Importance of Tire Rotation

It comes down to simple automotive design. With the engine in the front of the car, the front end is heavier than the back. Front wheel drive increases this weight. With this arrangement, the front-end tires work harder and carry more of a load than the back. Over time, they will begin to show wear and uneven tire treads.

Braking, turning and steering adds to the burden the front-end tires endure every day. For instance, constant right-hand turns cause the left tire to travel further than the other. In the end, the tires will begin to wear unevenly. Poorly inflated and misaligned tires will also place an undue burden on the tires. Misaligned tires make a car pull to one side. This constant pulling followed by the drivers correction will cause the tires to thin and deteriorate. Another thing drivers need to keep an eye on is tire pressure. This can lead to bulging which is very unsafe to drive on.

Tire Rotation Service

Most manufacturers put tire rotation into their maintenance schedule for every 5,000-8,000 miles. Though different manufacturers recommend several patterns of rotation, most commonly, service technicians will simply put the front wheels on the back and crossed (left tire on the right side). Your service technician will decide the best method. Specialty tires such as snow tires, unidirectional tires, or even a full-sized spare, need to be handled appropriately. Our service experts know exactly how to handle all types and brands of tires.
