What Is Tire Rotation?
What is tire rotation? Delray Beach drivers have probably heard the phrase, but what does it mean? Tire rotation is important for maintaining traction, preventing blowouts, and even improving fuel economy. Next time you schedule service, make sure you remember to get your tires rotated!
What Does a Tire Rotation Mean?
Tire rotation is, simply put, when tires are moved from one position to another on a vehicle. Generally speaking, the front tires will be moved to the rear while the rear tires will move to the front. Additionally, they may change sides to more evenly distribute wear and tear.
Usually, a car or SUV like the Range Rover Sport will carry more weight in the front, meaning that those front tires will wear out more quickly. Tire rotation prevents uneven wear, making each tire last longer. Even if you only take short commutes through Boca Raton, regular tire rotation is important.
What Does Tire Rotation Do?
- Maintains Traction: When tires wear down, they lose tread depth. A loss of tread depth means traction is reduced, which can interfere with your ability to control the vehicle in certain situations. Preventing uneven tire wear helps ensure that all tires have the same amount of tread.
- Prevents Blowouts: Tires become more likely to fail as they get worn down. If you’ve ever had one blow out as you drive, you’ll know how unpleasant and potentially dangerous it can be.
- Improves Performance: Tires working together that have uneven wear often produce vibration, which you’ll eventually feel through the steering wheel.
- Maximizes Efficiency: Worn tires create drag, placing strain on the engine and increasing your fuel consumption.
