In the simplest form, an alignment is the process of adjusting the angles of the vehicle’s wheels. Each of the vehicle’s wheels should be parallel with each other and perpendicular to the road. When your tires are not properly aligned, they will wear faster and you may experience steering or tracking problems.
The benefits of alignment include maximizing the life of your tires, improving gas mileage, increasing traction and a smoother drive.
Balancing usually deals with a vibration issue. Once your wheels are properly balanced, you will experience improved gas mileage, increased tread life for your tires, and optimal handling of your vehicle.
Car-X recommends that you keep your wheels in proper alignment and rotate your tires every 5,000 to 7,000 miles based on your manufacturer’s specifications. Both will help to equalize tread wear and extend the life of your tires and give you a smoother ride.
