2016 Kia Rio Wheel Alignment

What Can I Expect with Kia Rio Alignment?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Kia Rio's suspension system, which serves to attach your wheels to your vehicle. During the 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 Kia intended them to. When your suspension is aligned to Kia’s optimal measurements, 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. Before we adjust the alignment of your 2016 Kia Rio, we’ll start by checking the current alignment angles. If needed, we'll adjust your wheel alignment angles to match Kia recommendations. We'll also ensure your tire air pressure is correct.

When to Get Kia Rio Wheel Alignment

It's a good idea to have your Kia Rio alignment checked every 6,000 miles or so. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could cause premature wear on your car if not corrected. You might also want to get an alignment check if you experience any of the following when driving your 2016 Kia Rio: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that feels off center or crooked while driving straight ahead, or tires that squeal frequently. You won’t see any warning lights on your Rio dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.

How Much Does an Alignment for Kia Rio Cost?

On a budget? Kia Rio wheel alignment might be more affordable than you think. Over the years, it could actually save you 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. Proper wheel alignment could also lead to fewer auto repairs. Call your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for an accurate 2016 Kia Rio wheel alignment estimate.
