When to Get a Wheel Alignment


It's not always easy to tell, but there are a couple of signs to watch out for that indicate that you need a wheel alignment. Some of these are more extreme than others, but if you notice any, bring your vehicle into a professional in the Norwich area as soon as possible. These indicators include:

  • Vehicle Pulling to the Left or Right
  • Steering Wheel is Off-Center When Driving Straight
  • Uneven Tread Wear
  • Steering Wheel Vibration

These issues can be attributed to three different categories: camber, toe, and caster. Camber is the inward or outward angle of the tire when viewed from the front of the vehicle. Imagine looking at your tires from the front of the vehicle at two rectangles. If they are tipping toward or away from the vehicle, this is a matter of camber.

Toe refers to how much your wheels are turned in or out from a top-down perspective, which is different from camber. This can be visualized from the orientation of your feet. When your feet are pointing in or out is the same as the toe on your car.

Finally, caster refers to the angle of the steering axis when looking at your vehicle from the side. For better steering, stability, cornering in the Mansfield area, you want your steering axis angle to be at 12 o' clock instead of 11 or 1.
