Did you know that something as easy as getting the tires rotated on your vehicle can lead to better control, better gas mileage, a smoother ride, and all-around better performance?
A simple tire rotation can go a long way in prolonging the life of your vehicle’s tires.
A good rule of thumb to help you remember is to ask for service technicians to rotate the tires every time you get an oil change. At the very least, they should be rotated about every 3,000 to 7,000 miles to keep the tires wearing evenly. By giving them proper maintenance, the life of your tires can be prolonged by thousands of miles.
It’s hard to imagine, but your vehicle tires are continuously wearing down when you drive—and it’s not evenly.
Uneven tread wear is unavoidable. The weight of a car is not distributed evenly to all four corners. The heaviest single thing in a car is the engine, and it’s typically in the front, unless you have a Volkswagen. Front tires tend to carry more weight.
Front tires also take care of all the steering duties. Think about when you apply brakes, the weight of the car shifts forward. How often do you brake while cornering? As you can see, there are many reasons why front tires almost always wear out faster than rear ones.
Done regularly, tire rotation can extend the life of your tires, improve gas mileage and ensure that your car handles in a steady and predictable manner when you need to make a sudden turn or stop.
