Your vehicle's tires are super important when it comes to the overall safety of your vehicle. A good set of working tires ensures that you are able to properly control and steer your car while also receiving great performance and fuel efficiency. In order to keep your tires in good condition, it is ideal to follow recommended maintenance and services which will help your tires wear down at a normal pace and keep them wearing evenly.
One important tire service that is often overlooked is the tire rotation. Tire rotation is a process of rotating your tires from one position to another. Since some tire positions tend to undergo more pressure than others, it helps to ensure that each tire wears down evenly in comparison to one another. This will allow you to be able to replace your tires as a set rather than having to replace one or two faster than the others.
So, what are some of the benefits of a tire rotation?
- Even tire wear among all tires which helps the tires last longer and perform better
- Reduced rattling and vibrations on the road
- Smoother ride
- Better handling
- Reduced chance of a blowout on the road
- Save money on tires over time!
The benefits of tire rotation are great in comparison to the low cost of the service. With a regular tire rotation, you'll save money and ensure that your tires are kept in good condition, which will keep you safer on the road.
A good rule of thumb for tire rotation is about every 6,000 miles or so, or at every oil change. If you're due for a tire rotation, we invite you into the professionals here at David's Garage for friendly service. Give us a call or stop by today!
