Why Does Tire Alignment Service Matter?

October 5th, 2022 by

There are many important parts of your vehicle that need to be maintained on a regular basis to ensure it runs properly and safely. Chief among them is your tires, which are crucial to the function of your car. Here’s why tire alignment in particular is so important, and why you may be due for a wheel alignment service at Serra Subaru Champaign.

What Is Wheel Alignment?

There are several parts of your tire’s health that you may or may not be aware of. Tire pressure and tire tread are probably the most common factors that people are familiar with. But tire alignment is a totally separate factor.

Tire alignment relates to your car’s suspension. Proper alignment means that all your tires meet the road at the proper angle, your wheels are pointing straight, and the tires are centered in your car’s wheel wells.

Why Does It Matter?

  • Safety – Cars with tires that are out of alignment can cause several risks to your driving experience.
  • Smoother ride – Imbalanced tires or uneven tread on your tires caused by misalignment can cause issues like vibration from your steering wheel or the car itself.
  • Longer lifespan – Getting regular wheel alignment service will not only prolong the lifespan of your tires, but it will also protect your car’s suspension by avoiding unnecessary wear from vibration.
