One question we get all the time is…why do I need my tires rotated? Are tire rotations really necessary? Truth is your tires are one of the most expensive parts on your vehicle ranging from $100 to upwards of $300 per tire. Tires should be rotated every six months or 6,000 to 8,000 miles. During rotation, each tire and wheel is removed from your vehicle and moved to a different position to ensure that all tires wear evenly and last longer. When the tires are rotated it allows the technician more visibility to check brake components more thoroughly possibly saving you a costly repair in the future. At this time the tires can be checked to make sure they are balanced properly, unbalanced tires will cause the tire tread to wear unevenly and shorten the life of the tire. Tire rotation helps your car perform efficiently and safely. The type of car you drive affects how often you should get your tires rotated.
