Why should you rotate tires? There’s a few reasons why rotating tires is imperative to safe, cost effective driving. Tires should be rotated every 6-8000 miles, even if they don’t show obvious signs of wear.
1) Rotating tires helps preserve balanced handling. This helps maintain traction, which is especially important in rain or snow, especially on our winding country roads.
2) Tire rotation prevents wear. Allowing each tire to be used in all four vehicle positions helps promote even wear which increases the life of your tires.
3) Many of the tire manufacturers require rotation to keep warranties valid. The last thing you want to do is void a warranty on a set of new tires!
4) Even wear across all tires means you can replace them at the same time, which affects vehicle handling and safety.
A few facts about your tires:
1) The front tires perform very different tasks than the rear tires.
2) Tires on a front-wheel drive vehicle must respond differently than those on a rear-wheel drive vehicle.
3) Performance tires wear much faster than those on a typical sedan or mini-van.
