How Often Should You Rotate Tires?
Tires are some of the most important components of your car, and they are necessary for keeping your safety. After all, they are the only part that touches the road, making good traction a huge priority. If you want to properly steer and control your car, while receiving high efficiency and good performance, make sure you rotate your tires.
What is a tire rotation service? A tire rotation is the process of switching your tires to different positions. For instance, the front tires might be moved to the back, and the back tires are moved to the front. Usually, they are rotated left and right too.
The reason why tire rotations are a part of necessary maintenance is due to the fact certain tires can wear down quicker than others. Therefore, you need to switch their positioning to ensure they all wear evenly. Consequently, you will replace them all at the same time instead of changing just one or two.
What are the benefits of tire rotations?
- Even tire wear
- Extend the longevity of tires
- Improve handling and control
- Reduce chances of a blowout or other accidents
- Saves you money on tires over time
How often should you have your tires rotated? Typically, automakers will recommend having this service done every 3,000 to 6,000 miles. In other words, you should simply have it done at every oil change. That way, you don’t have to keep track of the timing, and it’ll be performed at regular intervals.
Having regular tire rotations will majorly extend the life of your vehicle’s tires and ensures you save money on tires over time. Because let’s be real – tires can be expensive.
