Q. Why should I rotate my tires?

A. All tires wear differently, which is why it’s important to even out the wear. Typically your front tires get about 10,000 to 20,000 miles and the rears 20,00 to 80,000 miles if not rotated. However, by rotating your tires you add an additional 10,000 to 15,000 miles to the life of the tires. Another benefit is that you get a free brake inspection every few months rather then paying someone else to do the exact same thing.

Q. How is this possible?

A. It’s common for the front tires to wear faster on the outside edges of the tire because your car tilts to the side when you turn. Therefore only your front tires edges are wearing while your rear tires are not, this is why we rotate your rear tires to the front and also why people sometimes only replace the front tires.

Q. When do I rotate?

A. For best results and to get your tires to last the longest rotate every 5,000 miles. Some experts suggest 6,000 to 7,500 miles but this is after your tires have began to have improper wear and takes away from the life of the tires.

Q. How/where do I rotate my tires?

You can take you vehicle to any tire shop and most mechanics, prices range from $10 to $40.
