A: A wheel alignment is a standard part of maintaining your vehicle in good condition. All cars and trucks need an alignment from time to time.
Some of the reasons your wheels might not be aligned properly are having an accident, hitting a curb, pot holes, speed bumps, driving on unpaved roads.
If you notice your vehicle pulling towards one side or the other, if it seem to drift in the lane, or if you notice you are gripping the wheel tightly, it is time to bring it in for a check up.
A full alignment usually only takes about 1-1/2 hours and will save you money in the long run by not wearing out your car parts and tires prematurely.
