Maximizing Tire Life - The Effects Of Suspension And Steering Systems
Keep the car's suspension and steering systems in good working order.
Worn suspension and steering components will wear tires.
When you have the vehicle aligned, have these components checked for integrity.
An alignment is only as good as the parts that are being aligned.
A technician can spend all day setting a front end to perfect specifications.
However, if the parts are worn than the alignment is going to be worthless because the tires will track this way and that, wearing rubber off as you roll down the highway.
