Have you ever been to a chiropractor? If you have, you'll soon understand why wheel alignments are so important.
If a chiropractor has not treated you to remove kinks or subluxations from your spine, you may not know how good it feels to get that sense of release. By eliminating the misalignments from your spine, the nerves are no longer pinched, causing dis-ease. When you ignore your spine's alignment, other problems in your body start to develop, like achy shoulders, a bad knee, and other things that cause pain in the body.
Believe it or not, wheel alignments are as important to your vehicle as an aligned spine. If you don't align your wheels, your car can develop systemic issues that wear out your tires. Poor alignment will also affect your ability to turn quickly, possibly create odd noises & funky vibrations (that aren't coming from your radio), and eventually reduce your vehicle's driveability. That is why, at CARSTAR Robert's Collision in Monterey, we always check the wheel alignment of any vehicle that comes to us for auto body repair.
When your vehicle is impacted in an accident -- whether major or minor -- that hit can throw off the factory-designed, precise calibrations that help your vehicle operate optimally. Additionally, many of today's modern cars have Automated Driving Assist Systems that help reduce your risk of getting into an accident. When the wheels are out of alignment, the sensors get thrown off and cannot protect you like they were designed to do. Therefore, wheel alignment is a critical component for the general safety of your vehicle.
Here’s a helpful video that illustrates the importance of wheel alignments:
