A wheel alignment is an important car maintenance service. When your car is misaligned, it may be more difficult to drive and it can cause damage to your tires. A wheel alignment helps ensure that your car drives straight without veering from side to side and aids in prolonging the tread life of your tires.
You should have a professional check your wheel alignment every six months or 6,000 miles or if your vehicle seems to be drifting to one side or the other. You may notice that your wheel alignment is off because your steering wheel is pointed in a direction in which your car is not moving or your vehicles seem to drift into other lanes.
If you’ve recently been in a car accident, encountered a few potholes, or noticed any signs of misalignment, it is a good idea to have your vehicle checked. You can take your vehicle to your local Mavis to have an alignment check.

A wheel alignment is a service offered to ensure that your vehicle is driving straight and that your wheels are aligned with the axle. When your wheels are not aligned, it can affect tire wear causing you to have to replace your tires much sooner and lead to more auto repair. Proper wheel alignment helps keep your vehicle in good condition, helping to maintain your tires, gas mileage, and allowing you to get more miles out of your tires.
If your car needs a wheel alignment service, you may notice that your vehicle is drifting to one side or that your steering wheel is not centered. Some other signs include:
Uneven tire tread wear
Vehicle pulling to the left or right
Your steering wheel appears to be off center when driving straight
Vibration in the steering wheel (due to uneven tire wear)
When your wheel alignment is off, you will notice that your vehicle is pulling one way or the other. You may also notice uneven tread, along with steering wheel vibration. It may also be noticeable that your vehicle and steering wheel are not pointed in the same direction while driving. If you notice any of these issues, it may be time for wheel alignment services.
