“Tire rotation” is a term you hear frequently in the realm of vehicle maintenance, but what does it actually mean? How often should you have it done? Westerville Automotive in Westerville has the answers you’re looking for.
Tire rotations are essential to prolonging the life of your tires and maintaining the ride quality of your vehicle. Since tires are expensive, it’s also a worthwhile investment. Essentially a tire rotation entails lifting your vehicle off the ground, pulling the wheels off, and rearranging them in a pattern set by your manufacturer. This prevents them from wearing unevenly and prematurely since they wear at different rates depending on where on the vehicle they are.
There is sort of an elastic answer to how frequently you should rotate your tires...different manufacturers suggest different intervals. Typically, however, it’s not a bad idea to have them rotated every oil change, or every 5,000 miles or so. Doing so will generally at least double the lifespan of any specific tire.
