5 Signs That Suggest You Need a Wheel Alignment

Wheel alignments are necessary for protecting your tire life and your vehicle safety. Read on to learn more about when it's the right time to head to our auto shop for a wheel alignment. When you experience any of the symptoms below, please take your car to Taylormade Automotive Inc for a wheel alignment.

Steering Wheel Not Centered

After you make a turn, your steering wheel should naturally fall back to the center position. If it can’t get the steering wheel to its original position, it means your wheels are misaligned. You may also notice that the steering wheel looks off when driving straight.

Premature Tire Wear

If your tires are wearing down too quickly, it is often a result of poor tire maintenance. If you notice unusual tread patterns or bald spots, it's likely time for a wheel alignment service.

Car Pulling to One Side

If your vehicle keeps pulling left or right when driving straight, it is a tell-tale sign that your alignment is off. This can be very dangerous, as you lose a level of control over your vehicle. It can increase the risk of an accident, so please get your car to an auto repair shop right away.

Loose Steering

If your steering system feels loose or sloppy, it could be more than the steering component themselves. You should have your alignment checked to be safe.

Noisy Wheels

If your wheels make humming, or even grinding noises, it is never a good sign. When you accelerate, your car should be quiet for the most part. Please have your wheel’s alignment checked soon.
