While most drivers understand that tire rotation should be performed on a regular basis, very few understand why it is actually important. Is tire rotation just one more thing that’s bundled into your car’s maintenance, or does it actually serve an essential purpose for your car’s health and well-being?
What Is Tire Rotation?
Tire rotation carefully repositions your car’s tires every 5,000 miles or as recommended by your tire or vehicle manufacturer. Most drivers choose to have their tires rotated and balanced whenever they are getting their oil changed. Tire rotation is an opportunity to also ensure that your wheels are in good condition, check air pressure, have them rebalanced and examine tread depth.
The Benefits of Tire Rotation
Even Wear: Your tires can get uneven wear when they are not rotated often enough. The tires on the front of your car wear differently than the tires on the back of your car, so there is no way, without rotation, to ensure that all four are aging and wearing in the same fashion.
Safety: Any car that has properly rotated and balanced tires handles much better, which in turn makes it safer and smoother. Cars with uneven tires or poorly balanced tires will have a bumpy ride.
Cost-Effectiveness: Tire rotation saves you money in the short and long term! Tires last much longer when you rotate them regularly for even wear. Long-lasting tires always save you money. Rotation can also save you money by catching tire problems before it means missing work, school or an event due to a flat tire (and paying for a new one and roadside assistance!).
Decreased Noise: Tires with an uneven tread will make for a louder ride. If you notice your wheel vibrating or your car sounding louder than normal on the road, there’s a chance that having your tires rotated will instantly decrease the noise and make your ride smoother and more pleasant.
All Wheel Drive Benefits: Finally, if your car has all-wheel drive, evenly-worn tires are ideal for reducing stress on your drivetrain and reducing overall wear on your car.
