Tire Rotation

Did you know that you should have your tires rotated regularly? When you rotate your tires they will definitely last much longer and in the end will save you more expenses that can occur because of the wear and tear that is happening to them.Your front tires should be rotated so that they will at last at least every 10,000 to 20,000 miles and that your rear tires should be rotated so that they will last at least every 50,000 to 80,000 miles.

The reason tires need to be rotated is so the tires will even out their wear and when done in the right way they will all be worn out at the same time. When you rotate your tires it is a good chance for you to also have your brakes inspected. Brakes are just as important if not more so to be checked on a regular basis.

Your car tires should be rotated at a minimum of every 6,000 to 7,500 miles. When you get your tires rotated it insures that your tires will be properly inflated and that a physical inspection will be happening as well.  It just makes practical sense as well to do them both at the same time.

Different tire manufacturers suggest in different ways what is the correct way to have your tires rotated.  Tires should be rotated in a straight forward and a straight back or another option can be if you criss cross the fronts and or the backs before you do rotate them. It really matters as to how the wear and tear is occurring on the pattern of your particular tire.

A big reason that for shocks and struts to wear out faster is because tires can tend to do what is called scalloping and it causes a whining noise or a humming noise when your tires reach the higher speeds. By rotating the tires it changes the direction of the rotation and then it evens out the wear and you won’t experience those noises.

If you have an alignment problem you need to get that fixed right away because this is causing your tires to wear down faster then it should. When your tire begins a wear pattern it is going to continue with that pattern until it wears itself out or you throw it away. It is never a good idea to just put one new tire at a time on your car and also make sure that you are also checking on that spare tire in your trunk area at least once a year to make sure it is showing no wear and is properly inflated, there is nothing worse then having a flat tire because you failed to have your tires rotated or replaced and they wore themselves down and are now sitting on the side of the road with a flat!
