Take Care of Your Tires With a Tire Rotation
June 1st, 2020
Since tires are the only part of an automobile that actually come in contact with the roadway, it’s important to realize just how much work they do on a daily basis, especially if you’re an everyday commuter. Because of the amount of work they put in to get you where you need to go, it’s time to pay your tires back.
This is where a routine tire rotation comes into play.
What is a Tire Rotation?
As the name suggests, a tire rotation is switching your wheels from one spot on your car to another spot to promote even wear. Your type of tires, your mileage, and even the way you drive could have an impact on how your tires are rotated. The method behind the madness of moving tires around is the goal of getting even wear on the tires.
If your tires wear unevenly, you could feel it when you handle the vehicle, especially at higher speeds. A tire rotation includes a pre-rotation inspection, where your certified tire technician will pay close attention to the wear of your tires. Depending on the recommendations of your owner’s manual, that will dictate how the tires are rotated during your tire rotation.
Another factor to consider during a tire rotation is the drivetrain of your vehicle. For example, if you drive a front-wheel-drive vehicle, your front tires are going to bear more of the wear. As a result, the front tires will be rotated with the rear tires as needed, to ensure the front-wheel wear is evenly distributed every so often.
But beyond managing the wear of your tires, a tire rotation can have additional benefits.
The Additional Value of a Tire Rotation
Beyond taking care of your tires for long-term value and performance, a tire rotation is a great way to have our certified technicians get an up-close-and-personal look of your tires. It’s not uncommon for our technicians to identify and treat underlying problems that could prevent additional wear-and-tear.
