Q: Q: Alignments

asked by on

If my alignment is bad on the car could it possibly make a wheel or the wheels not fit properly in the tire well

My car has 156000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

An alignment will not cause this. Only a damaged or worn out suspension component can cause it or if you have the wrong size tire. You will need to have the suspension inspected for problems and then a proper alignment can be done. If you tried to get an alignment with bad system components the alignment will not be correct.
