Let Jackson Automotive Get Your Tires Lined Up Just Right
When you are driving your car down I-75, does your car veer to one side or the other on its own? If it does, then your wheel alignment might be off. The uneven alignment on your vehicle can cause your tires to wear on one side of the tire more than the other. When this happens, the side that is touching the road wears down faster than normal causing you to have to get your tires rotate or buy a whole new set of tires. Wear on tires can cause you to get a flat or have a blowout. If you suspect your tires are out of alignment visit Jackson Automotive's Service Center. Our friendly technicians can run diagnostic and evaluate your tires and alignment. We will advise you on your best course of action. Save money on tire alignment with our Specials.
How Do Wheels Lose Their Alignment?
There are so many ways that your wheels can get misaligned because, in reality, it doesn't take much.
Wheel alignment can be thrown off by:
- General wear and tear
- Pot holes
- Hitting the curb
- Bumping in concrete parking stalls
- Car accidents
One of the biggest reasons why it is so easy to misalign your wheels is because the alignment is measured in tenths and hundredths of degrees or inches. However, it is important to get your vehicle back into alignment to keep you safe and to keep you from spending unnecessary money on new tires.
When Do I Need a Wheel Alignment?
It is recommended that you get your alignment looked at every other time that you go in for an oil change, just to be sure everything is looking straight. However, you can get away with having them realigned every year when your tires are normally being rotated. It is also strongly advised to get your alignment checked when you get a new set of tires to make sure that you do not wear down the new set of tires too quickly.
If you want to check the alignment yourself, have in mind that each model of every brand of vehicle has a different alignment, which would make it hard to compare between two different vehicles on your own. That's why it is recommended that you have your alignment checked by a professional with the right technology and tools for the job.
