5 Signs It's Time for a Wheel Alignment

If you're experiencing any of the five signs listed below, it's time to head to our auto shop for a wheel alignment. Ignoring these symptoms can lead to bigger and more expensive problems down the road.

Steering Wheel Not Returning to Center Position

There could be a problem if the steering wheel isn't returning to the center position after you turn. This can be especially noticeable when you're driving on a straight road and let go of the steering wheel for even just a second.

If it doesn't quickly return to the center or seems to be "stuck" in one position, it's time to get your car aligned.

Tires Wearing Down Quickly

You need a wheel alignment is if your tires are wearing down quickly. This can be due to several factors, but if you notice that your tires seem to be balding or developing unusual wear patterns, it's likely time for a realignment.

Car Pulling to One Side

If your car starts pulling to one side when you're driving, it could be a sign that the alignment is off. This can be dangerous, making it difficult to control the car and increasing the risk of getting into an accident.

If you notice your car pulling to one side, be sure to get it aligned as soon as possible.

Steering Feels Loose

Another sign that your car needs an alignment is if the steering feels loose or sloppy. This can make driving difficult and dangerous, so it's important to get it fixed right away.

Wheels Making Strange Noises

If you start to hear strange noises coming from your wheels, it could be a sign that the alignment is off. These noises can range from a light humming to a loud grinding and are usually most noticeable when you're driving at high speeds.

If you need a wheel alignment, we invite you to bring your vehicle into Gil's Garage inc of Half Moon today!
