1. What Is a Wheel Alignment?
A wheel alignment can sound deceptive as it’s really not about aligning the wheels. It’s actually an adjustment of the car’s suspension system which is connected to the wheels. When our mechanics adjust or align the suspension, they are changing how the wheels make contact with the road. An accurate alignment ensures the tires are perpendicular to the road and parallel to each other.
2. Why Does My Porsche Need an Alignment?
When the wheels of Porsche are not properly aligned, this can result in more than uneven wear and tear to the tires. A vehicle with improperly aligned wheels has reduced fuel economy which can lead to increased fuel costs. Your Porsche will experience less than optimal traction when driving on the road which can result in sliding, slipping, and skidding, especially during bad weather like rain, ice, or snow.
3. When Does My Porsche Need a Wheel Alignment?
