Driving on bumpy roads can affect your vehicle in several ways. Among them, it can bounce your tires out of alignment. If you regularly drive down poorly maintained roads or you have hit a pothole lately, you should have a technician check your vehicle’s wheel alignment. The most common indicators of misalignment include pulling to one side while you are driving, an off-center steering wheel and/or uneven tire wear. In order to avoid these issues, we recommend having your wheels aligned every time you get a new set of tires, or after any significant impact with a curb, ditch or bump. Its also advised to get your car’s alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so.
A wheel alignment consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. If it has been a while since you had your alignment checked and want this work done by highly trained professionals, you have come to the right place. At Colonial Toyota, we gladly provide this service for our valued Milford-area customers.
A regular wheel alignment ensures optimal drivability from your car. Among all the benefits, it maximizes the life of your tires, avoiding a sooner replacement due to irregular wear. It also helps your vehicle drive smoother, which means no more battling with the steering wheel to keep the car straight. Last but not least, a balanced wheel alignment improves fuel economy since your car requires less energy to keep moving.
