A common maintenance requirement for modern vehicles is tire rotation. As a car owner, you need to know what it is and why it's important.

Tires get different pressures when they are on different corners of the car. A front wheel drive car, for example, puts more torque on the forward wheels. The pressure causes the tire to wear in certain patterns. To ensure the tire wears evenly, it's important to move the tires to different corners every 5000 miles. This can be done from one side to the other, or from the front to the back.

If you don't even the tire wear, it can cause one part of the tire to become thinner than the rest. This becomes a safety hazard. Plus, it shortens the life of the tire significantly. Get all of your automotive repair and maintenance done here at Jaguar of Tacoma. Make an appointment today.
