When to Rotate your Tires

Rotating your tires is a very important part of auto maintenance. Quanz Auto Body can perform your tire rotations for you as you get an oil change or other services, so you never have to worry about the safety of your vehicle.

 

When should you rotate your tires?

A good rule of thumb is to have your tires rotated when you receive an oil change as that is done about every 10,000 miles or once a year. When tires are rotated properly it can save you money on future repairs and maintenance needs, as well as:

  • Extend lifespan and tread of tires
  • Improve gas mileage
  • Improve steering and handling

Rotating your tires, putting them in different positions throughout the year, helps them wear more evenly so they last longer and your need for new tires is decreased.

What causes wear?

Tires can become uneven for a number of reasons and that is why rotating them can increase their lifespan. Some vehicles are front-wheel drive and others are rear-wheel which also makes a big difference because the tires endure different issues because of steering, braking or accidental bruises from parking, and how much weight they carry.

You can tell that your tires are experiencing some wear and tear by listening to them. If you notice a noise coming from your tires on smooth, even roads such as a humming or whirring sound, you may need a rotation. Don’t wait until the tread is so uneven that the tire needs replaced. Things that can cause wear include:

  • mechanical problem
  • improper alignment
  • worn-out suspension
  • improper inflation

You can prevent buying new tires all the time by completing this easy vehicle maintenance.
