Tire rotation

KEEP YOUR TIRES IN TOP CONDITION

For many drivers, a new set of tires represents a sizeable investment. Fortunately, regularly scheduled maintenance can maximize your return on that investment. When it comes to your new set of Goodyear, Cooper, Kelly or Dunlop tires, the maintenance is very simple, very effective and very affordable, if not free! It’s called tire rotation.

What does tire rotation do?

Tire rotation simply refers to switching the position of each tire on the car. In the simplest example, the tires at the front of the car are moved to the rear of the car and vice versa. Changing each tire’s position on the car on a regular basis helps all the tires to wear more evenly and last longer.

How often should tires be rotated?

We suggest tire rotation every 6,000-8,000 miles. Tires on four-wheel-drive vehicles may require more frequent rotation—as often as every 4,000 miles. (Check your owner’s manual to see if your vehicle’s manufacturer suggests a specific interval.) A good rule of thumb is to ask for a tire rotation each time you have your oil changed, while your car is already on the lift.

Notice uneven wear?
Regardless of mileage, you should have your tires rotated if you notice uneven or premature wear, even if it’s only on one tire. Mountain View Tire experts can check your vehicle to determine the reason for the irregular wear, as not addressing the cause of the problem would eventually shorten the service life of your tire(s) and possibly affect the operation and fuel efficiency of your vehicle.
