Expert Tire Care at Ron DuPratt Ford


If your vehicle drives straight down the road with no veering and vibration, you're wheels are probably aligned correctly. Regardless, it's always wise to have your alignment checked every year. A good time to do this is when you have your tires rotated, and everytie you have your tires replaced.

If you don't, you may start to that something isn't quite right when you drive or try to steer your car. You could find yourself drifting to one side or the other. It may start to seem harder to steer in the right direction or that the angle of your wheels is off.  You might find yourself having to angle your steering wheel away from center position to avoid veering off on the road at an angle. These are all strong indications that you need a wheel alignment. Maybe you hit a curb or pothole. Maybe you forgot to have your tires aligned when you last changed your tires.

If your tires are aligned correctly, your vehicle will travel straight and handle smoothly. Proper alignment also helps with your tire life, tire performance and gas mileage. A good rule of thumb is that your vehicle should have a wheel alignment every 30,000 miles, or whenever you purchase new tires.
