The Importance of Tire Rotations

There are many reasons why you need to have your tires rotated regularly. Some of the most important ones include:

  • Even Wear: You generally rotate your tires in order to guarantee that they wear evenly.
  • Prolonged Life: Your tires will generally last longer if they are rotated regularly.
  • Gas Mileage: Uneven wear and overly worn tires can lead to poor gas mileage.
  • Handling: Overly worn tires, and especially unevenly worn tires, can cause poor handling, and can cause the car to pull to one side.
  • Ride Quality: Unevenly worn tires can lead to undesirable vibration and poor ride quality.
  • Preventative Maintenance: During your regular tire rotation, the experts here at Chevrolet of Homewood get a chance to inspect the underbody of your car for any problems.

So when do you know you need to get your tires rotated? As a good rule, you should have them rotated whenever you have your oil changed. Since this isn’t always the same for different vehicles, we always recommend that you default to your owner’s manual. Some cars might allow you to rotate your tires every other oil change, or you might have to rotate your tires between oil changes if you use long-running synthetic lubricants.

If you notice any uneven wear on your tires, or if you notice tire noise or vibration, then it’s definitely time to schedule service online with the experts here at Chevrolet of Homewood so we can rotate your tires.

We recommend that you check the service specials page to get the best price on your next tire rotation.
