Why is my front wheel off center?
When your wheels are not aligned properly, you will notice that your steering wheel is off-center, i.e. the logo is not straight, even though your wheels are straight. Your tire tread might also wear down unevenly because the misaligned wheels are bouncing up and down on the road’s surface.
How do I center my front bike tire?
The wheel should be centered between the fork blades. To adjust wheel centering, open the quick release, move the wheel either left or right until the wheel appears centered, then close the quick release. For non-quick release wheels, loosen the axle nuts and center the wheel, then tighten the nuts fully.
