If you are not sure if you need an alignment, Kurth’s Auto Repair has the proper equipment to check your vehicle of a misalignment and the expertise to correct it if needed.
Road Conditions Can Affect Wheel Alignment
You are driving down the road and you hit a pothole or even worse, you hit the curb. In the same manner, you are always driving on poorly maintained roads and highways. Whether you realize it or not, all of these things can greatly affect your wheel alignment. Even the slightest misalignment can advance the uneven wear on your tires. Sometimes it is difficult to notice it. We recommend getting your alignment checked around every 6,000 miles. In fact, you should have it as part of your scheduled maintenance.
Why Do I Need An Alignment?

Keeping your tires aligned will also help with your vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Besides, it is less expensive to keep your wheels aligned than having to replace tires before their life expectancy is reached.
Do New Tires Need Alignment?
