How much does an alignment cost? The cost of an alignment depends on several factors: The number of wheels: A front-end alignment, which involves only the two wheels on the front of the car, typically costs anywhere from $50 to $75. Four-wheel alignments cost more, usually $100 to $168.
How long is an alignment supposed to last? For virtually all vehicles, it’s necessary to get your wheels aligned periodically. Most car experts recommend scheduling an alignment every other oil change, or approximately every 6,000 miles.
What are the signs that your car needs a wheel alignment?
- Uneven or rapid tire wear.
- Steering wheel being crooked when you are driving straight.
- Noisy Steering.
- Pulling to the right or left.
- Squealing tires.
How do I know if I need an alignment? Your car should have a relatively direct feel and response to the direction that you steer it. If you feel you are turning the wheel often with very little tire movement, you should have the alignment checked out. If your wheels are out of alignment, you may notice uneven tread wear.
