When it comes to vehicle maintenance, owners need to think about proper wheel alignment. Wheel alignment is responsible for the wheels on your vehicle contacting the road at a consistent and uniform angle. If misaligned, it can affect a variety of other aspects in your vehicle which include handling, tire wear, fuel efficiency, and overall vehicle performance (just to name a few). You’ll find yourself visiting your local auto repair shop a lot sooner than you’d expect if the problem isn’t fixed.

If, when driving in a safe area, you let go of the steering wheel and notice that your vehicle is pulling towards a specific side, it means that your wheels are misaligned. When this happens, you should visit our shop as soon as possible. Letting the issue continue will have you fighting your steering wheel as you drive and increase the chances of getting in an accident.
This one can be scary and dangerous. If your wheel starts to vibrate, especially at higher speeds, then that’s another sign that your wheels are misaligned.
One of the easiest (and safest) ways to determine misaligned wheels is to simply check your tires! If the tire wear is uneven throughout your tires (or at least the front two tires) then it is a clear sign of misaligned wheels. We suggest this method over others because you’re not on the road!
Driving with misaligned tires can damage your vehicle and, more importantly, it can leave you and your passengers in harm’s way. That’s why when you come in for a wheel alignment, you deserve the best auto care possible. That’s where Brown’s Automotive comes in.
