Why Do I Have To Rotate and Balance My Tires?
Tire rotations and balancing are often overlooked when it comes to auto maintenance services. While they may seem unimportant, these services are extremely beneficial to the health of your tires. Regularly balanced and rotated tires prevent uneven tire wear and ensure that your tires last longer overall.
WHAT IS A TIRE ROTATION?
A tire rotation is when your tires are moved from one position to another. For example, a front tire is moved to the back and vice versa. This helps to ensure that the wear on all of the tires stays even over a period of time.
WHAT IS TIRE BALANCING?
Tire balancing adjusts the tire mounting to ensure that all tires are equally balanced so one side of the tire doesn't have more pressure than the other. It is another way to make sure that your tires wear evenly.
These two services can increase the longevity of your tires by years. Poor road conditions and aggressive driving can cause your tires to come out of balance and put more pressure on your front tires. Having these two services completed regularly can help you avoid having to replace one or two tires sooner than the remaining tires. Lou’s Car Care recommends you rotate your tires every 5,000 miles and balance your tires at least once a year.
