When Should You Get a Wheel Alignment?
In order to make sure that your tires do not wear excessively and your car handles properly, it is critical that you make sure your wheels are aligned. Typically, you should get a wheel alignment every 12 – 24 months, have your alignment checked when you rotate your tires, or get a wheel alignment every time you replace your tires. This ensures that your tires will wear evenly. It is also important to get an alignment when you perform any modifications to your suspension or wheels.
What is a Wheel Alignment?
A wheel alignment is the process of – you guessed it – aligning your wheels to one another, the vehicle and the ground into certain specifications from the manufacturer. Typically, specifications for your various measurements are defined in a range by the manufacturer with a center point and inner and outer limits. At Forest Lake Chrysler Dodge Jeep & Ram, we don’t just try to get your alignment within spec, we try to get your vehicle as centered within the range as possible for the best performance and safety. Check out some of the main measurements and adjustments of a wheel alignment.
Camber is an angular measurement that measures how far inward or outward the top of the wheel is compared to the bottom.
Caster is an angular measurement defined by the steering pivot points being either negative or positive.
Toe is the measurement of how far inward or outward the wheels are angled over a vertical axis.
When your vehicle is out of alignment, depending on the severity, you could very quickly wear through a new set of tires. A vehicle out of alignment will also put unnecessary stress on suspension components that could lead to premature part failure. Different wear patterns on your tires could help you identify how your vehicle is out of alignment; camber, toe, caster, or other. Misalignment will also cause your vehicle to handle differently than intended, which may lead to safety concerns. At Forest Lake Chrysler Dodge Jeep & Ram, we can help you get your wheels and tires back into alignment.
