Wheel Alignment is the practice of changing the angles of the wheels themselves to provide your vehicle with a smoother ride. You should have your wheels aligned every 11 to 14 months depending on the overall usage of your vehicle. If you run over a big pot hole or have an accident and feel your vehicle start to dip off to the left or right you should have your wheels aligned immediately to avoid any other future problem or accidents. If you let your wheels go unchecked this rapidly increase your tires wear on the road and then leading to you having to get a whole new set of wheels and tires.
