2018 Kia Optima Wheel Alignment

How Does Kia Optima Alignment Work?

Alignment services involve precise adjustments to your Kia Optima’s suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the vehicle. When your car has an alignment 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 Kia intended. When your suspension is aligned to Kia’s optimal measurements, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: you enjoy a smoother ride, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and significant stress is taken off your suspension system. When you bring in your 2018 Kia Optima, we’ll perform an alignment check first. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Kia recommendations. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When Should I Get Kia Optima Wheel Alignment?

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Kia Optima alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Even a small misalignment can decrease your fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may need to have your alignment checked if you notice any of these signs while driving your 2018 Kia Optima: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, uneven or rapid tire wear, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or squealing tires. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Optima dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.

How Much Does an Alignment for Kia Optima Cost?

On a budget? Kia Optima wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the life of your car, it could help you save on overall costs. Appropriately aligned wheels can support increased tire lifespan and fuel efficiency, so you get more miles out of the same tank of gas and set of 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 Kia Optima wheel alignment estimate.
