Signs You Need Your Tires Rotated
Rotating your tires is a part of maintenance that you want to do preemptively. You do not wait for a sign to tell you it is time, but rather you do it before tire wear becomes uneven. It is a step you take in order to get the most usage out of your tires and in order to get the best performance from your vehicle. Your local experts at Volkswagen of Inver Grove Service Center are here to help explain why you should be scheduling regular tire rotations.
Why is it necessary to rotate your tires?
Vehicle weight is not evenly distributed over all four wheels, and this causes the tires to wear at different rates. The more weight a tire supports the faster it is going to wear down. Typically, the tires that support the engine wear faster. In addition, the driver’s weight is consistently over one tire, so that tire will also wear faster than the other up front. By rotating them at given mileage intervals, you divide that extra wear between all the tires. You will prolong the life of your tires by making sure that they wear more evenly. Otherwise, your front left tire will consistently need to be replaced more often costing you more money over the lifetime of the vehicle. The same is true of any other tire that is consistently carrying more weight than the others.
You want to pace your tire rotations based on given mileage intervals, typically between 7,000 and 10,000 miles. You may also consider getting your tires rotated twice a year, once before winter and once before summer. If you drive under stress conditions, such as heavy city traffic, towing, or hauling heavy loads, you may want to consider rotating your tires more frequently.
