2016 BMW 320i xDrive Wheel Alignment

How Does BMW 320i xDrive Alignment Work?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your BMW 320i xDrive's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. When your car has an alignment service, the individual angles of your tires are adjusted so that they come into contact with the road in just the right way — the way BMW intended them to. When your system is aligned to the measurements that BMW specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: your ride is smoother, the lifespan of your tires increases, and there’s less strain put on your car’s suspension system. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2016 BMW 320i xDrive, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from BMW. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When Should I Get BMW 320i xDrive Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your BMW 320i xDrive alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2016 BMW 320i xDrive: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. Unlike with other potential issues, you won’t see any dashboard warning lights in your 320i xDrive if your wheel alignment needs attention.

How Much Does an Alignment for BMW 320i xDrive Cost?

On a budget? BMW 320i xDrive wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. In the long run, it could actually help you save money. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas.
