Q: Wheel Alignment and Low Speed Vibration on 2006 Ford Focus

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I slid on ice and knocked a curb going about 10 mph with my front right passenger tire, and the back left passenger tire (I spun). It knocked the car slightly out of alignment (steering wheel turns to the left) and there is a whirring vibration that I can feel in the back of my car at low speeds. I am going to take it in for the alignment problem, because the tire is wearing on the back right passenger side. Will the alignment fix the whirring problem or is that something else that happened when I slid? Thanks so much for the help!

The alignment will not likely fix any noises, but when they inspect the vehicle they may find the cause of the noise. Be careful out on those icy roads!
