It’s not uncommon for a truck that is driven thousands of miles a week to have its steering components and suspension shift out of alignment. What many may not know, is that improperly aligned truck wheels can result in an increased 2% cost of fuel and a 20% reduction in tire life. Improper wheel alignment results in an increase in rolling resistance of the tires, essentially, the tires are dragging down the road as opposed to rolling down the road.
Professional truck alignment ensures that your tires meet the road at the proper angle. Also known as wheel alignment, this increases the durability and efficiency of your tires. For optimal performance, proper truck alignment prevents your vehicle from pulling in different directions, creating a safer and more comfortable journey while maintaining fuel efficiency and decreasing uneven wear on the truck’s tires. When wheels are aligned correctly, they will be flat against the road and properly pointed. This is especially important for heavy-duty trucks that have higher work demands, heavy loads or drive long distances at high speeds.
