Automotive wheel alignment actually has more to do with your vehicle’s suspension rather than your wheel’s as the name implies. A vehicles wheels are mounted to the suspension system in an effort to provide you with a smooth ride. A properly aligned vehicle and suspension system will absorb impacts and bumps from the road, making your ride smoother.
However, your vehicles suspension can be compromised, bend or shift for a variety of reasons. If this occurs one or more wheels will no longer travel in a straight path causing a decrease in handling capability, including making turning more difficult.
