Misaligned wheels can be very costly due to the rapid excess wear of tyres. The overall safety, handling and fuel consumption of the vehicle is seriously reduced.
Modern cars have multiple angle adjustments for the wheels and they all need to be set correctly for the car to perform properly.
Wheel alignment can need adjusted for a number of reasons including hitting potholes in the road, mounting kerbs or excessive wear from steering & suspension components.
Also, if any suspension work or replacement has been carried out then the alignment MUST be checked afterwards, if your garage isn't doing this then they shouldn't be fixing your car.
Adjusting the wheel alignment involves checking the direction and angle of your wheels and adjusting it to the correct setting.
Drivers should monitor unusual tyre wear as this is a common sign of misaligned wheels.
If a tyre is wearing unevenly due to being misaligned those tyres will continue to wear unevenly throughout their life regardless of subsequent correct wheel alignment as the damage will already be done to the tread, they will however wear slower and the vehicles handling will be improved after being correctly aligned.
Tyre wear due to incorrect alignment and the different adjustable angles.
