Does your steering wheel completely correct itself if you let go while coming out of a turn? If you answered “no” to that question, then it may be time to have your wheel alignment corrected. The example just given can be an extreme case but it is important to make sure that your wheels are properly aligned for several reasons.
Gas Mileage is one of them. When your wheels are misaligned then that means your engine has to work harder because your vehicle is less efficient on the road which can cut down out your MPG and you don’t want to spend any more time or money at the pump than you have to.
Life of your tires. The life of your tires is directly dependent on how quickly your tire tread wears down. This will happen even faster with wheels that are out of alignment because they are not being evenly exposed to the road which will lead to uneven wear patterns eventually making them unsafe to drive on.
Power steering and suspension. You might be getting that idea that more is riding on your wheels being aligned than your ability to hold your steering wheel straight when it pulls to the left or right. Let’s put it this way, your vehicle is a finely tuned machine and when one system is not operating as efficiently as it could, it tends to put stress on other systems which increases wear and tear.
