Alignments

wheel alignmentYour wheels should stay as straight as possible whenever you drive to ensure a smooth, safe ride. Over time, the wheels on your vehicle can become misaligned which can cause a wide array of issues. For your alignment needs, bring your vehicle to Padron Automotive in Topeka, KS where we’ll make sure that everything lines up as it should.

There can be a number of reasons why your vehicle goes out of alignment. One of the most common causes is driving over potholes and through construction sites frequently. Whenever your car goes over a bump or an obstruction, it causes the wheels to get out of alignment. Over time, the issue gets worse, leading to steering and control problems. Other causes of a vehicle misalignment include you general driving habits and driving conditions. During rough weather, it can create a bumpy ride resulting in off-kilter wheel alignment.

When your alignment is out of whack, it can make driving a lot less pleasant. You may notice that your car seems to veer to one side or that turning tight corners is more difficult. Other signs of a misaligned vehicle include the feeling of drifting and a feeling of losing control of the steering wheel. But alignments aren’t just important for the way your car feels when you drive. Misaligned wheels can also cause excessive wear and tear on the tread of your tires. When the tire tread gets worn down, it can lead to a blowout or an accident. It’s also a lot more expensive to replace your tires than it is to get an alignment!

An alignment service is quick and easy, and it’s much more affordable than other forms of repair. Ideally, you should have your vehicle aligned every few thousand miles or every few months. If you drive over a lot of potholes or you drive through tons of roadwork, you may need to get an alignment more often. When your wheels are perfectly aligned, your car will run smoothly and you should also get better fuel economy. It’s one of the best ways you can be proactive to ensure that you get the most from your car.
