Tires wear differently depending on their position on the vehicle, the weather, temperature, terrain, the way you drive and the state of your suspension. For example, cars with front-wheel drive usually have more wear and tear on the front tires. By rotating your tires, the law of averages evenly distribute the wear across all tires, which means you get the most out of your tires, mileage-wise and traction-wise. You can increase the life of your tires by 20 percent!

What are the other benefits?

  • Vehicles that regularly get tire rotations end up using less gas. The vehicle ends up using less gas because the tires do less work when the tires get equal wear and tear. With less tire pulling and road friction, gas mileage goes up. They money you save from rotating your tires outweighs the amount of money you spend on a tire rotation.
  • Tires that are excessively worn have an increased risk of tire failure. A blow-out could occur.
  • Switching the placement of tires end up avoiding misalignment  in the front-end of your car, which will give your vehicle better handling.

What is the service?
