Why does my car go out of alignment?

  • Potholes and road impact
  • Steering and suspension issues
  • Wear from aging suspension parts

How often should I get a wheel alignment?

  • Every six months or 6,000 miles for best performance
  • Regular wheel alignments will help maintain your investment by extending tire wear

Regular wheel alignments will help maintain your investment by extending tire wear. In addition to helping your tires last longer, having your tires properly aligned ensures your suspension remains in good working order. The suspension is made of a number of components that need to be in alignment for your vehicle to experience optimal handling and performance.

There are also several safety benefits associated with having your tires aligned. For example, your vehicle may pull to the left or right when it is not aligned, properly. You may also experience steering and suspension issues that may compromise your safety and control on the road. Having your vehicle set in place, your steering wheel centered, and all four wheels set parallel allows you to have a safer driving experience.

Wheel alignments, along with having the correct tire inflation, can also improve gas mileage. Tires that are under inflated by 20 percent can reduce your fuel economy by as much as ten percent. It can also reduce tread life by 15 percent. Midwest Auto Care will help with a free alignment check to make sure that all of your vehicle’s wheels are aligned, increasing the life of your steering system, suspension and tires. Sensors are attached to each wheel and data is disseminated. The camber, toe and caster will then be adjusted to match the manufacturer’s standards, which allow your car or truck to run properly.
