To get the most life out of your tires, our experts at Hank's Tirecraft Carleton Place recommend rotating your tires on a regular basis. Front and rear tires wear differently; for example, the front tires carry more than 60% of your car’s weight. As a result, front tires wear down faster than the rear ones. Tire rotations equalize these natural wear patterns by changing the positions of your tires, but it isn’t quite as simple as just moving tires from the front to the back.
Here are some quick facts about Tire Rotations:
During a tire rotation your our service technician will also adjust the air pressure according to your manufacture’s specifications. By rotating your tires regularly, you’ll ensure yourself a smoother and safer ride. You can also save money in the long run by extending the life of your tires.
Check your car’s owner’s manual for the recommended tire rotation schedule. Most manufacturers recommend that you rotate your tires every 10,000km. For vehicles that are used for heavy-duty or off road driving and have aggressive tread tires, it can be a good idea to rotate these tires at 5,000km to avoid uneven wear.
