What Does Wheel Alignment Mean?
Here at Rush Automotive in Bastrop, Texas, we have one mission: to ensure your vehicle always runs smoothly and safely. One of the many services we offer is wheel alignment, a necessity when it comes to optimal and efficient driving dynamics. Unbeknownst to some, your wheels can actually become misaligned. This means that they aren’t positioned correctly. It can happen from parts wearing over time or breaking, or from driver error, such as jumping a curb or hitting a pothole too hard. From a technical standpoint, this service is needed when one of the wheel’s angles deviates from its placement: camber, caster, or toe. If one of these is knocked off even a few degrees from the manufacturer-recommended specifications, your driving will suffer in more ways than one. Proper wheel alignment means your vehicle handles and steers optimally and safely, and we are here to make sure your car drives straight and true at all times!
Signs You Need Wheel Alignment
Your vehicle’s alignment is designed to ensure proper handling, stability, and tire balance. If your wheels aren’t properly aligned, you will notice a negative shift in driving dynamics. One of the most common signs of wheel misalignment is drifting or pulling to one side without your input. For example, if your steering wheel starts to drift to the left or right once you let go of it—even when you are driving straight—your wheels are likely out of alignment. Similarly, you may notice a change in how your steering wheel acts. A crooked or off-centered steering wheel is often indicative of misalignment, as is steering wheel vibrations. In addition to driving feel and steering, pay attention to your tires. Tires are also an excellent source of letting you know that your wheels may be misaligned. For example, uneven or excessive tire wear is a red flag and should be addressed with our team. Your tires may also emit a squealing sound. When you visit us, we’ll do our due diligence and also take a look at the steering and suspension systems to ensure both have not been affected by the misalignment.
