Why Tire Rotation is Important
While it might seem like a hassle to bring your tires in for regular rotation, it is actually vitally important for the performance of your vehicle and the life of your tires. Your vehicle doesn’t always distribute weight evenly, which means that your tires will naturally wear more on one side or another. With regular rotation, these tires can wear evenly over time, extending their life and helping out with the performance of your vehicle. Uneven tire wear can cause issues with traction, alignment, and more if left alone. Tire rotation minimizes the effects of the natural uneven wear of your vehicle.
How Tires are Rotated
At Auto Tech Center in Woodstock, we want to make sure your vehicle is in top shape, which is why we will happily rotate your tires in one of several directions, depending on the wear and operation of your vehicle. We will also check the tire pressure and ensure your tires are inflated to the right PSI and we will tighten the lug nuts so you will be safe on the road. Finally, a visual inspection ensures that your tires will be strong enough to handle the road ahead. We can rotate your tires in the following patterns:
- From one side to the other
- From the front to the back, or vice versa
- From one corner to another, in a diagonal rotation
- Or any combination of these to ensure even wear and tear on your treads
Know When to Bring it In
As part of your regular maintenance and service routine, your vehicle’s tires should generally be rotated every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. However, you may wish to rotate them sooner if you have been driving on tires that were over or under inflated, unbalanced, or out of alignment. If you are not sure, you can always bring your vehicle into Auto Tech Center and our mechanics will be happy to take a look!
