The Importance of Wheel Alignments




In the fast-paced world of automotive maintenance, there's a key factor that often goes unnoticed until problems appear -- wheel alignments. Your vehicle's wheels are more than just round objects that keep you moving; they play a crucial role in ensuring your safety, extending the lifespan of your tires, and creating an enjoyable driving experience.


This is true whether you drive an electric vehicle, a hybrid or an ICE vehicle.


Here, at Lacombe Quick Lane, we understand the significance of a properly aligned set of wheels, and that's why we offer a comprehensive wheel alignment checks. If we find that an alignment is needed, the cost of the check is on the house!


The Basics of Wheel Alignment


Even though you drive an electric vehicle, you need to make sure your wheels are properly aligned. A wheel alignment refers to the adjustment of your vehicle's suspension system -- the connection between the vehicle and its wheels. Proper alignment ensures that your wheels are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground.


Over time, factors such as potholes, rough roads, or even regular wear and tear can cause your wheels to fall out of alignment. With electric vehicles being heavier than the average ICE vehicle, these factors can be exasperated without proper maintenance.


Misaligned wheels can lead to a variety of issues, ranging from uneven tire wear to unnecessary wear down of other parts in the suspension.


Signs Your Wheels Need Attention


1. Uneven Tire Wear: If you notice that your tires are wearing down unevenly, it could be a clear indicator of misaligned wheels. This can include wear on the outer or inner sides as well.


2. Vehicle Pulling: If your vehicle tends to drift to one side even when you're driving straight, it might be time for a wheel alignment check. This pulling sensation can be subtle at first but can worsen over time.


3. Steering Wheel Off-Center: A noticeable misalignment can cause your steering wheel to be off-center, indicating that your wheels are not pointing in the right direction.
