Rotating Your Tires & Why It's Important

Explained by our Service Advisor Sydney

Why Rotate Your Tires?

  1. Uneven wear - Evenly spread the load so that one set of tires doesn't wear out before the rest do.

  2. Save your money - Replacing tires frequently can really impact your pocket. Getting your tires rotated will help extend their road life and prevent wear and tear that can lead to costly repairs.If you allow your tires to wear down, it can also lead to extra stress on other parts of your vehicle, including your axles and transmission. Avoid issues like this simply by having your tires rotated as often as you change your oil.

  3. Improved Efficiency - Worn down tires can lead to your vehicle working harder than usual to get up to speed. The tread is what grips to the road and allows your vehicle to build momentum. Without grip, your car will place extra stress on your axle and tires to get going. If your vehicle is working harder, your fuel efficiency will in turn decrease.

  4. Predictable Driving - Predictable driving is important for not only keeping you safe, but also your passengers and other drivers on the road. When tires get worn down unevenly, your vehicle may begin driving unpredictably, taking curves will become more difficult, and straying out of your lane is more likely to happen. Sometimes, these changes are not large enough to notice, but they are still extremely dangerous to you and others.

  5. Safety - As mentioned above, your safety and the safety of others is something everyone should be thinking about when it comes to driving your vehicle. Avoiding disasters start with regularly maintaining your vehicle, and tire rotations are a priority on that maintenance list. The next time you bring your vehicle into Amato Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for your regular oil change, make sure to ask for your tires to be rotated. Stay safe and save money at the same time!
