Tips for Tire Rotations

A very important part of maintaining your tires' safety and extending their life is having your tires rotated on a regular basis. By rotating your tires, this also provides an opportunity to check the pressure in them, check the tread depth, and inspect them visually for any damage. If you are experiencing any type of vibration when you drive, be sure to have them balanced.

Each of your tires, based on their position, will wear in a different place. The tires on the front of a front-wheel drive vehicle, for example, take most of the friction and torque for accelerating, turning, and braking. Over time, by not rotating your tires, you will end up with more treadwear in certain areas and that can compromise your safety when driving.

Depending on whether you have a full-size spare tire or a temporary spare, will determine if you can rotate your spare tire into your tire rotation. Also, if you have directional or non-directional tires, whether your front and rear tires are the same sizes, and if your vehicle is front, rear, all or four-wheel drive; all of these will determine the tire rotation pattern you should use on your particular vehicle.
