Why Is BMW 230i xDrive Alignment Important?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your BMW 230i xDrive’s suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. During the service, calculated changes are made to the angles of your tires. This is so that your tires hit the road at an optimal angle for your vehicle’s performance — just as BMW intended. When the system is aligned to BMW specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. Three good things happen as a result: your car handles better, the lifespan of your tires increases, and your suspension system experiences less strain. Bring your 2018 BMW 230i xDrive in for a wheel alignment and we'll start with an alignment check. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from BMW. Plus, we’ll check to make sure your tire pressure is at an optimal level.

How Often to Get Wheel Alignment Service for Your BMW 230i xDrive

It's a good idea to have your BMW 230i xDrive alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Even one misaligned wheel can wreak havoc on your fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2018 BMW 230i xDrive: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or squealing tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your 230i xDrive dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does It Cost for Alignment Service on My BMW 230i xDrive?

BMW 230i xDrive wheel alignment doesn't cost as much as you might think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Properly aligned wheels may help increase fuel efficiency and tire lifespan, so you can fill up less often, plus get more miles out of your tires. Optimal wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs in the future. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2018 BMW 230i xDrive wheel alignment estimate.
