Our tire rotation service involves changing the position of a vehicle’s tires in order to reduce massive tread differentiation between them. Tires tend to exhibit differing amounts of tread wear, because each tire does not deal with exactly the same types or amounts of stress as its companions. Motorists rotate their tires because this is an effective way to deal with uneven tread wear. By alternating tires according to tire rotation patterns, drivers can help distribute tread wear more evenly and reduce uneven tread wear. Depending upon the type of vehicle a motorist drives and the type of tires on the vehicle, the tire rotation pattern may vary. Rotation experts may exchange the front tires with one-another, switch the rear tires with one-another, or swap the front and rear tires. If the vehicle has a full-size matching spare tire, it may also be included in the rotation cycle.
You should rotate your tires to prevent uneven tread wear. Uneven tread commonly occurs because most vehicles do not distribute weight evenly between the front and rear tires. In general, front tires tend to deteriorate more quickly than rear tires due to their location and the weight of a vehicle’s engine. By rotating your tires, you’ll distribute the wear more evenly, and you won’t need to replace your tires as frequently. Beyond the benefit of extended tread life, routine and professional tire rotation services can also improve your gas mileage. This is because well-maintained tires reduce rolling resistance, which affects your vehicle’s performance and gas mileage. Our tire rotation service can help prevent massive tread differentiation between tires, encourage better vehicular performance, and save you money by contributing to better gas mileage. If you have questions about how often you should rotate your tires, simply ask a member of our service staff.
