Keeping your car’s tires aligned is crucial to your car’s health while making driving more pleasurable. If you suspect your car is out of alignment, here are 4 warning signs to watch out for. As soon as you spot any of these issues, please contact Catlett’s Service Center & Towing for a service appointment. Our friendly technicians can have you back on the road in no time.
1. Worn Tires
When your car is out of alignment, more weight is placed on certain areas of the tires than others. This can lead to uneven wearing of your tires. Inspect your tires for more wear on one side than the other to tell if it is time for an alignment.
2. Crooked Steering Wheel
When driving straight, your hands should not have to do much work. If you find that you have to keep your wheel tilted one way or another constantly, it might mean that your car is out of alignment.
3. Pulling While Driving
If you notice a slight pull in one direction or another, you may have alignment issues. One sure way to tell is to remove your hands from the steering wheel (when no other vehicle is around of course!) and see if your car pulls toward the right or left.
4. Squeaky Sounds
Because of the constant pull in one direction over another, you may hear squeaky noises coming from your tires. This usually indicates that your car needs an alignment.
