Routine maintenance can lead us to discover all kinds of things you would think are obvious but as drivers with a routine, we simply get in and drive. We may think that if the lights come on and the car starts there are no issues, but at Autoworks in Ithaca we know what to look for and when to ask questions. When your vehicle is pulling to one side there are several possibilities.
If your rim causes your tire to leak air, your truck or car alignment will most certainly be affected which could result in uneven tire tread wear. Depending on how bad it is, there can be other damages as well.
The good news is that we can take care of it when you stop by the shop for your service visit. If we catch the issue in time then we avoid higher repair costs by doing a simple repair and getting you on your way.
The bad thing is that if you have driven it too long avoiding your scheduled oil changes and service visits, you could be overlooking serious damage to your drive train, 4x4 components, and uneven tire tread wear as well. Serious damage means higher costs and no one wants that!
Always look at your vehicle when you hit something unexpectedly or damage the rim of your wheel. Actually, it's a good idea for you to take a look at your car or truck often just to see if anything is out of order, like a headlight or wiper blades not working. If you have any questions at all, a simple stop at our shop in Ithaca will ensure there are no issues and you can drive away safe and happy.
