With an alignment service, adjustments are made to your Kia Optima’s suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Kia. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When the system is aligned to Kia specifications, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. Three good things happen as a result: you enjoy a smoother ride, the treads on your tires can wear more evenly, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2017 Kia Optima, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Kia recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.
To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Kia Optima alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and over time can lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2017 Kia Optima: a pull to one side while the car is in motion, excessive wear on only one tire, a crooked steering wheel when driving straight, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Optima dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
Let’s talk numbers: Kia Optima wheel alignment might be more budget-friendly 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, 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 2017 Kia Optima wheel alignment estimate.
