Effective Tire Rotation should be done every 3,000 – 6,000 miles or with every oil change. To find out when your tires should be rotated, consult your vehicle’s owner’s handbook or ask us at Modica Bros. Tire Center.
What it does:
Rotating your tires is vital for helping your tires last longer. Rotating your tires suggests changing them from one side of the automobile to the other, relocating them from front to back or a blend of both, depending on your vehicle and what was done previously. Some tires have to be rotated at specific periods, while others will have to be rotated depending on the wear.
Why service is essential:
Unequal tire wear could lead to unsatisfactory performance, poor fuel economy, shorten the life of the tire and can easily cause safety issues.
Many factors can cause unequal tire wear:
- Strenuous driving routines, stop and go city traffic, road construction, etc. Bumpy surface and pot holes
- Under inflated tires
- Worn Shocks
- Unaligned wheels
- Worn elements
- Not rotating your tires
