Benefits of Regular Tire Rotations (And when to do them!)

Benefits of Regular Tire Rotations (And when to do them!)

Your tires play a huge role in impacting your overall driving experience. They’re also responsible for how effectively your car brakes, accelerates, and maneuvers on the road. Unfortunately, most car owners are guilty of ignoring their tire health, but you should always pay close attention to it.

 

One of the best ways to increase your tire life is tire rotation. If you’re wondering why it’s beneficial, here are a few reasons to consider it.

What Is Tire Rotation?

 

The term tire rotation is self-explanatory. It means to move or interchange your tires while driving. For example, if you have a front-wheel drive car, you can shift your front tires to the back and bring the rear tires in front. However, if you have a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, you can only switch sides.

 

If you’re unsure about tire rotation and how often it should be done, refer to your car user manual. Generally, a tire rotation is recommended every 8000 km. Tire rotation doesn’t cost much, and it doesn’t take up too much time, either. However, it helps even out the wear and tear on your tread, maintains pressure, and increases the overall lifespan of the tires.

 

Why Is Tire Rotation Important?

 

Smoother Ride

 

Your tires tend to perform different tasks when in motion. This can cause them to wear at different rates. This can have much to do with the road you’re travelling on, weather conditions, and driving style. When rotated regularly, it becomes convenient to maintain the tread on the tires and evenly distribute the wear and tear.

 

Better Safety

 

When you have uneven wear on your tires, this affects the tire rotation on the road, and you will not be able to drive as smoothly as you would like. It also becomes more challenging to tackle a sharp turn, drive on wet and icy roads, and make a hard stop. This can increase the risk of an accident.

 

Fuel Efficiency

 

Unevenly worn tires do not maintain uniform contact on the road while travelling. This results in more friction than necessary and more stress on your engine. This, in turn, results in your engine needing more fuel to move.

 

Long Lasting Tires & Suspension

 

When you have uneven tires, not only does it affect the lifespan of your tires, but it also stresses your suspension system, which might eventually give way. Damage to your suspension will put a lot of driving pressure and increase the risk of accidents.
