Wheel alignment service in Midland Odessa

Alignment Service

Driving a fresh, new Subaru is a fantastic feeling. The smoothness of the drive with all the latest features in a nearly no-mileage 2021 Outback or athletic WRX makes you feel as though you can take on every road. A few months later, you notice that your vehicle is experiencing some minor vibrations, weakened cornering power, or takes you more effort to keep it going in a straight line. Chances are that as a result of normal wear and tear, your tires have fallen out of alignment. Even when you avoid minor accidents or heavy use, your tires can still experience misalignment, which can cause substantially worse problems down the line. At Subaru of Midland-Odessa, we are ready to help you keep your vehicle operating at its best, and to inform you of our essential vehicle services including tire rotations.

Wheel Misalignment

There are a few things that may arise that can lead to misaligned wheels. For many, standard wear and tear on your vehicle is the main cause of your wheels falling out of alignment. This usually takes several thousand miles of driving, or may occur over the course of a few months. In this case, changes in how your car drives tend to be very gradual over time. Other causes include a sudden jarring impact on your vehicle such as a collision or even just suddenly bumping into a curb. Drivers that modify their wheels, height, or suspension on their vehicle may also experience wheel misalignment.

While you may be slow to notice changes in your vehicle's performance, a quick look at the symptoms can quickly lead to the realization that you may be experience tire misalignment. These signs may include:

  • Uneven wear on your tires
  • Unexplained drifting of your vehicle to the left or right
  • Difficulty returning steering wheel to position after a turn
  • Crooked or vibrating steering wheel

Having your tires in misalignment long-term can cause substantial damage to your vehicle. This includes uneven wear and tear on your tires, which may lead to sudden tire blowouts. Having misaligned tires can also massively decrease your vehicle's performance along with its fuel efficiency.
