Why Get Tires Rotated?

Tires typically wear unevenly. Those in the front often wear more on the outside edges thanks to turning, while those in back usually wear pretty evenly. However, leaving tires in place means that your front tires will wear much more quickly than the rest, and you’ll end up having to them replaced much sooner. Poor tire alignment also causes uneven tire wear.

When to Get Tires Rotated

How often you should rotate your tires depends on your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation. Often, drivers have their tires rotated when they get their oil changed. However, if you notice signs of irregular wear, make sure to have your tires rotated, even if this occurs before your regular interval.
