If you’ve ever been told that you need to get your tires rotated, you might have wondered why. After all, all four of your tires are going to experience the same amount of wear and tear, right? Wrong! The front tires on your car actually do most of the work, which is why they need to be rotated periodically. Here’s a look at how tire rotations help maximize the life of your tires.
How Tire Rotations Help Your Tires Last Longer
Tire rotations help even out the wear and tear on your tires so that they last longer. This is because the front tires on your car take on more weight and contact with the road than the back tires. Over time, this can cause the tread on your front tires to wear down faster than the tread on your back tires. By rotating your tires, you can help even out the wear and tear, which will help them last longer.
How Often Should You Get Your Tires Rotated?
Most manufacturers recommend getting your tires rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 kilometers. However, this can vary depending on the make and model of your car as well as your driving habits. The best way to find out how often you should get your tires rotated is to consult your car’s owner’s manual or ask us when you bring your vehicle in to us for scheduled maintenance.
