4 Benefits of Regular Tire Rotation
Your car’s tires play a crucial role in keeping you safe on the road and proper tire maintenance isn't something to overlook or postpone. In order to keep your tires in good condition, regular tire rotation is essential. Check out these four benefits of regular tire rotation and how our tire professionals at Custom Complete Automotive can help!
What Does Tire Rotation Entail?
Tire rotation involves changing the position of your car tires. This should be done as recommended by your car manufacturer, or after every 3,000-6,000 miles. Ideally, tire rotation should be done whenever your car oil is changed. During tire rotation, a professional removes all tires and inspects them for any signs of wear. The tires are then put back, but in different positions, depending on where wear and tear will be even. Your tire pressure monitors are then reset and you are good to go!
Advantages of Regular Tire Rotation
In addition to saving you extra expenses, regular tire rotation has numerous benefits for your car, including:
1. Promotes Even Tire Wear
Uniform tire tread is essential for safe driving. Proper tire rotation helps promote even tire wear, ensuring that all four tires are exposed to similar road conditions at equal intervals, increasing the lifespan of your tires.
2. Improved Vehicle Handling
As previously stated, proper tire rotation help to promote uniform tire tread. This is essential for safe and balanced vehicle handling, enabling smoother accelerations and improving brake stopping distance.
3. Protects Other Vehicle Components
Along with keeping your tires well-maintained, proper tire rotation also helps to keep other vehicle components such as the brakes, axles, wheels, and suspension system in good condition.
4. Reduced Vibration
Over time, uneven tire wear can cause tire-related instability, resulting in vehicle vibrations. These vibrations can eventually affect your wheel alignment. Proper tire rotation helps to reduce vibrations and ensure your vehicle retains proper alignment.
