Tires are one of the most important parts of your car. Without them, after all, you’re just not going to get very far. Ensuring that your tires last a long time is all going to come down to how well you take care of them and part of that maintenance is tire rotation.
Let’s take a look at tire rotation and what it can do for the longevity of your tires.
Tire rotation is when an automotive professional takes your tires and rotates their position on your vehicle. It’s a pretty simple concept, but the benefits are quite serious. This is especially true if your vehicle has a poor alignment or if your tires are imbalanced. These problems can cause uneven wear across your tires, which may cause more worn tires to need more frequent replacement. This is true of all vehicle types whether they are front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or even all-wheel drive.
However, when they are rotated, the burden is shared and thus, evenly distributed. Having a professional do this is of paramount importance for several reasons. Firstly, any benefit that you may get out of the process could be lost if the job is performed with anything less than professional service. Secondly, some vehicles have directional tires or onboard sensors that can complicate the process, and if performed incorrectly, will render you unable to operate the car effectively.
If your manual gives you a figure for having your tires rotated, then that is the figure that you should use for best practices. Otherwise, it is advised to have your tires rotated every six months or every 5,000-7,000 miles, whichever comes first.
To make things even simpler, you can just add tire rotation to the routine oil changes that you’re already doing. That way you can trust in the fact that your car is safe and that it will last as long as it is meant to.
