What is a Tire Alignment?

What the tire alignment does is adjusts the angle and position of your tires, so you can drive straight and true. When you drive, your tires will start to wear down. If out of alignment, the tread, which is the part that grips the road, is likely to wear down unevenly. If not taken care of, this could lead to unexpected blowouts. This is a sure sign that your tires need alignment. When your tires are aligned and balanced, it ensures they all wear evenly, so you get the most contact with the road. This leads to a safer drive.
