3 Reasons Why Aligning Your Tires is Important

3 Reasons Why Aligning Your Tires is Important

As you drive, your car's alignment can become a little ... well, off. This occurs when you hit pot holes, go over speed bumps, drive on unpaved roads or if your tires wear unevenly. Never fear! All you have to do is swing by the shop for a realignment and your car will be back to normal in no time. If you're not sure if keeping your car in alignment matters, here are three reasons why it does. 

Saves Fuel

Proper car maintenance can help you save fuel. If your air filter is dirty, if your car needs an oil change or if your tires are improperly aligned, your car will use more fuel. Taking the time to have your alignment checked and adjusted as needed helps to ensure you are not using more gas than you have to. This will help you save some cash at the pump! 

Prevents Tires from Wearing Faster

Another major benefit to having your tires properly aligned is that it helps prevent them from wearing faster than they should. Buying new tires is expensive, so it's probably not something you want to do unless you have to. When your vehicle's alignment is off, your tires wear improperly -- the tread may wear off one part of a tire, off of one single tire or off all of our tires.

Increases Driver and Passenger Safety

The last, and most important reason to have your car's alignment adjusted is that it helps ensure driver and passenger safety. If the alignment of your car is out of balance, you're more susceptible to a blowout than you would otherwise be. When a tire blows out, it's easy to lose control of your vehicle, which could result in an accident.
