Lithia Chrysler Jeep of Reno will Rotate Your Tires
A lot of people never think of getting their tires rotated. In fact, many people don't even know what a tire rotation is or what it entails. It's important to maintain your vehicle with regular service, including tire rotation, to keep everything operating as the manufacturer intended it.
Your engine is in the front of the car which weighs down the front and causes the front tires to wear out more frequently. Your tires also wear on the sides from turning. If you rotate your tires it can help them wear out more evenly and extend the amount of time that it takes for your tires to need replacing.
Tire rotation is just one-third of the maintenance that your tires need. Your vehicle's alignment can also affect tire wear, as this keeps the tires at the angle that the manufacturer recommends. Failure to maintain the alignment can result in excessive tire wear on one section of a tire. Your tires also need periodic balancing. Out-of-spec balancing not only results in annoying tire vibration, but it also can cause patchy tire wear. If left out of balance for too long, this patchy wear can become excessive, resulting in your tires needing replacing.
Tire pressure also has an impact on tire wear, as too little pressure causes the outer edges of the tire to wear, whereas too much pressure causes the center of the tire to wear excessively. Checking the pressure in your tires every month can help prevent these issues and extend the life of your tires.
