Every vehicle’s tires wear differently from the front end to the rear end. Your front tires wear more on the shoulders of the tires from the cornering process. If you have a front-wheel-drive vehicle, they wear even faster. When the tires are rotated, the front tires are changed to the rear and the rear tires to the front of your vehicle to have more even wear. The reason this is so important is that it extends the life of all your tires.
Most manufacturers recommend you to rotate your tires every 5,000 to 8,000 miles so they will wear evenly. If you notice any odd vibrations or noises at higher speeds, then you most likely need your tires rotated. At times, it will make a thump thump sound as the tire is bouncing on the road to signal you to get to a dealership and attend to your tires. When you don’t rotate your tires on a schedule, you are more likely to have blowouts, which can cause a serious accident. Routine tire rotation is just as important as oil changes and other maintenance to your car. It’s a win-win situation to make your tires last much longer and to keep your family safe while on the road.
When you schedule a tire rotation service, the technicians will remove all four tires. Each tire is put on a computerized balancing machine and small weights are added at the appropriate areas to balance your tires. They will also take a good look at your tires for odd wear patterns and make certain the stem is holding air. Then they put the tires back on with the rear ones in front and front ones in the rear of your car.
