It’s not uncommon for an automobile that is driven hundreds of kilometres a week to have its steering components and suspension shift out of alignment. What many may not know, is that improperly aligned wheels can result in an increased 2% cost of fuel and a 20% reduction in tire life. Improper vehicle alignment results in an increase in rolling resistance of the tires, essentially, the tires are dragging down the road as opposed to rolling down the road.
Professional wheel alignment ensures that your tires meet the road at the proper angle which increases the durability and efficiency of your tires. For optimal performance, proper alignment prevents your vehicle from pulling in different directions, creating a safer and more comfortable journey while maintaining fuel efficiency and decreasing uneven wear on the tires. When wheels are aligned correctly, they will be flat against the road and properly pointed. This is especially important for vehicles that travel long distances at high speeds.
