Automotive Tips from Hal's Auto Clinic Farmington Hills: Causes of Wheel Misalignment

July 10, 2022

When properly aligned, all of your wheels are pointed in the same direction. Your vehicle will track true and handle the way it is designed. Farmington Hills drivers often associate our wheels being “knocked” out of alignment with an event like a major crash, hitting a pothole, curb or some other object. While these can certainly take your wheels out of alignment, the bumps and bounces of everyday Farmington Hills driving take their toll on wheel alignment as well. Your car can lose alignment over time with just normal driving.

When your wheels are out of alignment, the team of automotive professionals at Hal's Auto Clinic Farmington Hills in Farmington Hills can return your wheels to the factory settings. Most owners’ manuals suggest an inspection every year or two.
