My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo tends to pull towards the right. I replaced all four wheels earlier this year but I still feel like it does this. Am I supposed to get it aligned more frequently? And if so, how frequently?
Thank You for writing into askpatty, to address your Jeep concern. It is always good practice to perform an alignment when purchasing new tires. It is great practice to rotate your tires every other oil change to prevent any kind of premature wear. Whenever your vehicle "pulls" it is good to have the alignment checked. You can research places in town that perform alignments and have free checks.
Sometimes just replacing the tires are not enough. If there is an alignment problem you need to get this fixed.
Now that you have new tires, this is the time to get an alignment. You want to make sure you check the tire pressure as well. If one tire is low, you can sometimes get a pull from that as well.
Alignments are done when you see unusual tire wear or you feel like the vehicle is pulling. It sounds like it's time for you to have one.
