Improve Tire Safety and Longevity with Tire Rotation


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.

Tires don't last forever, although some can be good for more than 65,000 miles. No matter what the manufacturer's warranties suggest, you must check the tires regularly. Worn tires are dangerous.

Beware of anything that indicates trouble. Do you find yourself using an air pump to fill up the tire every morning? The tire should be repaired or replaced because it won't get better by itself. Worn treads and a failed tread penny test also represent aged tires.
