Does your car pull to one side or the other? Is your steering stiff or less responsive? Over time, bumps and dips in the road can jar your wheels out of alignment. If they aren’t facing front, the treading on your tires can be worn unevenly or scrubbed off, which can accelerate tire replacement. Alignments are recommended once every year depending on what the roads in your area are like, to ensure that your tires wear evenly.
