Automotive Services: Why Rotate Your Tires?

When you buy a new vehicle, you have to take care of it to ensure that you get the most out of it. People tend to make simple mistakes that end up leading to expensive repairs down the road. You can get many more years of enjoyment out of your vehicle if it is properly maintained at a qualified service center.
Car owners know the importance of routine maintenance, but one of the things people tend to forget about is their tires. Rotating your tires is part of the regular maintenance for your vehicle. Tires must be rotated because rotation equalizes tire-tread wear and tear, which means you get the most out of your tires.

About Tire Wear – Taking Care of Your Tires

Because each tire on your car supports a different amount of weight, your tires can wear at different rates. When tires are rotated regularly, it will provide maximum gripping power to the vehicle and your tires will last you a lot longer, and you’ll be a lot safer  in your vehicle. Check with your vehicle’s owner’s manual to find out how often your tires should be rotated
Have your tires rotated if you see irregular or uneven wear. Keep in mind that a hard impact such as driving over a pothole can cause misalignment, which then leads to uneven tire wear. The sooner you correct an issue such as this, the less damage you are likely to do to your tires.
