What Is a Tire Rotation Service?

Tire rotation is moving the tires and wheels of a vehicle to a different position to promote even tire wear. Sometimes, tires will be moved diagonally, from back to front or from left to right to make sure you get the most from your tires. The tires of your vehicle can experience uneven wear and tear due to the weight difference on the front axles. Tire rotation service is important for a variety of reasons.

Why Should You Have Your Tires Rotated?

Tires often wear unevenly. The front and rear tires wear more on the outside edges because they are the tires that lean over when you're making a turn. Although the back tires move when you're turning, they do not lean into the curve as the front tires do. Rear tires wear too, but they tend to wear more evenly than the front tires.

If you leave worn tires in place instead of having them rotated, the front tires will wear down a lot faster than normal and you will have to replace your tires more frequently; as soon as every 1,000 miles or sooner. Rotating your vehicle's tires helps prevent uneven wear on the tires, as well as provide you and your passengers with a smooth ride. Proper tire rotation also improves your car's handling, which makes your vehicle safer. If you're interested in saving time and money, tire rotation is the way to go because this service helps extend the life of your tires.
