You’ve likely heard that you need to rotate your tires every so often. Do you know why rotating your tires is important?
Tire rotation helps to reduce uneven wear, improving the longevity of your tires overall. The front tires bear more of the braking, which increases wear.
Uneven wear may not seem like it will be a big issue, but when one or more of your tires is wearing unevenly, it can affect the quality of your ride and gas mileage, and will lead to the deterioration of your tires faster. Committing to rotating your tires every 5,000 to 7,000 miles will help you protect your vehicle.
