When to Get a Hyundai Tire Alignment in Springfield, IL

Has your auto technician recommended tire alignment at your most recent maintenance appointment? If you've never heard of this procedure before, and are unsure what it means, we can help clear up this mystery.

Tire alignment refers to an adjustment of the suspension to correct the angle your tires point when the steering wheel is straight, not an adjustment of the actual tires on your car. A tire alignment can help improve the handling of a car - picture how hard it is to push a shopping cart with a crooked wheel, and then imagine what affect the same situation has on your car!

What are signs you need a tire alignment?

  • Steering wheel vibration
  • Vehicle pulling to the left or right
  • Steering wheel off-center when driving straight
  • Uneven tire tread wear

Your tires can become misaligned over time, but they can also suddenly become misaligned if you hit a curb or run over a pothole. Misaligned tires can have an impact on fuel economy and wear out your tires faster than usual. To learn if your tires need realignment, schedule a service appointment at the service center at Green Hyundai. Our experienced technicians can inspect your tires to learn if you need tire alignment services, and perform the procedure quickly and easily so you can get back to driving with confidence.
