Whether your car is front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive, one thing is inevitable: Your tires will wear unevenly. In order to fix this problem, all you have to do is visit an auto repair shop to get your tires rotated. Here’s why rotating your tires is such an important service.
Extend the Life of Your Tires
Rotating your tires is an easy, inexpensive automotive service that involves switching the front tires with the rear tires. If you rotate your tires regularly, your tires will last longer and you won’t have to spend as much money buying new tires. If you don’t, either the front pair will wear out faster (front-wheel drive cars) or the rear pair will wear out faster (rear-wheel drive cars), and you will have to buy replacements, which is significantly more expensive than a tire rotation service.
Ensure Optimal Handling
Uneven tire wear is a recipe for uneven handling. Rotating your tires will even out the amount of wear on the front and rear tires, which gives your car the ability to grip the road in a more balanced fashion. If you want to be able to improve your car’s traction during slippery weather conditions, rotating your tires regularly is essential.
Forgetting to rotate your tires regularly will negatively affect the level of traction that your tires are able to achieve. When your car’s traction is compromised, your car’s ability to stop and corner is reduced, and the likelihood of a tire blowout increases. Stay safe by going to an auto repair shop and getting regular tire rotations.
Most cars need to have a tire rotation service every 5,000 to 10,000 miles. To find out how often you should rotate your tires, contact DeKalb Tire at (404) 252-9895.
