Driving over potholes, against a kerb or even over speed bumps, can affect your wheel alignment and suspension. This can lead to a whole host of problems, including uneven tyre wear, compromised handling, increased fuel consumption and longer braking distances. Because the effects can happen gradually, you might not even be aware of the loss in performance.
