Tyre Rotation: How to do it and why it’s important
It's okay, we know you probably can't remember the last time you rotated your vehicle's tyres. However, we still wanted to write this article about the importance of a routine for taking care of your vehicle - a routine that must include tyre rotation.
We know you may have overlooked tyre rotation in the past but you shouldn't into the future. As commercial tyre experts, we see how poorly managed tyres cost businesses money and also risk the safety of drivers and others.
Many people ask us " why should I rotate my tyres?" There are many reasons, so let's talk about tyre rotation.
We've mentioned in previous articles the importance of tyre health and tyre maintenance. And, one of the best ways to prolong the life of your tyres, and ensure you don't end up unevenly losing tread or balding tyres, is to make sure you rotate your tyres regularly.
Rotating tyres prolongs the life of your tyres. It spreads out the wear and tear, ensuring that any tyre wear occurs evenly. This means that you will save money because you won't need to purchase new tyres as often. It also means that you will improve fuel economy and have a smoother, safer drive. The benefits are obvious.
If you do not rotate your tyres, they will suffer from uneven wear and tear. This can cause several issues - not least of which is decreased safety and decreased comfort. Uneven wear from your tyres can cause car vibrations and unusual noise while driving.
Regularly checking your tyres is essential. If you notice any differences in your tread depth, it's important to get your rotation done - before it is too late.
You want to do this before you start feeling vibrations through your steering wheel or, worse, your car pulling to one side. These could be signs of your tyres wearing out unevenly or worse. It could be that it's affected other parts of your car. It could be that you end up spending much more than you had previously needed to spend on a routine tyre rotation.
