At Big A Auto Sales & Service, we recognize just how damaging and dangerous a misaligned vehicle can be. From reducing the control you have on your vehicle to rapidly wearing out the tires, there are numerous negatives that come from misalignment. So if you ever hit a pothole or road debris and suspect misalignment in your vehicle, visit our facility in Dubuque, Iowa and let our auto professionals help realign your vehicle. Our skilled technicians utilize state-of-the-art realignment tools to help ensure your vehicle’s wheels meet the road at the perfect angle. We’ll help ensure your vehicle is always providing you with a smooth driving experience!
If you suspect wheel misalignment in your vehicle, the first thing you should check for is uneven tire wear. Does the wear on the front set of tires look different than the back set? Or maybe all the tires have different tread wear? If you see this in your vehicle’s tires, there’s a great chance that it is suffering from misalignment. Although this is never an ideal situation, this is also one of the safer ways to determine misalignment. You should schedule a service with us as soon as this is noticed.
Another thing you can look out for if you suspect wheel misalignment is pulling. Is the steering wheel positioned in strange angles? Are you having to fight your vehicle just to keep it straight? If any of these are true, that’s another sign that your vehicle is dealing with misalignment issues. This symptom can be dangerous to drive with, as you won’t have full control of your vehicle, so we recommend a realignment service immediately.
Professional Tip: if you aren’t sure if your vehicle is pulling or not, simply take it out to a flat, empty parking lot and test it! While driving slowly and the steering wheel in a neutral position, release the steering wheel. If you see that the vehicle is slightly drifting in one direction instead of staying straight, that’s the sign that you’re dealing with pulling.
