Rotation is Important for Optimal Handling
Your vehicle naturally distributes weight unevenly among the wheels, which means that if they are left alone, some of them will wear out sooner than others. Tire rotation keeps everything in balance by moving the wheels around in several different directions to ensure they wear evenly on all four corners. Tires are rotated in the following directions:
- Side to side
- Front to back
- A combination of any of the above, depending on how they were rotated previously
Tire Rotation Service and More
At Auto Tech Centers, we go the extra mile to make sure your vehicle is ready for the road. First, we will rotate your tires in alternating patters, making sure they get even wear form side to side and front to back. We will also check for correct inflation, since this can affect the overall wear of your tires. We will inspect the tire tread and the general quality and protection of your tires to ensure that they are still fit for the road. Finally, we will tighten the lug nuts to ensure everything is snug and secure.
Know When to Rotate Your Tires
Tire rotation is an important part of regular vehicle maintenance, so you should aim to have your tires rotated about every 3,000-6,000 miles. Generally, you can have this done every time you bring your vehicle in for an oil change. Since your tires wear differently due to other vehicle issues, you may also wish to rotate them if you have recently traveled with underinflated tires, poorly aligned wheels, worn components, or worn shocks. In addition, you may need your tires rotated more frequently if you drive on uneven terrain or in frequent stop-and-go traffic.
