Proper Alignment for Your Wheels

If you're driving around Warwick, RI and noticing that your car vibrates or shakes at high speeds, you could have an alignment issue on your hands. Bald Hill Kia recommends that alignment problems get addressed as soon as possible to help prevent the development of other problems in the future.

The alignment of a car's wheels is measured by the camber, caster, and toe of each of the tires. These three measurements will determine if the tires are properly aligned relative to the frame of the car and each other. If one or more of the tires are off, it will cause excess stress on the bearing and could make them wear out. Improper alignment is also associated with uneven tire wear.

If you drive on rough roads or ones with potholes, getting your alignment checked regularly is important. Wheels can get knocked out of place from hard hits.
