Tire rotation is the process of periodically changing the position of each of the tires on your vehicle. You should take your vehicle to a certified technician to have your tires rotated after each time you have driven about 5,000 miles or as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. This is about the same amount of mileage that you drive between oil changes, so it may be a good idea to kill two birds with one stone, as the saying goes, and just get both things done at once to keep your vehicle in tip-top condition.
When your tires are rotated regularly, it gives your mechanic or tire specialist the opportunity to visually inspect them for any damage or deterioration. It also allows the air pressure in your tires to be checked. If you have been feeling any vibration when you are driving the road, you need to let your technician know so they can rebalance your tires while it is on the rack. They can also check the tread to ensure your tires are in good working order and have plenty of traction.
When you diligently bring your vehicle in for a tire rotation every 5,000 miles, you are actually saving yourself money by maximizing your tires’ lifespan. The wear and tear on your tires are spread out more evenly between the four of them by rotating them. Also, by keeping the depth of the tread of your tires more even between the four, you get better traction when you are driving down the highway.
If you do not keep your tires rotated properly, you will end up spending more time and money because your tires will wear out faster. Also, you take a chance to have bald tires with no tread that can cause your vehicle to slide off the roadway, hydroplane when you are driving on wet roadways, and your vehicle may pull more to one side you tires become unbalanced. It is much better all the way around to have your tires rotated on a regular basis.
