Over time, even in normal driving conditions, your truck will slip out of alignment due to the constant pressure on shocks and springs, in addition to dramatic jolting impacts such as hitting curbs or potholes. This happens for an 18 wheeler just as easily as it happens for any other truck.
Here are a few common signs that your commercial or semi truck needs a wheel alignment:
- Uneven or rapid tire wear
- Excessive tire vibrations
- Consistent squealing from tires
- Your handling feels loose when driving
- Your vehicle pulls to one side or another
- Your steering wheel is not centered and is crooked when driving straight
Proper wheel alignment on your truck will allow your tires to last longer, improve your fuel economy, and allow for a smoother and safer ride.
