Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Troy Auto Tips and Videos: Signs of An Alignment Problem

October 2, 2015

When properly aligned, all of your wheels are pointed in the same direction. Your vehicle will track true and handle the way it is designed. Troy drivers often associate our wheels being “knocked” out of alignment with an event like an accident, hitting a pothole, curb or some other object.

While these can certainly take your wheels out of alignment, the bumps and bounces of everyday Troy driving take their toll on wheel alignment as well.

In addition, your automobile  can lose alignment over time with just normal driving. When your wheels are out of alignment, Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Center Troy in Troy can return your wheels to the car maker factory settings. Most owners’ manuals suggest an alignment check every year or two.
