Tire rotations are just as important as oil changes when it comes to car maintenance. In fact, we advise that you have them done at the same time, so you don’t forget. Tire rotations are simply a service that involves changing the position of your tires, from front to rear, side to side, and vice versa. They are necessary to ensure your tires wear evenly and safely. Here are all the benefits of routine tire rotations:
While tire rotation services have many advantages, the best one is that they extend the life of your tires. Most tires naturally wear faster in the front versus the rear. By changing their position, tire rotations promote even treads on each tire so your tires can last longer.
Promotes Safe Driving
The handling of your vehicle can greatly improve with regular tire rotations. By ensuring your tires wear evenly, you’re guaranteed a smoother ride and proper traction.
Enhance Fuel Efficiency
Who doesn’t love saving money on fuel? An increase in fuel economy is a major advantage of having your tires rotated. The engine doesn’t have to work harder since your tires are worn evenly. In other words, the better traction your car has, the better MPG it has.
Irregular tire wear often leads to annoying symptoms, including random wheel/tire vibrations or noises. Leaving this sound going unnoticed can even shift your alignment in some cases. Therefore, routine tire rotations will minimize the likelihood of tire vibrations and other types of damage.
Save Money in the Long Run
Overall, the initial costs of tire rotations is way worth it in the grand scheme of things. Over time, you won’t have to replace your tires as often. Plus, tire rotations give us an opportunity to inspect your tire pressure, tread wear, wheels, and other components that may impact your safety. Therefore, you won’t have to be caught with costly surprises down the line.
Tire rotations should be more normalized just like your oil changes. If your car, SUV, or truck is due for a tire rotation, feel free to visit Spectrum Car Care today.
