Benefits of Getting a Tire Rotation
You’ve heard about all the little miscellaneous odds and ends you need to have done to your vehicle. A tire rotation might not be the first thing that comes to mind when figuring out what needs to be done, but it should be. Take a look below at some of the benefits of getting a tire rotation!
When done by a professional mechanic, tire rotations can reap you plenty of benefits. First and foremost, they will extend the life of your tires. As you add miles to your vehicle, variations in temperature and terrains will cause your tires to wear out. This wear tends to happen unevenly though, as the front of the vehicle holds the engine and is heavier than the back. This means tires up front will wear out faster. Switching the front tires with the rear tires can extend their lives by about 20 percent.
In addition to that, regular tire rotations can help conserve fuel because the work that has to be done by the tires will be decreased if the wear is even. This adds to greater fuel savings. You’ll also lessen the chances of blowing out a tire on the open road, which of course is the biggest concern and most dangerous part of it.
