The Importance of Tire Rotation

Though modern vehicles are crafted to distribute weight better than before, they don’t actually share the weight between the four tires evenly, which is why you may notice that your tires show different wear on each corner. With regular tire rotations, you can ensure that tires wear evenly over time. This is especially important since uneven tire wear can contribute to more serious problems, including issues with alignment, traction and more. With regular rotations, you can extend the life of your tires and combat the natural wear on your vehicle.

The Process of Rotating Tires

Tire rotation is actually a fairly simple task when you have the right equipment, which is why the team at Auto Tech Centers is able to get you in and out as quickly as possible. As part of our tire rotation services, we will also check your tire pressure to ensure optimal inflation, which helps with fuel economy and prevention of wear and tear. We also tighten nuts and bolts and perform a thorough visual inspection to catch any potential issues before they arise. We offer several different rotation patterns, including:

  • Side to side
  • Front to back or back to front
  • Diagonal, from one corner to another
  • Or any combination of the above so that your treads receive more even wear

Time to Bring Your Vehicle in for Maintenance

Though you might know the schedule for your oil changes, you are probably less sure about tire rotations. You should bring your car, truck, or SUV in for a tire rotation every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. You will also want to schedule a tire rotation if you have been driving on tires with poor inflation, improper balance, or out-of-position alignment.
