The Why, When, and How of Tire Rotations

When your tires are rotated, it simply means that they are moved from wheel to wheel on your vehicle. This is done to make sure your tires don't wear down unevenly. Without rotating, your tires' lifespans would be reduced considerably. To promote long life and full performance potential, your tires should be rotated about every six months or so.  Our service center professionals can provide your tire rotation fast and efficiently.

The Dangers of Worn Tires

If the wear on your tires were to go unchecked, it could result in some or all of the following:

  • Overheating: Overheating and the resulting breaking down happens when tire grooves aren't deep enough to hold any cool air.
  • Weakening: Worn down thin tires are prone to punctures from sharp objects on the road and can cause blowouts. 
  • Vulnerability: Worn tires with reduced tread can result in hydroplaning.

Keep an Eye on Your Tires

In between tire rotations, it's always wise to take a moment from time to time to check the conditions of your tires. Below is a list of things to keep in mind and issues to look out for while you're looking your tires over:

  • Air pressure: Having the correct amount of air pressure in your tires is vital to proper and safe tire performance. If your tires have too much or not enough air in them, they will wear down quicker than they should. This wear and tear will show itself unevenly on the tires.

    If they're overinflated, there will be excessive wear in the middle of the tire. If your tires are under inflated, the wear will be exhibited on the outer edges. Check your owner's manual for the recommended air pressure for your tires.
  • Swelling or cracking. If you see these telltale signs that one or more of your tires have worn down too far, have them examined immediately.
  • Separating. If the tread is pulling away from the rest of the tire, the tire needs to be replaced.
