Here at BMW Grand River, every Certified BMW Technician understands that when a wheel is off alignment by just 0.08 of a centimetre, each axle will scrub approximately 67cm sideways every kilometre – greatly reducing tire life. In wet road conditions, a misaligned wheel poses a potential danger because its tread is off-centre and cannot properly displace water, resulting in a loss of traction.
Misaligned wheels are often difficult to spot, because in many cases the symptoms aren’t noticeable until it is too late. The clearest indication of necessary wheel alignment is uneven wear on the tires, which generally is not distinguishable until the tires are worn beyond saving. The best practice is to have your alignment tested periodically, as this will prevent damage to tires. However, to check for yourself, you can use a coin and check tread depth on each side of your car’s tires. If one side is deeper than the other, your wheels are not aligned correctly. Next, carefully run your hand back and forth along the width of the tires. If the tread edges feel smooth in one direction but not the other, you are experiencing an issue that causes rapid tread wear.
