There are many factors which can cause your vehicles wheels to become misaligned and for the most part, most people don’t notice.
Typically, hitting a pothole may mis-align your wheels and you may notice this immediately. Longer term alignment issues are mostly caused by kerbing (parking up on a kerb), bad driving habits like braking in corners, not keeping your tyre pressures at the correct level, driving with damaged suspension and overloading the vehicle but to name a few.
In general, driving itself will cause your wheels to become misaligned over a period of time which is why it’s important to get your wheels aligned regularly.
The effects of bad alignment come in many forms and are usually visible on your tyres. We have provided an in-depth visual guide here so you can see our list of causes, solutions and benefits.
