Tire rotation is an important, life extending duty for your car, truck, or SUV. It is simple but goes a long way toward making your vehicle safer to drive. Every time you drive, pressure is put on the front tires. Resistance causes friction, which then produces heat. This process is accelerated in front-wheel-drive vehicles because the front wheels also supply the main motive power. The result of the friction and heat is front tires that wear quicker than rear tires.
Because of this unequal wear, it's necessary to rotate the tires front-to-rear several times throughout the life cycle. This equalizes tread wear and maximizes the time you can drive on them. Essentially, this procedure saves you the money of buying new tires more often. The balanced handling it provides also ensures your car will perform properly when you need to make a sudden stop or turn. It can even improve your gas mileage.
Don't overlook tire rotation. Just a few minutes of maintenance will keep your tires wearing evenly, improving your car's handling and overall performance.
