Why Tire Rotations are Needed for your Car

tire rotations


Tire rotations are important. They help even out tire wear by allowing each tire to serve in as many of the vehicle’s wheel positions as possible. Remember, tire rotation can’t correct wear problems due to worn mechanical parts or incorrect inflation pressures. If you do notice uneven wear with your vehicle, make sure to schedule an appointment. Bring the vehicle in, and we can inspect t for you.

Rotation of tires

While vehicles are typically equipped with four tires, usually the tires on the front axle need to accomplish very different tasks than the tires on the rear axle. The tasks encountered on a front-wheel drive vehicle are considerably different than those of a rear-wheel drive vehicle. Each wheel position can cause different wear rates and different types of tire wear.

Why a tire rotation is needed

It is an advantage when all four tires wear together because as wear reduces a tire’s tread depth. Also, it allows all four tires to respond to the driver’s input more quickly. This help to maintain the handling and helps increase the tire’s cornering traction.

Good condition

When your tires wear out together, you can get a new set of tires without being forced to buy pairs. If you replace tires in sets of four, you will maintain the original handling balance. In addition, our suppliers constantly introduce new tires, each of which improves upon their past product’s performance. If you replace your tires in sets of four you can have the best handling of the vehicle. If you are not sure if your vehicle needs new tires, bring it in. We can inspect the vehicle, as well as the tires. If a new set is needed, we can advise you on the best options. By having the tires in ideal condition, you can help the handling on the road. This can help provide a comfortable driving experience for you and your passengers.
