At New England Tire Car Care Centers in Attleboro MA, we sometimes have customers wonder how often a wheel alignment should be performed on their vehicle. Truth is, wheel alignments aren’t a routine-maintenance item that should be done at regular intervals.

Periodically check your car’s front tires. Uneven wear patterns on the inside or outside edge of a tire are a sure sign of a front end alignment that is out of spec. Also remember that this sort of wear will invalidate a tire warranty, and is not covered.
