Do I Really Need To Have My Tires Rotated?

This is a question we get often. As a matter of fact, tire rotation is recommended by the manufacturer to help protect your tires against uneven wear. In return, your vehicle will perform at its best.

If your head is still spinning with questions, there are a few more reasons why tire rotation is so important.

Help reduce the rate of wear.

Your tires will wear at different rates depending on your drive style. For example, vehicles with front-wheel drive typically see their front tires wear at a faster rate because the front wheels are driving the vehicle. The front tires also absorb additional pressure when turning and cornering. 

By moving or “rotating” your tires as recommended by your vehicle manufacturer, you can equalize the wear of your tires.

Extend the life of your tires.

Proper rotation not only helps even out the tire wear, but it can also help extend the life of your tires. With a good tire rotation schedule, you can avoid prematurely replacing any tires. It also provides an excellent opportunity to visually check and make sure your brakes are in good working order.

Help improve your MPG.

Keeping your tires properly inflated and rotated will improve your vehicle’s traction and stability. If your tires have uneven wear, they could be losing grip. Underinflated tires waste energy by increasing rolling resistance, reducing your miles per gallon. Here are some additional tips on how to improve your MPG.
