Rotating Your Tires
It is recommended that you have your tires rotated every six months, or approximately every 6,000 to 8,000 miles, depending on which occurs first. Unfortunately, many people do not understand what tire rotation service is and why it is beneficial. Here is what you need to know about tire rotation service.
A tire rotation service is exactly what it sounds like. It is the process of rotating the tires that are on your automobile. When tires are rotated, they are moved from one spot on your car to another spot of your car.
Why Have Your Tires Rotated?
Tire rotation helps to extend the life of your tires, while also helping tires to wear evenly. Some tires receive more wear than other tires, based on your driving habits and where you drive. This can lead to the tread on one specific tiring wearing out faster if the tires are not rotated.
If one tire has a lower tread than other tires, it can negatively affect those other tires and the rotation of your tires. This can lead to uneven wear on the rest of your tires and cause your tires to wear out faster. When you have your tires rotated, you are ensuring that each tire receives an equal amount of time in every position, helping your tires to wear evenly.
What Happens When You Don’t Rotate Your Tires
If you fail to have your tires rotated, your tires may wear unevenly. This may lead to your tire blowout. This can also lead to your tires having a shorter lifespan. The last thing that you need to be concerned about if you fail to rotate your tires is having your tire warranty voided.
When you purchase new tires, you may receive or purchase a warranty for your new tires. One of the conditions associated with that warranty is properly maintaining them. This includes having them rotated as recommended. If you fail to rotate your tires and they begin to wear unevenly or wear out prematurely, your warranty may not cover the tires, as you did not properly maintain them.
