Tire Rotation Services
There are two types of tire rotation: one occurs when you’re driving your vehicle down the road, the other happens so that when you’re driving, your vehicle doesn’t slip and slide, causing you to lose control.
Why Keep Up With Tire Rotation?
Rotating your tires every few thousand miles helps improve performance and safety. Tires wear unevenly, even if only slightly, affecting performance on the road. Since front tires carry most of the weight of your vehicle, they’ll often wear differently than your back tires, causing a bumpy and even unsafe ride if allowed to persist.
Rotating your tires every 3,000-5,000 miles can save you time and money in the long run. An easy way to prioritize this is by scheduling a rotation when you come in for an oil change.
Tire Rotation Patterns
The type of vehicle will determine where each tire should be moved during the tire rotation service. Front-wheel-drive vehicles with non-directional tires are typically rotated in a forward cross pattern – the front tires move straight back to the rear, and the rear tires move to the opposite sides of the front axle.
For rear-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive vehicles with non-directional tires, a rearward cross pattern is recommended. This is done by moving the rear tires straight up to the front and the front tires to the opposite sides of the rear axle.
