Why Rotate Tires?

You know why you should change your oil and air filter, but why rotate tires? Rotating tires helps to distribute wear evenly across the set, which offers benefits ranging from performance to fuel economy. Learning why and how often to rotate tires will help you keep your car in top shape around Baytown roads, so it’s important to stay on top of those maintenance appointments. Follow along with Baytown Nissan as we take a deeper look at what rotating your tires does below.

What Does Rotating Your Tires Do?

As you navigate the La Porte roads, your tires take on a lot of stress and strain. However, that stress is not applied equally across all four tires. If you have front-wheel drive, your front tires receive a lot of extra pressure and weight from the design of the vehicle – which can drastically affect tread and air pressure. If you never rotate your tires, your front tires could end up bare well before your rear tires! When you rotate your tires regularly, you get more even wear. This leads to better fuel economy, a quieter ride, better traction, and better safety overall.

How Often to Rotate Tires

So, how often to rotate tires? Most experts recommend rotating your tires every six months or every 5,000 to 7,000 miles – but this depends on your particular driving habits. If you drive on rugged roads around Liberty, you’ll want to schedule your service earlier than someone who rarely drives. Here is the basic process of rotating your tires:

  • Front-Wheel Drive: Move the rear tires to the front and flip them. Move front tires to the back and keep them on the same side.
  • Rear-Wheel Drive: Move the front tires to the front and flip them. Move rear tires to the back and keep them on the same side.

When you rotate tires regularly, you’ll prevent the likelihood of flat tires and blowouts. Plus, you’ll maintain better traction and handling on tough road conditions.
