The Importance of Car Alignments

Have you ever wondered what makes a car alignment important? We asked Bryan Weber of Weber Automotive this question to get down to the answers. Here are some of the important reasons to get a car alignment…

  1. Pre-mature wear on your tires. 
  2. Extending the life of your tires.
  3. Tires can range from $400.00 - $1000.00 to replace so a simple alignment can save you costs. 
  4. Fuel consumption is another reason to get an alignment. Yes, you can actually save fuel with a properly aligned set of tires. 

Technical Reasoning Behind a Tire Alignment

If your anything like us, your usually skeptical when it comes to unnecessary expenditures and a tire alignment sounds like it’s just one of those unnecessary maintenance costs you can live without. If you think of yourself walking with your feet pointed inwards rather than normal, not only do you slow down on how you walk but you’re would also wear out your shoes much faster. 

That slowing down in your walk is similar to stressing out our engine a bit more because It’s essentially dragging the wheels more than rolling them. And that misalignment is also running your rubber down on your wheels much faster. 

Consider the Safety Factor of a Bad Alignment

So, we’ve covered the expenditures of a bad alignment. We’ve also covered the additional hidden costs associated with a bad alignment, consider the safety factors of a bad alignment. 

If your wheels are wearing down and you’re the type that doesn’t consider taking your car into the shop, you could find yourself with a flat tire.
