Tire maintenance should be a top priority, and part of that maintenance is tire rotation. Keeping your tires rotated on a regular basis helps to minimize tire failure, and reduce wear and tear! The primary reason for tire rotation is for the tires to wear evenly. When tires wear evenly, there is a far better chance they will be able to sustain their life span, which keeps money in your pocket. Every tire has an expected life span, which is determined by the tire manufacturer. The recommended timeframe for tire rotation is anywhere between 3,000 to 7,000 miles, depending on the specific tire manufacturer and the vehicle.
Have you noticed that your tires wear out too soon? That is an indication that the tires are not being rotated regularly, if at all. It may also be an indication of a vehicle being out of alignment, especially if the premature wear is on the outer edges. But, generally speaking, when tires are not being rotated regularly, you will notice that the tread is much lower on the front tires than the rear tires, for front-wheel drive vehicles.
Although most vehicles will require tire rotation from front to rear, or vice-versa, there are other vehicles that require distinct tire rotations. If tires are not rotated properly, it can not only be an uncomfortable ride, but it is very unsafe. All tire rotations should be done by a skilled technician who knows specifically how to determine the direction of the tire rotation pattern. The different types of tire rotations are:
The technician will also check the air pressure of all the tires. Maintaining accurate air pressure is important for even wear, as well as comfort and safety.
