An alignment involves making adjustments to your Kia Optima's suspension system, which connects the wheels with the rest of the 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 your system is aligned to the measurements that Kia specifies for your vehicle, all four tires have equal pressure applied to them on the road. This gives you several benefits: 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 2019 Kia Optima, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Kia. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.
It’s wise to have your Kia Optima alignment checked (and corrected as needed) roughly 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 also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2019 Kia Optima: a feeling that your car pulls to one side, excessive wear on only one tire, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. Unfortunately, you won't see any warning lights on your Optima dashboard if your wheel alignment is off.
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, meaning you could get more miles out of the same tires or tank of gas. Regular wheel alignment checks and adjustments could also cut down on future auto repairs.
