How Much Did the Average Car Alignment Cost at Walmart in 2014?

The average price of an automobile wheel alignment at Walmart in 2014 varied by location and with the type and size of a vehicle. A wheel alignment for a front-wheel-drive vehicle generally cost between $30 and $65, while alignments for four-wheel-drive vehicles cost from $50 to $95.

Experts concur that wheel alignments should be performed on an automobile every 10,000 miles, or once the vehicle suffers a major shock to its suspension system. Bumping a curb, driving over a large pothole or being involved in an traffic accident all warrant an out-of-schedule realignment, as does regular operation on poorly maintained gravel roads. When a vehicle's wheels are correctly aligned, the automobile is more easily controlled, gets better gas mileage and wears its tires more evenly.
