What causes wheels to become misaligned?

The impact of an accident, even a small fender bender, is one cause of wheel misalignment. Wheel alignment can be affected by hitting a curb, a pothole or encountering a speed bump at too high a speed. The alignment of your wheels is always changing. Bumpy roads and wear and tear in steering and suspension systems are contributing factors. These changes often go unnoticed because they are small and develop slowly over time. It is not uncommon for wheels to become misaligned within 12 to 18 months.

What are the benefits of proper wheel alignment?                              

Maintaining proper wheel alignment is fundamental to keeping your car running both efficiently and safely. Poorly aligned wheels cause your tires to wear unevenly and will need to be replaced more often. Left unchecked, unevenly worn tires can become a safety hazard. Additional benefits of correctly aligned wheels include reduced stress on suspension parts, enhanced vehicle stability, and improved braking conditions.
