Why You Should Consider A Tire Rotation
Some things just have to be done--pumping gas, refilling your wiper fluid, and, yes, rotating your tires. Tire rotation will help prolong the life of your tires and stop uneven wear that can cause poor handling, vibrations, noise, and even blowouts. Tires need to be rotated every 10,000 miles for optimum performance and longevity of your tires.
If you're unsure of whether or not it's time for a tire rotation, several signs will tell you if you should schedule an appointment to get your tires rotated:
- Your treads are unevenly worn down on one side of the tire.
- You're experiencing shaking while driving at high speeds or turning corners.
- You're noticing scuffs or marks on the tires themselves.
You should always have a tire rotation on the forefront of your mind--because all drivers need a tire rotation every once in a while! And even though you don’t need it as often as a fill-up or an oil change, it’s still essential to keep it on your radar.
You'll need a tire rotation--it's inevitable.
Tires wear out unevenly--it's just the nature of your vehicle. This is especially true if you have one or more tires that are flatter than the others, don't have the same pressure, or have been on your car for differing amounts of time.
The outer tread on your tires wears away more quickly than the inner tread, depending on how you drive and the season. Most drivers probably don't think about this when they're driving. Still, it can significantly impact your vehicle's performance and safety.
Tire rotation is a part of preventative maintenance.
Tire rotations are a part of regular preventative maintenance. This practice helps keep your car running at its best, avoiding breakdowns and costly repairs down the road. Preventative maintenance also helps keep drivers safe by preventing accidents caused by worn tires or other mechanical problems.
Plus, it can help extend the lifespan of your tires because they're not being overworked in any one direction (such as when pulling out onto the road). A good tire rotation will help you keep your car running smoothly and safely for a long time.
Ultimately, a tire rotation can save you time and money.
A consistent tire rotation schedule can save you money in the long run by prolonging the life of your tires and preventing wear and tear on your vehicle.
Going too long without a tire rotation, or proper tires in general, will weigh on the rest of your vehicle and put you at risk for other repairs. So not only do you risk running through tires without a tire repair, you risk damaging other parts of your vehicle, too!
