Tire rotation is a very important part of keeping your vehicle working properly. It is a good idea to really pay attention to your alignment so that your tires wear evenly and operate at their optimal performance. When you get your tires rotated regularly, it will counteract uneven wear and will save you money in the long run, and keep you driving smoothly everywhere you go.
Importance of Even Treadwear for Your Tires
The tread on your tires will wear down eventually no matter what. The rate at which it wears depends on many factors, such as how often your vehicle is being used, the climate you live in, and the terrain you travel on. It is always a good idea to check the owner’s manual of your vehicle to see what the manufacturer suggests on often you should have your tires rotated, but in general, it is a good idea to get your tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,000 miles even if the alignment appears to be normal.
Importance of Proper Alignment
Your tires will wear unevenly if your tires are not aligned properly. If you go too long without having your tires rotated, the wear becomes uneven and can cause structural issues to your vehicle and make you have to buy new tires much sooner than if they are wearing more evenly. Many service centers have systems in place to test the wear of your tire and let you know if they are in need of rotating or not. Many of these systems allow for printouts of your vehicle’s performance so you can keep them for your records.
Importance of Your Vehicle’s Balance
Tires that are not properly balanced can cause a ton of issues more than just aggravating vibrations and uneven tread wear. When your car is vibrating it can affect the comfort of your drive and damage other components of your vehicle. The more balanced your tires are, the longer you will be on the road without the need for service. Most service shops use an electronic spin balancer that can help smooth your tires out and give you a more enjoyable ride.
Four-Wheel Drive and Straight Rotations
Any vehicle that is always in four-wheel drive, or vehicles that can be set to four-wheel drive are the best candidates for a four-tire cross rotation. This is the pattern where tires from both axles are changed and put on the opposing axle. This will ensure your tires are wearing evenly and keep your tires from needing to be replaced prematurely. Straight rotations are the most commonly needed form of rotations for most vehicles. This is when the tires are changed from front to rear, but they are switched from one side to the other and are most commonly used for directional tread patterns.
