3 Great Reasons to Rotate Your Tires

Tire rotation – periodically changing their position on the vehicle from front to back and/or side to side – is essential to maintain the life of your tires. Many drivers neglect tire rotation as part of regular vehicle maintenance. Regular tire rotation will help prevent irregular and premature wear. Having tires rotated regularly has many benefits including extending the lifespan of your tires and helps to maintain traction.

Here are a few other great reasons to rotate your tires:

1. Improved Fuel Efficiency

Properly rotated tires help the vehicle steer and handle better, which increases fuel efficiency by keeping the tire friction at its lowest safe level. Vehicles that receive a regular tire rotation use less gas because the amount of work required by the tires is decreased. Better gas mileage can add up to a significant amount of savings by the end of the month for many car owners.

2. Better Vehicle Control

When all four tires are wearing down evenly, the vehicle can respond to frequent demands like a quick acceleration, a sudden jam on the breaks, and be overall more responsive on tight corners. Tire rotations will help maintain your wheel alignment and balance, by reducing horizontal friction with the road.

3. Increased Tire Performance

Rotating tires will increase the overall performance of the vehicle. Once tires become ridiculously worn, there’s an increased risk for tire failure. Tire failure can result in a blow-out and the sudden loss of control of your vehicle – both are situations you don’t want to happen. Switching the tire placement will ward off front-end misalignment, affecting how the vehicle handles and makes the ride very uncomfortable.
