We have seen a lot of pothole grief this spring. Now that the road crews are out in force it will hopefully get better.

Hitting a pothole hard can put a world of hurt on your car. We have seen everything from ruined tires to broken shocks to cars being jerked out of alignment.

If you have hit a pothole hard this spring (who hasn’t?) keep an eye on your tire wear, especially if it feels the car is pulling a bit more than usual. If you need an alignment you might see it in uneven tread wear. If you feel a vibration at higher speeds, you may have knocked a wheel weight off and just need to have your tires adjusted.
