One common symptom of misaligned tires is a vibration in the steering column while driving at high speeds or turning. As your wheels struggle to work together, the minor differences in their alignment push and pull against each other, creating the vibration. This may also occur when suspension equipment is looser than it should be, potentially indicating a more dangerous problem.
This issue might not lead to any monetary losses, but no one wants to sit in a rattling cab for hours at a time. If you are constantly on edge due to a shaking steering column, you may find yourself growing tired more quickly, thus impairing your performance. By the time you’re dealing with this particularly annoying problem, you might consider a wheel alignment as a quality-of-life investment.
