The Importance of Wheel Alignment

A wheel alignment is an adjustment to your vehicle's suspension rather than an adjustment to the tires or wheels themselves, altering how your wheels contact the road. Wheel alignments require advanced equipment and expert knowledge, so they aren't something that you can perform on your own. At Towne Toyota, we have the expertise and means for expert wheel alignments.

Explore the following common indicators that could mean you need a wheel alignment and discover the importance of wheel alignments.


Indicators of Needing a Wheel Alignment


Steering Wheel Vibration

If you are experiencing excessive vibrations when holding the steering wheel, it most likely means that the front wheels are unaligned. Uncontrollable wobbling can indicate that your vehicle has a poor wheel alignment.


Uneven Tire Wear

Uneven contact with the road can cause uneven tire wear, creating "cupping." Also known as scalloping, tires with uneven tire wear can lead to a shorter tire lifespan and even tire blowouts.


Vehicle Pulling to the Left or Right

If you can feel your vehicle pulling to the right or left when driving, this is often an issue of wheel alignment. Another way of testing this is if your steering wheel is off-center when driving straight on a flat surface.

How Wheel Alignments Work

There are three factors that or mechanics consider when performing a wheel alignment: caster, camber, and toe. By looking at these different perspectives, our technicians can ensure that your wheels are aligned from every angle to ensure that your wheels have even contact with the road. Having your wheels aligned helps your tires wear evenly and optimizes your handling.
