Wheel alignment sometimes referred to as tracking, is part of standard automobile maintenance that consists of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the car maker's specification. The purpose of these adjustments is to reduce tire wear, and to ensure that the vehicle travels straight and true (without "pulling" to one side).
Besides preventing excessive tire wear, a four-wheel alignment also provides stable vehicle handling. If the wheel angles are wrong, then the vehicle can be unpredictable or twitchy during cornering or braking. Regular wheel alignments will usually save you as much in tire wear as they cost. A hard bump from hitting a curb or pothole can throw your wheels out of alignment and damage your tires.
