The alignment of your wheels may be one of the last things on your mind, but when your alignment is off, you will feel the effects. Some of the signs that it is time to have your wheels aligned include:
- Pulling to the left or the right
- A crooked or off center steering wheel
- Uneven or accelerated tread wear on your tires
- A decrease in gas mileage
