Potential Issues if you Hit a Curb
When driving, there are some issues you should try to avoid. One of them includes hitting a curb. While it might not seem like a major issue, hitting a curb can do more damage to your vehicle than you might think. Hitting a curb even going as slow as five miles per hour can have a major impact on the performance of your tires. Tire wear damage is possible in as little as two hundred miles after a curb impact. It is important to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect the tires. This way your vehicle will help to improve the fuel efficiency when you travel as well.
Issues that could happen with the Tires
When you hit a curb, the tires can have damage caused to them. Other parts that could also become damaged are the tie rods. Tie Rods are the connection between your steering system and the wheels. Any damage to the tie rods can severely inhibit your ability to steer, especially important when roads are slick. The control arms allow up and down movement of the suspension while holding the knuckles, spindles, and axles firmly onto the car. Jarring from hitting a curb can cause extreme damage to the control arms and suspension of your vehicle. A steering knuckle contains the wheel hub or spindle and attaches to the suspension components. It is variously called a steering knuckle, spindle, upright or hub, as well. Damage to steering knuckles also impacts suspension and steering your vehicle. Tires and Wheels can be damaged as well. If you suspect tire damage, have it inspected immediately to avoid costly problems.
