At Hampton Park Auto, we specialize in tire rotation services to ensure that your vehicle is running at its best, smoothest, and safest. To help you understand the importance of tire rotations and how often you should get them rotated, we have created a handy guide.
How Often Should You Rotate Your Tires?
Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that you get your tires rotated every 7,500 miles or six months. However, we do recommend that you refer to your owner’s manual. To make it easier for you, get into the habit of getting your tires rotated every time you get your oil changed.
Why Should You Rotate Your Tires?
Tires may not wear evenly without regular tire rotations. Front tires play a larger role in braking, which means they will wear out faster than your back tires. So it is important to regularly rotate your tires to ensure they wear down evenly.
Tire Rotation Process
Tire rotation consists of switching the front and rear tires. At Nonos76, our expert professionals remove, swap, and remount your tires so they last longer and drive safer.
Front-Wheel-Drive Car: front left tire moves to back left, front right to back right, back left to front left, and back right to front left.
Rear-Wheel-Drive Car: back left tire moves to front left, back right to front right, front left to back right, and front right to back left.
Tire Rotations Save You Money in the Long Term
Regular tire rotations reduce your risk of many tire problems including a tire blowout or failure. When you consistently rotate your tires you will be less likely to experience those emergency situations. Tire rotations also improve traction on the road and fuel efficiency due to the even wear on your tires.
