignment that you should be wary of!
Uneven Tire Wear
Uneven tire wear is a clear sign of wheel misalignment and is easy to pinpoint. When looking at your tires, you want to look at it in two sets — the front and back. If the front set of tires have the same wear patterns as the back, then the wheels are aligned. If not, you’re probably dealing with misalignment.
Pulling or Vibrating
Pulling is when your vehicle drifts one way or the other without direction from you. If you notice pulling or vibrating, that is a clear sign of wheel misalignment. You can test for pulling by going into an empty parking lot and, while slowly driving, letting go of your steering wheel. If it starts drifting one way or the other, you’re dealing with pulling. As for vibrations, you’ll typically feel this on your steering wheel. This is a result of your wheels pulling in opposite directions of each other. Both of these can be due to a misalignment or an underinflated tire, so make sure you check your tire’s PSI when determining the problem!
