When you buy new tires, they will be balanced and aligned. These processes help to minimize vibration from your tires and make it easier to steer your car and keep it from pulling to one side or the other. Typically, you won’t need your tires balanced again, unless you experience increased vibration in your car, especially when you’re turning. If that occurs, make an appointment for tire service to determine the cause. Generally, you should get an alignment every 6,000 miles, but talk to the specialist about vehicle-specific recommendations. You should also consider an alignment if you notice that your car is pulling to the side when you drive.
