Un-aligned wheels cause uneven pressure on the tyres. They push against each other. This causes the car to face uneven friction and much more resistance from the road surface meaning that your car has to work harder to move forward and more fuel is burned than normal.
When the wheels are aligned properly the there is much less resistance from the road surface resulting in, not only a smoother drive but, noticeable savings on your fuel receipts.
More resistance to the road surface means more pressure on the rubber of your tyres. That leads to quicker and uneven wear and tear on the tires resulting in a rougher ride and poor handling.
Not only is it dangerous to drive on uneven tyres, it also means that you have to spend on new tyres sooner.
Does your car pull itself to one side all the time? This can be due to faulty wheel alignment. You probably know how difficult it is to drive on a wet or iced road even with perfectly aligned wheels. With badly aligned wheels, you are taking on unneccassary risk. Is it worth having an accident and endangering the lives of loved ones? A little money spent once in a while getting your wheels aligned can bring you peace of mind.
Having a car with badly aligned wheels also leads to other connected problems. Your brake shaft does not work to optimal levels. The tendency to pull to one side due to uneven tires causes problems in the steering system. It also leads to uneven braking. Improper wheel alignments or not having your wheels aligned will also affect the suspension of your car. The suspension in a car is made up of complicated and delicately balanced parts, and it is important that it should be perfect.
If you find that when your steering is pointing straight forward and the car veers to the right or left, that is an indicator of a necessary wheel alignment. Another indicator is when you find that one tyre is worn more than another.
The thumb rule is that you should get you wheels aligned once every 6000 miles or 6 months, whichever is earlier. You should also get your wheels aligned or at least checked by a professional if you have hit something large enough to cause alignment issues.
Note that wheel alignment is not the same as wheel balancing and tracking. Wheel balancing is simply adjusting the balance between the tire and the rim. It is important not to get confused between the two.
