Automotive Tips from S T Foreign Auto Service: Causes of Wheel Misalignment

Posted October 6, 2019 10:28 AM

When properly aligned, all of your wheels are pointed in the same direction. Your vehicle will track true and handle the way it is designed. Syracuse drivers often associate our wheels being “knocked” out of alignment with an event like a major crash, hitting a pothole, curb or some other object. While these can certainly take your wheels out of alignment, the bumps and bounces of everyday Syracuse driving take their toll on wheel alignment as well. Your car can lose alignment over time with just normal driving.

When your wheels are out of alignment, the team of automotive professionals at S T Foreign Auto Service in Syracuse can return your wheels to the factory settings. Most owners’ manuals suggest an inspection every year or two.

Give us a call.
