Tire Rotation: Why To Do It, and When To Do It
Tire rotation isn’t something a lot of drivers think about. That’s because today’s tires often work so well that people don’t spend much time considering them until something goes wrong. But the proper rotation of your tires is still very important. Recommendations are often to rotate tires every 5,000 to 7,000 miles, although some tires have a different rotation schedule. That’s why it’s so important to work with a trusted dealership and tire center, so you can get the kind of quality information and service you need, want, and expect.
Why is Tire Rotation Important?
When you have your tires rotated, you even out the wear that each tire experiences. For example, front-wheel-drive cars will see more wear on the front tires than the rear, because the front tires are the ones that receive the power when the vehicle moves. Rotating tires — front to rear and side to side — will help all the tires on your vehicle wear more evenly. If you don’t rotate your tires you could find that they wear unevenly and that they don’t grip the road as well as they should. That can make it difficult to stop quickly or increase your chances of an accident, especially if the weather is bad.
