How Often Should I Have My Vehicle's Wheels Aligned?

At Elder Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Cedar Creek, we recommend that you have a wheel alignment service performed at least once a year or every 10,000 miles -- whichever comes first. This is because the bumps and jolts of day-to-day driving can slowly knock your wheels out of alignment. However, there are times when you should have your wheels aligned more often. If you have been in a fender bender, have hit a big pothole, or have run over a curb, it's best to have your wheels' alignment inspected since larger jolts like this can lead to misalignment. In addition, if you notice any symptoms of misaligned wheels, make your way to Elder Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Cedar Creek for wheel alignment service.


What Are the Different Types of Wheel Alignment?

  • Two-Wheel Alignment - Also known as a front-end alignment, two-wheel alignment is generally performed on vehicles with a solid rear axle; it involves inspecting and adjusting the camber, toe, and caster angles on the front wheels.
  • Four-Wheel Alignment - Vehicles with independent or semi-independent rear suspensions will need to have the camber, toe, and caster angles inspected and adjusted on all four wheels; this is also called an all-wheel alignment.

What Is Wheel Alignment?

They will then check the camber, toe, and caster angles of your wheels.

  • Camber - Refers to how the wheels are tilted inward or outward when viewed from the front. If they are tilted inward at the top, it is known as negative camber. Wheels that are tilted outward at the top are said to have positive camber.
  • Toe - Refers to the distance between the vehicle and the front and rear of the tires as viewed from above. If the wheels tilt towards the front, it is known as toe-in. Toe-out occurs when the wheels tilt towards the rear.
  • Caster - Refers to the slope of the steering axis. Almost all vehicles have a positive caster, but the precise angle can differ.
If our technicians find that your vehicle’s camber, toe, or caster angles are not precisely what they should be, it's time to get to work. Our certified technicians will use precision instruments to adjust whichever angle is improperly aligned, bringing it back to factory specifications.

What Are the Signs of Misaligned Wheels?

If you notice any of these symptoms, it's time to come to Elder Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM Cedar Creek for wheel alignment service:

  • Your vehicle pulls to the left or the right as you drive on a straightaway.
  • When you're driving on a straight road, your steering wheel is crooked.
  • The wheels squeal.

Improperly Aligned Wheels aren't Always Noticeable

As you can imagine, having to constantly correct the course can be tiring. It can also be dangerous since a moment of inattention can cause you to swerve. However, improperly aligned wheels aren't always noticeable. This is part of why we recommend annual alignment checks: sometimes, it may be difficult to notice misaligned wheels. This doesn't mean that they won't still cause problems, of course. If you drive for too long with wheels that are not properly aligned, your tires will begin to wear down unevenly, with one edge of the tire wearing down sooner than the other. This will make it necessary for you to have your tires changed sooner.
