Q: Excessive wear on tires

asked by on

My tires have excessive wear in them. I think I need an alignment. Is that something that can be done at home.

An alignment is not something that can be done at home. To align a car properly, to get best tire wear, requires specialized machinery and equipment. I would seek out a shop in your area that has an alignment machine, and have them align your car so your tires will wear properly.
