Proper Alignment for a Car

When the car or truck that you're driving around starts to shake at higher speeds, there might be a problem with the alignment of the wheels. Volvo Cars Normal understands the damage that poorly aligned wheels can cause and recommends regular inspections to ensure straight and properly aligned wheels.

The camber, caster, and toe angles are all used to measure the position of a tire compared to the frame of the car. Each angle should fall within the manufacturer's specifications for the car or truck. Properly aligned wheels will provide a smooth and straight ride at any speed.

Driving on rocky roads or hitting potholes can cause wheels to go out of alignment. When this happens, extra pressure can be put on the bearings that can cause them to wear down quickly. Uneven tire wear is also a result of poorly aligned tires and can cause thin spots.
