Tire rotations are an essential part of what helps to save your tires and your car. Having a professional mechanic do the rotation will help you keep track of what's going on with your tires. They can inspect them for damage, check the strength of the tread, and rebalance them as needed. They can also check the air pressure.
A routine tire rotation is recommended at least once every 5,000 miles. And there are many reasons why this is true. One major reason is that you can spread the wear much more evenly across all four tires. With the high cost of getting new tires, this is definitely a worthy investment.
Another reason to get your tires rotated once every 5,000 miles is that you will be able to keep the tread even, which helps with everyday driving concerns such as smooth, even braking, and driving safely during times of severe weather. Some tires do wear out quicker than others, depending on their location. For example, front tires wear out much quicker than tires in the back do.
Lack of tire rotation can cause an issue known as tread cupping, which results in your vehicle bouncing during active driving. Plus, it can have an impact on traction, which means less control of your vehicle on wet or slippery surfaces. You will also save wear and tear on your brakes, axles, wheels, and wheel bearings. You will have the added benefit of enjoying good suspension.
There are many ways to rotate your tires. Vehicles with four-wheel, all-wheel, or rear-wheel driving benefit much better with a rearward cross rotation, where the front wheels are rotated on opposite sides of the rear end. This is helpful in saving your front tires. Front-wheel vehicles should follow an X pattern where all tires move diagonally.
Tire rotation is easy and affordable and adds value to your vehicle. Getting tire rotations done as a regular part of routine maintenance is vital to saving you a lot of money in the long run. If you want to get your tires rotated, simply bring your vehicle to our shop today!
