How to Tell If Your Vehicle Needs a Wheel Alignment in Duluth, GA


Worn or damaged suspension parts result in misaligned wheels and can be costly to drivers in a variety of ways. That’s why Acura Carland in Duluth, Georgia wants to make sure our customers know how to spot the signs that your vehicle may be in need of an alignment. Issues like uneven tire wear can lead to replacing tires sooner than anticipated and lessened fuel efficiency are some of the more common results of wheel misalignment. Symptoms of misaligned wheels include:


  1. Uneven Tire Wear: Check to see if your front tires appear to have the same wear patterns. Do the same for the back tires. When having your vehicle services, you can ask your mechanic to check the tread and let them spot alignment issues as well.

  2. Vehicle Pulling In One Direction: Note that this can also be caused by under inflated tires. Once you check your tire pressure to ensure it is correct, if the vehicle still pulls in one direction, it is a sign you might need to have your alignment evaluated.

  3. Steering Wheel Vibration: Vibration can be a result of your tires pulling in opposite directions of each other. Keep in mind that this can also be caused by unbalanced tires.

  4. Crooked Steering Wheel: Always pay close attention to your steering wheel. You might be correcting for a misalignment by driving with your steering wheel off-center.
