How Often to Get a Tire Alignment

Regular wheel alignments are crucial for maintaining your vehicle's performance and safety. We recommend having your alignment checked every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, or more frequently if you observe any of the following signs of misalignment:

  • Uneven Tire Wear: Check if one or more tires show signs of uneven wear patterns, such as excessive wear on the inside or outside edges.
  • Vehicle Pulling: If your vehicle tends to pull to one side while driving on a straight, flat road, it could indicate alignment issues.
  • Crooked Steering Wheel: A steering wheel that is off-center when driving straight is a common sign of misalignment.
  • Vibration or Steering Wheel Wobble: Vibrations felt through the steering wheel or unusual wobbling sensations may suggest alignment problems.
  • Squealing Tires: Misaligned wheels can cause tires to squeal, especially during turns or when maneuvering at low speeds.
  • Increased Fuel Consumption: Poor alignment can lead to increased resistance, resulting in higher fuel consumption over time.

If you notice any of these signs, it's crucial to schedule an appointment with your nearest automotive service center promptly. Ignoring these indicators can not only diminish your vehicle's performance but also lead to uneven wear on your suspension and tires, potentially compromising safety and shortening your vehicle's lifespan. At Chula Vista Ford, we prioritize your peace of mind by offering regular inspections and service for your vehicle.
