The Importance of Rotating your Tires

A good set of tires is no small investment. Like any other investment, it only makes sense to do everything you can to extend the life of your vehicle’s tires as much as possible. One of the things you can do to increase your tires’ longevity is to rotate them on a regular basis. The rotation of your tires is extremely important, not only to properly maintain your tires, but also for your safety.

It is important to understand the difference between your front tires and rear tires. Your vehicle’s front tires are exposed to pressure in a number of different ways, such as when the steering wheel is turned, and especially during three-point turns and parallel parking. Because your front tires experience so much more pressure than your back tires, they wear out much more quickly. In order to prevent your tires from wearing out at different times, it is important to rotate them. Rotating your tires when appropriate ensures that their tread will be more evenly matched and they will last longer.

When rotating the tires on your vehicle, it is important to know what sort of rotation is appropriate for your tires. For example, when some tires are rotated, they must be kept on the same side of your car. This means that the front left tire and back left tire will switch positions, and the front right tire and back right tire will switch positions. Why can’t the wheels change sides, you ask? When you drive, your tires will develop wear patterns that are related to your vehicle’s alignment and suspension system. Swapping sides could negatively affect the way your vehicle drives.

If your front tires are larger than your back tires, you can rotate your tires side to side but not front to back. Unidirectional or asymmetrical tires, on the other hand, can only be rotated front to back.

It is recommended that your tires should be rotated after driving between 5,000 and 10,000 miles. For a more accurate rotation schedule, you can read your vehicle’s owner’s manual or consult the tires experts at Tire Discounter Auto Centre.
